Playing with Scissors

Playing with scissors...something mom said to never do unless they were those blunt ends ones that barely even cut paper! Well, Nina is having a giveaway and she is encouraging us to play with our scissors!
Her giveaway is gorgeous! It includes this box, cool scissors with coordinating scissor fob! It's very generous. The condition of the giveaway is to leave a comment on her blog here and for an extra entry in her giveaway, you are to post a picture of your scissor collection with a link back to her blog.
Above is my meager scissor collection. I threw in my fabric shears just to beef up the picture a little. The Dovo's on the left are my *at home* scissors dressed with a lovely fob CarolR made for QFRR members (thanks Carol!). The light blue scissors are my travel around pair for when I cart projects about to work. And the antiquey ones on the right are all for show. This meager showing makes me realize I need more cool scissors! You can play with scissors too...just comment on Nina's blog by April 30th!

Oooo there are some lovely scissors in blogland - I cannot resist just another pair - it's catching too and I think you've got it!

Now why didn't I stitch myself a QFRR fob?

I am lovin' the fabric shears! And, I, too am feeling better to know that my meager scissor collection is "ok". Until I started reading blogs, I thought scissors were "just" used to cut...and my best ones were the little fold up ones that allowed me to carryon scissors on the airplanes when I flew. Now I stand corrected - scissors are a work of art. Unfortunately, due to the economy, collecting scissors might just have to wait a while! Take care!

I admit it, I'm a scissors junkie. Once you go down that dark path there is no turning back. The worst part is that I don't want to use most of them as I am "collecting" them, lol. Before the economy went south I would try to buy 2 of every 4" gingher, one to keep in the nice box and one to use! It's a sickness ;)
