My Cuff Swap has arrived.

I joined in theVictorian Cuff Swap hosted by Honey Lamb and I and yesterday my package arrived. It was so exciting to open and I was sooo.... delighted with what I received.

Inside the envelope was a a card from Virginie, and a red bag with my cuff. When I opened it I was so delighted,she has worked so hard to learn some new sewing skills to make this for me.
See how beautifully she made the fastening and covered the button.
She even put in her own label.
On the card was a lovely message and a surprise, a gift voucher to spend with her.
You made my day Virginie, so many' THANKS', I'm shouting in case you can hear me across the Irish Sea.

Here's what I sent to Virginie.

I put it in a little bag.
I made a little box to put it in.

The cuff has a rolled rose made from coffee stained ribbon and stitched either side with pearls and pink seed beads over pink lace roses. It is all on some pretty lace that I had in my box.
I covered the box with some of my grandma's crochet then added another rose and some ribbon.

I have really enjoyed making all these things and hope Virginie likes them.

I'm off to Cornwall now to see my friend at Cowslip and for my grandson to audition for a part in the Duchy Ballets new production of The Nutcracker.
Have a good Sunday everyone!

Both of the cuffs are beautiful! Thank you for sharing, Angela. I just got home from a trip, so I won't see mine until I get all my mail from the post office tomorrow. I'm dying to see it!
Blessings from America.
