Hydrangea cuff....

Another "practice cuff" is complete.
It is lots prettier in person than in the photo.
(I may have to take some more pictures)
I wanted to try my hand at lots and lots of French knots which are the base of this new cuff.  The center flowers are hydrangeas, and I'm calling the side flowers morning glories.  
The cuff's closure is a mother of pearl button which really reflects the colors of the lavender and blue hydrangeas and the green leaves.
Now I'm really getting excited about starting the bridal cuff.
For now, I have a hallway to paint while I wait for my supplies to come in the mail.

  1. Oh, Jody! I love the cuffs. They remind me of Romeo and Juliet. Your embroidery is extra-stunning.

  2. A button and a loop? I can't tell. Maybe I could knit i-cord out of very thin yarn or thread for the loop. BEAUTIFUL! This makes me want to practice my embroidery. I am going to order Doodle Stitching.

  3. Pom Pom,
    Thank you for the compliments. I still haven't made that loop yet. Trying to decide if I should crochet some pearl floss or use an elastic. As you can see, it's not yet attached. Practice your embroidery now, you'll have fun! Yes, Doodle Stitching is a good book!

  11. I am totally digging these cuffs. Would you ever make them and sell them? Is there anyone else on etsy that has them (and not for $82!!!!!) if you don't?!?!?

  12. Thanks, everybody, for your generous comments and compliments. It's very encouraging to me.

    HWest, I might consider making cuffs for sale. $82 seems a very steep price to me, but the hydrangea cuff has lots of hours in it. Maybe we can talk about it.

  15. Beautiful! I'm mighty impressed, and I love the fact that you're a woman who spends part of her week birthing lambs and the other part making more loveliness for the world.

  17. Debbie,
    I ordered some of the Swarvarski beads that I will use for the bridal cuff from sellers at Etsy. The felt is a wool/acrylic combo that I found from ericas.com.
