The heart is a trapped bead. I stitched six needle woven picots around it with House of Embroidery perlé 8. This is a lovely thread to do this stitch with.
Needle woven picots turned out to be the TAST stitch of week 44.
Sorry for the blurred picture, forgot the macro button I guess.
I attached the six leaves to the trapped bead.
Next I added brownish and yellow beads to the centre.
Just between the first six leaves I stitched six more woven picots.
This is the whole picture as it looks now.
