I was excited to find some time this weekend to make some cuffs that have been on my mind for a while now, and of course, I plan to make more. These are very addicting, they feel like painting with fabric and texture to me, and there is so much freedom of expression involved. The best part is that I finally made use of some of my most treasured vintage items....buttons, laces, and really exsquisite millinery flowers I nabbed a few weeks ago that I love most of all! There is lots of hand detailing in these pieces, oh, and vintage crystals and hand dyed cheesecloth! I hope to list them on etsy later, after the day job and this 3 day headache.
Hope your day is a great one, and thanks so much for visiting!

Sharon, I always love what you do with fabric and lace. And what a perfect canvas to create with the things you love - the trim, the buttons, the sweet images. I especially like the cream-colored cuff with the bird image. The details are really beautiful.
