New tools for me

I've had these beauties for a couple of weeks, but hadn't managed to take a photo.

Since I purchased my embroidery module and starting doing more applique, I really wanted a pair of duckbill applique scissors. Look, if I lived in Houston, I would have probably stolen my mother's. But that just wasn't possible, so I had to buy my own. They had to be like mum's, so they are Gingher. They were awesome to use as I tried them out with that last batch of embroideries.

Then there was the problem of my bum Mundial embroidery scissors which I mainly used for trimming threads. Those dodgy things would continually lock up. The screw would just tighten itself with use, and the blades wouldn't move. So I thought I needed a pair of thread snips too.

I have to thank my dealer for hooking me up with these lovelies. Lisa doesn't stock them in the shop, but ordered them in for me.
