Almost Finished

I am almost done working on this embroidered cuff. Of course I have to attach it to a backing material – Ultrasuede or genuine leather – I haven't decided yet. I am also not sure yet what kind of closure to use. But those are the easy part, arn't they? :)
I will post the finished cuff when it's ready, and after my photographer is back from his vacation (this not-so-good photo was taken by me with my son's camera ;).

Right after I will finish this embroidered piece, I am going to start working on embroidered squares for Jeanette Shanigan's beaded quilts project “Bead-It-Forward” Breast Cancer Donation Project. The theme this year is "Heart". Check out Jeanette's site and see the finished quilts she makes using beaded squares. You might want to take part in this project.
I am happy to participate in this project for this important, good cause and I already have an idea of what I want to make. I just hope that this embroidered work will be finished before the dead-line…


  1. Oh my goodness, that is beautiful! I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    It's always such a treat to swing by here and drop off ECards, I love seeing what new and lovely project you have going on. :)

  2. So beautiful! Please show us close up shots when it's done.. The beaded squares sounds like a great project. If I could bead I would certainly join the cause.

  3. Ooooh ! I can't wait to see the finished cuff !
    Just as it is it looks so beautiful, with all those dreamy cream-y colors !
    Keep up the good work !
