Just Nan tells us: "For your summer stitching pleasure, we are introducing a new series called Mouse on a Roll (MOAR). We are offering the first one in 2018, then continuing the series in 2019. All scissor rolls in the series will be the same size, and each will feature a guardian mouse. The rolls are designed to hold 3½” or 4” scissors of your choice."
Each of the mouse garden scenes on this first roll features a mouse and a moment in the summer garden. Look for a bird house (with bird) surrounded by lavender flowers; a hanging basket of flowers over a koi pond; sunflowers around a shiny gazing ball and a large blue pot under a rose trellis. Tiny daisy chains separate the scenes which are grounded with bargello grass patterns. The scenes are embellished with white pearl beads and pale lavender pearls, with a gold lotus bead marking the closure. Inside, 4 little helper mice scurry along a garden path to the scissors house which is the padded pocket for the scissors. The verse: “Follow a mouse to the scissors house.”
Linen for Mouse: Daisy Mouse is stitched on Weeks 32 CT Blush Linen. She wears a dress adorned with daisies and other summer flowers, her hat is a white daisy-like flower, her tail is gold wired string and she is holding a tiny skein of floss.
