Season to Season Winter/Mary's Block

Here is Mary's Lears winter block completed.
When I received her block she only had done the middle section, the little house.

OK, I'll start with:
The right bottom corner - outline stitch, with lasy daisy stitches to form the snowflake pattern, followed with sequin and bead seam treatment.
The next I did a tacked herringbone stitch, added the purple and green heart buttons then I did french knots to kinda make some flowers, then in the middle of the herringbone, straight stitches to form star stitches.
The lettering of Winter is beaded with silver beads, then the seam treatment are long fly stitches with short straight stitches, then lasy daisy stitches added with french knots.
The silver snowflake was done with bugle beads, seam treatment lasy daisy flowers centered with a bead.
The next seam treatment is chain stitched added with silk ribbon leaves.
Lastly the fern like tree is a outlined stalk, with fly stitches for leaves then with red beads added.
Oops forgot about the buttons.
Hope she likes it.
