President’s Challenge – June Photos

Be joyous. Start and finish a small project.

From Laura Sandison:sandison1
The little project that I worked on was really a couple of things that go together.  I stitched the scissor case that was sold as a fund raiser for Stitchin’ Fiesta 2014 in San Antonio, this year’s convention. To go with that, I also did the scissor fob. Both were quick-ish worked up in peyote stitch. Brick was recommended, but I think peyote is stronger.  I may add a twisted cord around the edge of the scissor case to protect the thread edge.  But, that’s another road trip project.

I did it!   I like the way the beading turned out.  All the beads and sparkly threads were purchased at garage sales this swistara2year.   I’m thinking of giving it away for a Christmas gift.

The canvas piece is the project of the month Ballpark  ( something) .  It turned out bigger than I like for an ornament so  my husband said he would make a box for it.

The plaid pencil container is done in a plaid design. I am going to teach it at a Desert West chapter meeting. It is stitched on 14 ct canvas with tapestry yarn and glued to a baking powder can.

My small completed project is a wool applique candle mat.  I purchased it several years ago at Merchandise Night at a IMG_5655region seminar (I think 2013).  It was very simple using blanket stitch, French knots and stem stitch.
