SBQ 7/27/06 and 8/3/06

Today's SBQ was suggested by Von and is:

Many of us have a few pairs of embroidery scissors and some even have a "collection". How many pairs of scissors do you have? Feel free to share a photo of your favorite pair or pairs with us:

I have 3 pairs of embroidery scissors. The pair with the turquoise tassel are Gingher's. They are called Sophia. They are excellent scissors and very sharp. I think Gingher's are some of the best around. The gunmetal tinted pair are by Cougar Stahlwarenfabrik. I picked these up from the Silver Needle in Tulsa. I use these quite a bit-they are inexpensive and not to bad. The scissor fob is by Monsterbubbles scissor candy collection and I really love it. The third pair is by Dinky Dyes and I bought them because I found them cute-but I hate them and only will use in a pinch. They were inexpensive as well-but the Cougar pair is better.

Today's SBQ was suggested by Carol
and is: Do you have a favorite needlework tool that you like to work with? What is it and why do you like using it?

In answer to this question, I have no favorite needleworking tool. I do have a stand by K's Creations, that I use infrequently to hold Q-snaps or a pattern. I would definitely not call it my favorite.
