Necessaire de Voyage - Travel Necessary

One day Thursday June 9 and 1/2 day Friday morning, June 10

Delicate silk stitched pale yellow Primroses, pure white Snowdrops and blue Dutch Iris flowers in the decorative arts style of Art Nouveau adorn the panels of this stunning "Necessaire de Voyage."  The entire travel case will be stitched on 32 count linen with silk fibers and hand-dyed ribbons. Untie the closure and the travel necessary reveals a silk taffeta lined interior, with pleats and pockets.  A storage area has a place for all your treasured traveling tools and stitched accessories.

Darning Darling

1/2 day Friday afternoon, June 10

Jackie has not yet settled on a name for this project - but it is a "darling" heart-shaped case with a small darning sampler rolled up inside, stitched in burgundy

Case Study II

One day Saturday, June 11

A traditional geometric sampler band worked four times, using different stitches in each band to create a functional storage box that finishes into a cylinder case that will hold 2 containers (bottles/jars).  Colors are greens and blue/green aqua.
