Blessed are the curious...for they create a better world.

I'm still on a sewing spree! Here is a lace cuff that I made for my partner, Thespa, in the Marie Antoinette Mail Art group. My good buddy Lorraine hosted this swap, and the challenge was to create a bracelet out of lace and fabric and vintage goodies. My cuff was created with a special wool felt and some vintage lace. I love making the folded rosettes with all different kinds of ribbons and fabrics, and for this piece I used one make out of a twill ribbon to anchor it in the middle. It is surrounded by a lace rosette and a felt rosette.
My favorite part about MAMA swaps is that it challenges me to try new things. My sewing machine was downright dusty before this, and now I have regained my confidence that I know how to use the thing and am sewing more cuffs, purses and other accessories. It's a blast!
A very happy Pink Saturday to the wonderful link party participants - you have really been so sweet with all of your comments and have inspired me to keep up this blogging thing. Thanks so very much for your visits!
