So I was rather put out when I read that we have to take a pair of Tim Holtz Tonic Scissors with us to our play date in February. You will have gathered by now that I am a huge fan of the Lord of All Things Holtziness and all his fabulous products which are top quality but why would I need to invest in another pair of scissors when I have loads of fabulous scissors already and was quite vocal about the fact that they can't possibly be better than Fiskars.
And then a little pressie arrived at the cubbyhole from the lovely Jacqui at Simply Create......"my contribution for your little trip away with TH"......
how kind was that and of course I had to dive in and try them.....well I am now eating my hat....my words and a great big slice of humble pie....back pedalling like crazy and trying to dig myself out of this huge hole....in other words I was wrong and am taking back everything I said.....they are not fabulous....they are absolutely amazing....LOVE the big soft cushioned handles which make them so comfortable to hold....LOVE the razor sharp serrated blades ...LOVE the very fine tip for precision cutting. These boys are definitely the creme de la creme and I never ever thought in the month of Sundays I would be waxing lyrical about any other scissors...in fact it left me with a bit of a dilemma....how could I abandon my trusty Fiskars after years of faithful service...so the new boys on the block have joined the Fiskars Scissors Family and I hope they will all live happily together ever after.
I am having a night out tonight....abandoning the cubbyhole for some fun at Simply Create and hopefully I will be making this cute little tote.....
Anne at her "Totally Handy" Workshop. Perhaps I should have mentioned to Anne that it's years since I have done any serious sewing and that the last time I attempted to run up some kitchen curtains they somehow ended up stitched to my sweater....could be an interesting night but I bet it will be lots of fun. I think there may be one or two places left so if you want to come along.....ring the shop on 019755 64010 to book a place....starts 7.00pm....just make sure you sit as far away from me as possible or we may end up having emergency surgery with scissors to separate us.
Catch up with you all later for Day 4 of Inspired By You.....wonder what Jill has up her sleeve today. I do believe that The Furry Boy will be back tomorrow bright and early with another little goodie give-away.
