SCF EXPO Results

I sold out of all my sets of playing card holders. I only made 4 sets so not too hard. Folks have been asking for them at the last two EXPOS and I finally made some. Here is one set (each set was a different color).

They require a round plastic canvas with a raised circle in the middle and about 4 yards of yarn. When I use a striped yarn, which I like the look of best, I use one solid length.

They take me about 45 minutes to make one circle and you need two per holder. This adds up to about 6 very tedious, monotonous and sometimes boring stitching. Which is why I waited to start them and only got 4 sets done.

Our next EXPO is Oct. 5, so I plan to try and space out the making of them, so I don't get tired of them. I did figure out a way to read while making them. My Kindle case has an easel back and I set it up on my desk and while I am pulling the VERY long length of thread through a hole I can read a few sentences! Works for me anyway.

Thanks for stopping by!
