Among other things that I have been busy doing lately, I am working on this embroidered cuff. The first photo, taken on mid July, shows the first steps of the work. I have drawn some lines to help me follow a rather geometric pattern I had in mind (anyone has an idea of how I can erase the pencil lines without ruining the stiffed material? Regular eraser won't do..), but as I finished the center part, I decided to make something else and worked in a more free pattern. The other photo was taken a few days ago. There's still much to be done before it's finished (and I still need more practice..).
I don't know why, but when I'm working on an embroidered piece, I have to take breaks and work on other things. It's not that I don't like this kind of work, on the contrary – I have realized that bead embroidery is a wonderful way to express myself, but somehow, it requires more patience… I hope to be able to work on this cuff this week and finally finish it.
