ASSORTED PUFFS






The above are puffs that I sat and made yesterday. It was a dull, rainy day and I spent it all working on the puffs. They are a lot of fun. I made two kinds. The one is where you do French knots all around a large circle then draw it in like you would when making yoyos. This way when gathered all the knots are on top.

The other is cutwork done first then a small piece of whatever lace you want is put in the middle then gathered around like above. This time the cutwork and lace appear on top. I also did French Knots around the cutwork and really liked that look.

This class has been wonderful and I can't wait for the next one (Extended Embellishment) to start next week.

Really wish I could be taking the next class right along with you, but I am trying to be 'good' and finish the current one first. Your puffs are so exquisite!

Oh Freda, you and my friend Jane in England are both way ahead of me in the stitching arena! She is also following these classes in whitework, and between the pair of you, I am gobsmacked at what you are doing!
I'm afraid I'm just too lazy to even attempt anything so fine.
