scissors,scissors and more scissors

I get teased by my friends about how many pairs of scissors
I own. A friend of mine posted her scissors on her blog and I started thinking if I put all my scissors on the table I don't think I could get them all in one shot to take a photo. I am a hairdresser so I have several pairs of hair cutting shears and thinning shears. I am a nail tech so I have 5 pairs of small scissors I use to cut fiberglass & silk wraps. I groom my own dogs so more scissors. I love to cook so I have several pairs of  kitchen shears. I scrapbook so that is about 36 pairs of scissors (all different design blades), I garden so more scissors and shears. Stained glass requires special scissors that trim a little extra sliver off your pattern to allow room for the foil and solder. Have scissors in my giftwrap trunk and at my desk and in the garage and floral design scissors too. OK so maybe I do have a lot of scissors but I use them all!! Here is a shot of just my sewing scissors...

Awaiting the arrival of Pellon's Legacy line

New line of batting to make samples from is on its way! Pellon's Legacy Line- Went and bought more muslin today in preparation. I bought all the ones they carry in JoAnn's from the line and made made those samples up quick like a bunny to take with me tonight to share with the Piecemakers Quilt Guild, but they didn't have the cottons or cotton blends or bamboo. I haven't forgotten I promised you a list of favorites I just want to get as many different brands as possible tested before I compile that list.
Happy Stitchin'!
