Lake Co Fair (1 of 2 posts)


HANDICRAFTS I
Class 708: Holiday Decoration - Not Spec
Second Place Ribbon

Spring Fling
c.2004 Homespun Elegance Ltd.
Designed by Sandra Sullivan

I made some changes to the design: For this project, I flipped the motifs & changed the over-dye fiber colors.
The flowers & bunny tail are french knots.
I used Buttercrunch GAST, Cadet WDW, Kudzu WDW, Camellia WDW, Bordeaux WDW & a small amount of Straw WDW + Molasses WDW on 32-ct Lambswool Linen.

To finish into a small pillow I used Mill Hill glass seed beads #02019 around the edge.

NEEDLECRAFT II
Class 1117: Counted Cross Misc - Miniature Item
First Place Ribbon

Mimi's Pin Cube
Olde Colonial Designs
C.2003 by Pamela D. Reed

This kit included 32-ct Fratelli Graziano Italian Cream Siena Linen,
Gentle Art Old Red Paint and Grecian Gold,
DMC 3052, 611 & 642.
The pins, cardboard, and padding also included in the kit.
I managed to lace the linen to
the cardboard & padding.
Whip stitched them together & pushed in the pins.



SEWING
Class 1378: Home Decor - Decorating Pillow
First Place Ribbon

My Original Design - hand sewn, hand applique

This is a patriotic theme I designed.
It was a challenge to select the red,white,blue fabrics from my slim stash.
Just fun to create something unique.
The applique and stitching is not perfect; however, I'm pleased with the way it turned out.
