Scissors

 I think I missed posting a pic of these when I received them.  A wonderful friend gave them to me.  And if she hadn't already been a good friend she certainly would have been after a gift like this!  Scissors are my favorite symbol of sewing.  A vintage 'bust' is right up there close, but I really like my growing collection of scissors.
For Christmas I got these.  Best scissors I've had in a long time!  A seamstress is only as good as her tools:)

  Gingher.  My fav.

 10" long!  They can do some serious cutting let me tell you.  I've tried them out!
 They look rather gold-ish in the photo but they aren't.  They are silver.
Here they are beside the regular sized 8" scissors.  Love these things!!  Now I'm wanting the 12" pair.

I LOVE my Gingher scissors. My husband bought the 8" shears for my birthday. This after 35 years of less-than-sharp scissors.

I am in love.

Hi, just found your wonderful blog! I love collecting scissors as well, although I don't have that many. My most cherished ones are the ones that belonged to my grandmother. So loved visiting here! blessings,Kathleen

My Mother had scissors just like these. They cut EVERYTHING and although she has passed away many years now I still think of her everytime I use them.
