Blogging the alphabet ~ S


Scissors can be dangerous in the wrong hands. The wrong scissors in the right hands can lead to unwanted injury too. Blunt scissors at times can prove to be more dangerous than their sharp equivalents.

I have dangerous implements, in this case scissors, all over my house.

I use them for:

  1. Hair
  2. Nails
  3. Miscellaneous
  4. Kitchen shears
  5. Needlework (4)
  6. Papercraft
  7. Wallpaper scissors
  8. Pinking shears

From left: Hair, nails, misc household, kitchen shears, embroidery, needlework/sewing, canvas wool work and dressmakers scissors. The little rectangular object with two slits is a scissors sharpener.

Items 6, 7 & 8 are missing from the above photo. The wall paper scissors lives in the garage with another all purpose pair in the toolbox.

These have the fancy name of Paper Edgers

I do have a pinking shears (they were the inspiration for this post), but I cannot find them at the moment. My workroom in in need of a clear out I think! 🙁 Oh well, we are forecast plenty of rain this week so I have no excuse.

N.B. Never use a Dressmakers scissors to cut paper or you will blunt the blades.
