Let's talk scissors!

So, I have a thing for (embroidery) scissors. I can't explain it, I just like them. This is some of my collection - after I snapped the pic I immediately thought of two pair that aren't there, but you get the idea. (there are probably some also in kitted projects that, well, I'm not sure where they are! LOL

The close-up is of a fob that says a lot about me - I love scissors! I love chocolate! I love cross-stitch! and I can't see to stitch anymore without an extra pair of eyes!

Your collection is amazing! Now you've given me an idea of what to look for when antique shopping!

Good luck, Carol! None of mine are antique - I'm always on the lookout for them when antique shopping but I've not found any yet.

Did you make that scirros fob? I have seen them but don't know where to buy them or get the materials to make one.
Your blog is wonderful.

Juliann - I made most of the fobs in the photo, but the one in the close-up I didn't make myself. Any needlework shop should have them, or be able to get them. The ones I made, I just got the beads etc., from the jewelry section of the craft store.
