My Dad always said "The right tools for the right job". He was a brick mason but that phrase seems to be appropriate for any job. Here in my studio I have many pairs of scissors. This is only as small selection. I have others, mostly small ones, that I use when traveling with hand sewing.

Don't you dare cut that piece of paper with any of those. Move on to the kitchen where some older pairs are ready for paper, cardboard or even a chicken bone.

Out on my desk is another set of scissors. I think there was a sale at the now defunct RagShop when I got carried away buying these.

I'm not even going to tell you how many pairs of scissors my husband has. How many pairs of scissors are in your house?

I have a bunch of scissors that I used to use for cutting fabric that mysteriously made their way into my kids hands to cut various other things.
I can't tell you how many times I yelled about

Oh, they don't DARE touch my sewing scissors! We have lots of scissors around for everyday stuff-I don't know how many. But I hide the sewing scissors so they aren't tempted.
