Hmmm. I’m not sure what the collective noun is (or ought to be) for scissors. I throw this question open to you readers (and hope dearly for an answer from Scrapiana & her dictionary of everything).
I went to the haberdashery wholesalers this afternoon, which I realised was a mere 15 minutes walk from the studio, mainly along the canal. The canal is charming in the sun and pretty grim the rest of the time. Today was sunny which always helps to catch the sparkle of the shopping trolleys lurking at the bottom of the water. Ahh. City living at it’s finest.
Anyway, I was talking of another type of metal ware, that of scissors. The 24 pairs of scissors I bought (14 large, 9 small/medium, one pinking) are not very interesting at all, they merely allow me to run textile classes without having to risk my own sharps in the fray.
So instead I show you printed scissors, from the studio of my friend Teresa of Teresa Green, just a few miles further up that same stretch of canal.
This could easily be the epitome of the sewing themed accessories. Although I could do with scissors on a skirt. Hmm. I sense a Clothkits collaboration… could I persuade them?
Oh, they aren’t on the website. I bought it at Origin the other week. Must be new. Never fear, she is at shows all over the place in the next few weeks, have a look at the list here, including the Great Northern this weekend and Lustre in a couple of weeks. Hurrah!
