I remember grade one vividly. One of the brightest memories I have is our teacher explaining in great detail how to hold scissors if you're going to walk across the room OR hand them to someone. Nowadays I'm skeptical that those grade one scissors could in fact inflict an injury but I suppose, you never know. At the time I was riveted at the danger we were being entrusted with.
Perhaps that's when I began to fall in love with scissors. (P.S. Dinky Doo has some super cute scissors. I love the little ones... they're just perfect for adding to present. Ooo and they have some Eiffel Tower ones too! See what I mean?! Scissors = excitement). Which is probably I loved sneaking my mom's pinking sheers for crafting when I was a kid. When I started working full time, after high school, I saved up for a good pair of sewing scissors. I still use them (and love them).
I'm thinking my scissor are probably in need of a good sharpening. Back in June at the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild meeting they invited Andrew from The Focused Edge to talk about sharpening scissors. If you're near Vancouver or in the Fraser Valley and are in need of a good sharpening, like me, you can contact Andrew through his FACEBOOK page... HERE. It lists all his rates and info.
Have you seen Rashida Coleman Hale's SNIP, SNIP! Print? It's so beautiful! I may have just bought it for a certain someone who loves scissors WAY, WAY, WAY more than me. And I like scissors Aaaa lot BUT this person takes it to a WHOLE new level.
Ooo! AND have you seen Lindsey Neill's @penandpaperpatterns new block of the month, SEWOLOGY? Have a look at those scissors!!! You can find it on Craftsy, HERE, among her other A-maze-ZING patterns. Gah! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
RECOMMENDED FOR YOUR PLAYLIST: Now this is a bit of a twist. I was trying to think of a song about scissors and I discovered SCISSOR SISTERS. They're a bit disco-y but modern. Check out one of their performances on the Graham Norton Show, HERE. Stay for the the chat after, the bird impression is well worth it!
