Last week I shared how much I love my newest scissors from Karen Kay Buckley. I ordered the small and large size last spring. Confession: I am being tempted to add the medium size to my collection.
The small ones traveled with me this summer on our journey around the western states. I kept these in my little travel bag, another one of Karen's items that I love, which keeps all of my applique supplies neat, organized, and protected. The scissors come with a little protective cover that actually "snaps" into place so I never had an issue with it falling off. Let me tell you, you need that cover as the tips of these little scissors are very, very sharp. I mainly used them for snipping threads and making little cuts as I appliqued my pieces in place. The pair they replaced were about the same size, but the handles did not give me much room to slip my fingers in. These are generously sized for comfort as you cut.
The larger scissors are the ones I bragged about the other day when I shared the Wildflower Quilt I am working on. I mentioned that the handles were quite comfortable in part because they are softer than anything else I have. Notice in the photos below how they "squish."
I hope you can see in the following photos why I like the blade covers so much. If you look closely there is a little ridge that enables the cover to snap into place.
Now for the fun part. Through the generosity of Karen Kay Buckley one lucky reader of this blog will win a pair of her Perfect Scissors for their very own. All you have to do is leave me a comment in which you answer two questions:
1-Piecing, Applique, or Both
2-How many UFO's are floating around your quilt space.
Bonus: Invite your friends and ask them to leave your name in their comments. This will earn you an extra entry.
I would also love to visit your blog if you have one so be sure and share a link when you comment. (This does not earn you any extra entries.)
Due to shipping restrictions I have to limit this sweepstake to residents of the United States.
The winning name will be drawn from all available entries and announced on Thursday September 25th. The winner will be contacted by email.
(Again, I am in now way associated with Karen Kay Buckley, I have simply fallen in love with her products and want to share with you the things that make my quilting life better.)
Taking life a stitch at a time,
