Knitters and quilters can be divided into two groups:
namely those who stash and those who don't
It is a fact generally acknowledged that I very much belong to the first camp
My quilt stash requires its own room
and while the wool and fibre stash is slightly more modest, it is still threatening to break out of the good-sized wardrobe that houses it
I own several sewing machines, more than one spinning wheel, dozens of knitting needles and a substantial collection of scissors.
So I was a bit mortified to realise that my darling daughter was making do with a pair of supercheap plastic handled embroidery scissors.
Obviously that situation could be, and should be, easily remedied
and so it was
... a bit of playing with fabric and threads and one of those cute little flexi-frames ensured that her new scissors didn't go to their new home naked
and to make sure that they didn't get lonely, I made them some little friends
