Deep, Deep Red

I just finished a new felt cuff. It's a lovely red...deep, deep red. I used black and shades of grey to embroider the flowers, scrolls and leaves. It has a really sophisticated look and would look great with jeans or a great suit. I finished the inside so that if you are allergic to wool it won't make you itchy! 
 
In the next couple of days I'm going to start a series on embroidery....embroidery 101. With a few basic stitches you can make beautiful accessories, or embellish some of your own items. I am now bleary-eyed...and think I'll go rest my eyes!

I appreciate your work, and would love to hear who collects your cuffs! I love embroidery but don't do it as often as I'd like. Machine embroidery tends to rule. I do love your style and color choices and lovely blog.
Cheers!

That is really beautiful!

I bought felt beads and embroidery thread - I want to embroider them. I have one of those curved needles too.

I've done a lot of hand stitching in my day, but never embroidery, so it ought to be interesting!
