Just Nan tells us "This is the second design in our series called Mouse on a Roll (MOAR). 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 the outside of the roll features a mouse and a moment in a spring garden. Look for a fence with flowers under the wisteria; daffodils under a splashing wall fountain; towering jonquils reaching for the sun, and a large basket of flowers on a garden table. Tiny pink tulips separate the scenes which are grounded with graphic grass patterns. The scenes are embellished with white pearl and pink beads, with a frosted amber bead marking the closure. Inside, 3 little helper mice scurry through spring flowers to a bower filled with roses, violets and crocus - the padded pocket for the scissors. Find a fourth mouse peeking through the trellis! The verse: “In a bower among the flowers pretty scissors hide.”"
Materials included: Color Cover, 8-page Stitch Guide, overdyed iris wool, wired string tail, signature button base, glass flower hat, beads, snap, amber glass bead and the stock scissors charm. Not included: fusible craft weight interfacing, stuffing for the mouse, scissors.
Linen for Roll:
32 count Morris Blue Linen from Weeks Dye Works, form a scissor pocket with the overdyed wool backing, sew on a snap and roll it up! Four mouse garden scenes will show on the outside, the path to the scissors and verse will be inside and your scissors will stand at attention in the middle. Place Dilly Mouse on top of the roll to guard the scissors.
Linen for Mouse: Dilly Mouse is stitched on 32 count Honeysuckle Linen from Weeks Dye Works. She is named for her favorite flower, so her dress is decorated with daffodils. Her hat is an amber glass daffodil, her tail is gold wired string and she is holding a tiny pair of gold stork scissors. She is not available separately.
The design calls for DMC cotton floss. Please check the boxes above to have the linens and threads added to your order.
