As I am working on my hardanger doily, I am thinking about the old adage about the right tool for the job. With hardanger you have to have really sharp, short pointed scissors. Recently I had the opportunity to purchase a lovely pair of Ginghers that are ideal.

These scissors are a true work of art. They are the Gingher Pewter scissors. On Columbus Day had a 50% off coupon for any item on the site. These gorgeous scissors are regularly $52. With my coupon they were only $26. They are so delicate looking and so beautiful. Gingher really makes a quality product.

My Lori Birmingham doily is turning out to be a quick stitch. It will look so pretty with the matching basket on it. Now I have to find a place in the house to put it. I will post a photo as soon as it is all done.

Those are pretty! I have some of the patterned ones, but I love those. I am going to treat myself one of these days...why can't my Joann have any good ones?! LOL

Hi Suzanne!

Guess what?! The scissors are available on their website That is where I got mine. My nearest Joann store is 85miles away in San Jose otherwise. I get up that way maybe once or twice a year.
