Spring Mouse Scissor Roll
Limited Edition 2019

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.”

Stitch the roll as one long piece on Weeks
32 CT Morris Blue Linen, 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.

Dilly Mouse is stitched on Weeks 32 CT Honeysuckle Linen. 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.

Complete finishing instructions for the roll and the mouse are in the Stitch Guide.
