What do you wear when you want to look good in the desert? Why, this Desert Diva cuff, of course!

Once again, Carol Dean Sharpe (aka SandFibers) deserves some credit for this creation. After she saw my Camo Cuff she said that I needed to create a camouflage design that would work in the desert, in honor of the troops who are (sadly) still serving in Iraq. She even sent me a link to Wikipedia to help me out with the design! How nice is that?!?!?

Once I saw the design of the 6-color chocolate chip camouflage, I knew I'd have to create something like that. It's so very different than the "woodsy" camouflage design I used for my other cuffs (oh yeah, I also created a cuff called Hiding in the Hydrangeas, for people who just don't want to wear traditional camo). This pattern actually uses five colors -- cream, mocha, chocolate brown, black, and white; and I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

It's what all the desert divas are wearing this season... :-)

What a wonderful way to Support Your Troops! I guess being this close to Ft. Bliss (where I was born, btw) keeps it pretty close to home. We have a huge active and retired military community in the area.

Well done, MaryLou :D

MaryLou - this is hot!! :)

I love your pattern and when I first saw it, I thought of the cave paintings in Lascaux, France.

Now there's an idea... my husband loves those cave paintings. I might have to try that out. :-)

Thanks to everyone for the nice compliments!

Love your sand colored camoflage cuff, MaryLou. Thought I had answered this before but apparently not. Oh well, they say the brain goes first.
