You know you’re loved……


So how would you finish that?  Me?  I’d finish it with this:


Just look how cute these are… Oh, what are they / is it you ask?  Well, it’s scissors!

My dear friend and her hubby took a vacation to Louisiana and came across a crafts sort of store.  He saw these, went and got her and they both said “Katie” and bought them for me.  So, I know I’m loved….My friends got something for me that they knew would make me smile just thinking about these.  Do I have great friends or what!?

Nothing on the sewing front.  I needed to finish up a banner for the local Elk’s lodge of which my hubby is a member.  I did pull out fabric to border this:


Sort of hard to tell from the picture, but the print and the embroidery had quite a bit of coral color and I would like to have done a narrow border in coral, but I simply didn’t have anything in my stash that would work and I’ve made up my mind that all my comfort quilts will be made from fabrics already in my stash, so…. Then trying to decide what to border it with.  I usually lean toward dark borders but this one will be bordered in the light blue that the embroidery was stitched on.  I’m thinking I want cornerstones….need to come up with something.  I love the colors in this quilt.  This will be a hard one to let go of…… but truly I don’t really need another quilt.  I do have similar colors that I’ve actually got packaged up and put away specifically for making myself a quilt.  Probably by the time I get around to making it, though, my color preferences will have changed Smile.

Sew…. on my agenda today will be getting this quilt bordered, get a backing together and hopefully getting it on the frame and ready to quilt.   Maybe my next blog post will be of this quilt completed!

LOVE your scissors!! Wonder if they make a Left-Handed version - haha. And I LOVE your comfort quilt. You probably already have the border on but I think that I would try to carry the darker squares out into the cornerstones - make it look like you planned it that way - ;))

Those scissors are super cute. Can't wait to see what you decide on the quilt. I could go either way.
