Pinkers!

Pinking shears have fascinated me since I was a kid. I realize that they are practical for sewing purposes. But for other purposes they are so cool -- paper, gift wrap, labels -- I could go on and on.

Ok, so let me bask in the glow about them a little for just a moment. I went to a craft store with a 40% off coupon and got a great deal on these deluxe pinking shears. You can tell by the color of the handles what brand they are. They are the large pair with the uber comfort handles. Did I mention how excited I am to have these?

I will give them a good home and be eternally grateful that they will not bruise my hands the way other non-luxe scissors have in the past. I am truly thankful to have them! What tools are you delighted to have?

I would do a happy dance but I have told not to run with scissors. :)

I love pinking shears! I got some a few years ago and used them non stop... they don't work properly now. I think its about time I got them sharpened! (If that's possible with pinking shears?)

I love pinking shears and hardly ever use them for fabric too.

They do look very comfy to use. Scoring new materials & tools at a bargain price is always fun! Enjoy! :)

Pinking shears bring me back to childhood too when my mom would sew. I was fascinated with them.

I need to get some of those. I know I'd find 101 uses for them.
