NEWS!

The news is that I, Darci of Stitches & Scissors,  have decided to open an Etsy shop! I know I know, everyone is doing it and that is why it has taken me so long but with the encouragement of my family (mainly my husband, thanks babe) and friends I am taking the plunge. I will be making all kinds of things:  quilts ( of course), camera straps, girls dresses, skirts, pillows, and some other surprises. I am still in the process of making things to get them listed and when I have enough to list them I will be doing a Grand Opening Giveaway here on the blog to spread the word, hopefully you will help me.

I have changed the blog around to add the easy to use tabs bar to help you find all that you need on this site as I expand it. I will be doing alot more tutorial posts so look for those too.

Looking for AD space? I have decide to open Stitches & Scissors up to those who wish to advertise. I am excepting sponsors for both image ads and giveaways. Please email me at: darcisews@gmail.com for rates and info if you are interested.


My talented awesome brother Devon is designing me a logo.  He is a graphic designer and is the perfect person to do it, I have never claimed to be one and I would be terrible at it if I tried :)  I will then get labels printed for all the things that I am making, I can't wait! Hopefully I will be up and running in the next 2 weeks or so. I will keep you posted. 

I sewed this Crochet Roll-up case for Charlotte. Her and I are doing a swap. When I receive the crocheted pillow she is making me I will show you pictures, I am so excited. I used some linen as Charlotte said she loved it and then some of my favorite prints.

The inside of the case lets you store your needles and it has a space for little scissors and some small pockets for embroidery needles.

Then I made my friend Sarah this pillow for her new couch as a thank you for getting our mail for us while we were on vacation. Thanks again Sarah!

Another friend had her little baby boy, Benjamin, and I made one of my favorite baby gifts the Minky Initial Blanket. I used brown minky fabric and one of my favorite tree prints. I used tons of it in this quilt.

Now I am off to sew a quilt for another friend who is having a baby, here is what I have so far.
