...they are sharp, light weight, and have a nice precision-fine tip, making it easy to get into tight spots. Yet, I'm always on the hunt for new and better scissors, and this year at Houston, I bought Kai's serrated scissors:
and am in Love with these. They're just like they're regular scissors: light weight, fit great around my fingers, and are very sharp, and I loved finding a set of three, for small to large areas. Of course, the fact that this technique is so quick means I have lots of little projects that have been fused, but are waiting to be sewn down and quilted... here are a few I plan to finish in 2013...oops, 2012:
The snowmen are Yo-Yos made with Clover's Yo-Yo makers...
....yes, I do love gadgets! Oops, missing a Yo-Yo!
These guys are balloons - will add string once its quilted
I made this from a photo I took in Lancaster County, of course, I need to add a bit of shading, perhaps a little thread painting will work, along with a little paint
This tiny art quilt only measures 7"x 9" - I hand dyed most of the fabrics
Okay, no much instant gratification...lots of small patchwork - hence the delay in finishing it!
And here is one of my favorites, but those berries where a pain to cut out :-)
And almost forgotten: one of my first raw-edge projects; it's time I get it done
Guess this one will be one of the firsts to work on, maybe I can have it done in time for Easter...2012...,13... okay, just kidding, 2012 for sure
I can't believe I haven't finished either of these two. I absolutely love the fun chickens...
...and the swirls in this Pickle Rd. quilt.
So, these are some of my New Year's *GTD resolutions...
