Diana's Scissor Keep...

I started (and finished) the scissor keep for my sister, Diana yesterday. She loves purple (and Marvin the Martian, but I'll save that for another time), so that's how I decided on her colors.

I made a queen-size quilt for her for Christmas 2010, so I used a few scraps from that project for this one. (In case you're interested, here is my post on her quilt.)
Instead of calling this a geranium, it could be a lilac blossom. Or perhaps a little hydrangea. Or a generic lavender bloom of some sort. I'll let her decide.

I'll put it in an envelope today and send it on its way to Minnesota. (Di, you'll have to use your own scissors. These happen to be one of my favorites!) I know. So much for the surprise. Oh, well.

Happy Summer, Sissyhead!

Your work is always so beautiful. It looks so pretty in pictures, but I bet it is even more lovely in reality so your sister is able to doubly appreciate it. Have a great day! Tammy
