I Needed Pinking Shears
There was a project I wanted to make that required pinking shears. So I headed to Joann's with a coupon and bought myself a pair. I still haven't made that stuffed hedgehog, but a pair of pinking shears seems like something a well-stocked sewing room should have...
Since then, I've inherited Great-Grandma's pair, which I know for sure because her name is on the box. She put her name on lots of things...maybe when she was sewing at the senior center... I'm assuming the other pair was Grandma's since they came from her house.
Now that I've got three pairs and a very well stocked sewing room, I'm seeing them at every single thrift shop. Were they that common before -- or was I just not paying attention?
