Hubby got a new knife sharpener for Christmas. He's had different knife sharpeners before -- lots of them -- but this is supposed to be the ultimate knife sharpener and do everything up to and including the blades for the lawn mower.
Lawn mower blades don't make my priority list. Kitchen knives make the list if I'm making dinner and having trouble cutting something. What I've been wondering about is these --
Remember the scissors I let my husband use to trim the floor mats for his new truck? The plan was always to see if he could sharpen them for me. After meeting up with his new toy, they're sharp enough to cut fabric again.
I'd been wondering about that for a while. When I first started quilting, I read the advice to get cheap sewing shears with a coupon and replace them whenever they get too dull. That's what I've been doing for the past decade -- including some scissors that got switched over to paper duty a little too early and some that I tried to cut fabric with for way too long.
Now I want to find every pair of scissors in the house and have them ready and waiting for the next time Hubby pulls out his new toy.
Maybe it's time to start thinking about finding a nice pair.
