A New Pattern - Sewing Scissors!!!...


This morning I am happy to announce the release of the first of my new patterns that I designed for my Polka Dot Stitches fall market display.

Yay!!!

It feels so good to be getting them into pattern form...
which is always the hardest part for me because I really try to write very detailed instructions for you...
and that takes a while:)


My quilt has 9 pair of quilty scissors...


One inch buttons where the blades cross...


They go upside down and right side up...


And of course I included a pair with red gingham handles:)



I made running stitches in between each row of scissors...



And finished it off with a cross-stitch border.


I loved making the X blocks... 
so I made a few more for a pillow with white jumbo pom-pom's:)




I used a few Sew Cherry and Millie's Closet fabrics along with my Polka Dot Stitches line...
 all 3 lines work together nicely don't you think?




Introducing...
by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet

it's a perfect companion to my 

Many thanks to all of you who have emailed me asking about my new patterns.
I have so appreciated your patience as I try to get them all completed...
you are all really amazing and so sweet...
thank you again.

Have a quilty weekend:)
