As you may know, I love social media. I have my facebook page, my personal fb account, a Goodread account, a yelp account, an instagram account and a twitter account. I am mainly on Facebook but I jump around on the other accounts as well. It is surprising how each has added to my real life. On Twitter I recently received the following message.
Hi Kathy, I recently found your blogs and they are fantastic! I would love to send you a pair of our scissors. e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
I emailed them back and said, sure! I told them that if I liked them, I would certainly mention them in my blog and if I didn't, I wouldn't.
What I initially liked was the big handles. Most of the time if there are smaller blades, there are smaller places for your hands. And really why is that? My hands don't shrink!
I felt like the smaller blade gave me good control so I used them when I was cutting out small objects. I am doing that quite a bit lately with my Dragons quilts.
I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked these Havels scissors. They make a terrific addition to my family of scissors I have. Would I give up my shears? No way!
But there is definitely room on my sewing table for a useful new tool. I didn't purchase mine but I googled them and found one place they are sold is Amazon. Of course!
My family of scissors is definitely growing! Some are favorites and used all the time. Others are specialty scissors and used only when I cut batting, for example. But I like them all for different reasons. And yes, I need 3 pair of Gingher shears!
