I love scissors. Sharp scissors for cutting fabric. Small scissors for snipping thread. Big, mean, scary kitchen shears for cutting meat. Nicely honed scissors for trimming hair. Dull paper-cutting scissors. Any kind of scissors. Whenever I see a pair of scissors for sale at a store, I drool over them for a minute and then remind myself that I already have too many pairs that I have lost count. I'm going to share a few of my favorites with you.
I bought this tiny pair perhaps four months ago and it is the newest in my collection. The pink won me over. I use them solely for snipping threads and keep them with my embroidery projects. I ♥ these little cuties.
This is my oldest pair. These Ginghers were a gift for Christmas in 1993. They are fabric only scissors. They have never been used on paper and have never been sharpened. They are still the sharpest scissors I own and will remain so.
And these are my pinking shears. There is nothing particularly special or exciting about them, except that I got them at 50% off and up until a year ago when I bought them, I'd never owned pinking shears. They really come in handy.
I have probably 16 other pair, which does seem a bit excessive. But if I weren't so practical, I would probably own a hundred pair of scissors.
