Christmas Stocking Cuff (again)

I found this picture buried in the Christmas stocking cuff file, and it occurred to me that there is still time to do stocking cuffs before the finishing deadlines.

I really like the idea of the cuffs rather than stitching a full stocking anyway, as they make a prettier, and not quite so busy, accessory hanging over the fireplace in a group for a family.

This one was a custom piece I painted long ago as an addition to some already existing cuffs I had - in the William Morris/Art Nouveau look. I was short one in the collection, so had to draw a new one that would coordinate.

This cuff is very cheerful and festive in color, and would be soooo pretty with some sparkle and shine on it - not overdone, but enough to make a statement. Since I am a.k.a. "Granny" in this family, that might look nice on it.

Cheerful and festive without being overblown - a really good balance!

Lovely! I'm not anyone's grandmother, but I'd like it, too!

Quite beautiful and a very different design. Will be elegant!
