I NEEDED These Scissors!

Tula Pink Scissors

Good Morning, Quilters!

I recognize the line between Needs and Wants is blurry–especially when it comes to quilt notions….

But when I saw these colorful Tula Pink scissors–they went straight to the need category!

I wasn’t sure about the snips…but who doesn’t like a matched set??

–like a sweater set…(am I showing my age?!)

So both the iridescent scissors and the snips came home with me…(insert smiley face!)

Once I tried the snips…I realized they were actually a NEED too!  I’ve always used small scissors to snip my threads.  Now I’m a convert!

DIDN’T MAKE THE CUT

In other news, I just received a package from my publisher, Martingale, with all the samples and quilts I sent off for my book.

This version of The Square Flower (page 96) didn’t make the book…

(One can’t take these things personally-LOL!)

I wanted to demonstrate that the Square Flower can be stitched into any shape–like diamonds shown here.

Wouldn’t this be a fabulous quilt border???

I think I will go buy a bouquet of yellow Daffodils…

What about YOU?

Any great finds at YOUR local quilt shop lately?

Have you tried any motifs from Free Motion Machine Quilting 1-2-3?

We’d LOVE to hear!

PS…Confession:  (I have to admit…the Tula Pink scissors weren’t the only “needs” from my last trip…more next week…ssshhhhhh!)
