Can you find your scissors?

Can I find all of my supplies? I try to remember to put everything back in the same place when I'm finished using it. You would think this system would work. But I get in a hurry and think that I will just leave it out and then put it away next time. I then proceed to walk away and begin something else.

The next time I need the supplies....can I remember where I left them? No, I can't. I run upstairs...look in the living room, thinking maybe I was watching TV while working. But no...wrong room. I check the bedrooms, run back upstairs to look again, look in the studio and finally the last place in the world I look....the dining room, there it is. I bet I waste more time looking for things than I spend working.

Scissors are the hardest things for me to keep in place. I told my husband, "People are coming into our house at night and stealing my scissors." I don't think he believed me.

Between me and the kids there was no hope to ever find a pair. Only now, after my kids have left the nest am I beginning to find some of them. They might be dull....but at least I can hack things apart.

But never fear....no need to be like me. I have 4 scissor bags to give away.

Moda fabrics made these cute canvas bags. You can tell what they are for just by looking at the picture. I got one for me, one for Barb and some for you too. 4 lucky winners will be drawn.

You know the drill! Leave a note in the comment section and the bag could be yours. You don't have to leave a long comment either....just the word "scissors" will do. But if you have words of wisdom for me that's great too. I can use all the wisdom I can get. Deadline July 9th. Good luck! Hope you can find some scissors to put into this bag!

It's a stitching day for me. One of those where you sit in a chair all day and wish you had something great to eat....Unfortunately the things that sound good are all high calorie. Don't you wish you craved carrot sticks and celery?

Until later dear friends!

  1. Oh my gosh! How cute!!

    I had that same problem once... my scissors went missing. I never did find them, even when we moved. I had to go and buy a brand new pair (aw shucks). I do believe there are scissor fairies or elves who take them at night. A good pair of scissors is a coveted item!

  2. Oh, love the bag! Please include me in your giveaway! I only have a limited supply of scissors so I always know where I leave them. Needles though...that's another thing. I lose those all the time.
    Happy stitching!

  3. Don't I wish I could crave carrots & celery??? Are you nuts! Chocolate is soooooo much better. A couple of houses back (we've made 10 corporate moves) I had a sewing room with a lock on the door just so the kids couldn't take off with scissors and other goodies. Now I can always find my scissors........yeah!

  4. Alma, I don't even want to tell you how many pair of scissors I have and I can't begin to tell you where they all are either! A bag would be so "handy" to place them in, then I would only need to keep up with the bag!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yes, someone does come in the house to steal scissors. And only the expensive ones. The ones with a broken tip and cracked handle always seem to be there waiting for me....sigh. So I broke the bank and bought a set of really cool Dovo scissors that are in a zippered case and I keep them in a project bag that goes with me everywhere. So far so good. Oh and I also threatened and I really mean PROMISED to harm someone if the scissors were disturbed!
    Love the Moda bag...of course I need one!

  6. Great bag - I addressed the scissor fairies by buying multiple pairs of scissors every time I had a 50% off coupon for Joann's... right now, I can see 5 pairs - no fairies lately!

  7. My scissors are magical. They disappear right in front of my eyes. I am thinking of signing up for magic classes so I can learn the spell to get them to come back again

  8. I love the scissor bag. I haven't lost any scissors, maybe it's because I have so many, but not enough! LOL!

  10. I tell my husband all the time that scissors need a built in monitor like the telephone, when you lose them, just push the find me button and they will beep. I'm thinking of applying for a patent for my idea, what do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I like that little bag. Very cute.

    I told my son when he was a little boy to never use my scissors. He has done well. I must have scared him with "the look"

    ReplyDelete
  12. Please include me in the giveaway, I NEED the bag--I have an awesome pair of discontinued little Gingher enamel scissors which my kids are always taking, but I know they will never think of looking in a bag marked "scissors"...

  13. What a cute bag for scissors!
    I sometime feel like I need to implant a good magnet somewhere in my body to collect my scissors instantly!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh another drawing! woo hoo! and how cute is that scissor bag! I lost a few pair a while ago and couldn't for the life of me figure out what had happened to them, until I was cleaning the couch .. 4 pair had slide down to the floor between my recliner and the next seat! lol .. was a great find :)

    I have friends that use old flower frogs for displaying/storing their scissors .. might be right up your ally :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have my son trained to ask for the "fabric" scissors or my regular scissors. He knows that the fabric scissors have to be placed back into the sleeve for protection. My husband, on the other hand, takes any of my scissors to cut his nails, etc. He knows to hide from me because I usually end up screaming and telling him how expensive they were. Some people just don't get it. LOL.

  16. Oh, the bag is so cute! Please include me in your "scissors" giveaway!

    Thank you!

  17. I love scissors!! I think I have more scissors than thimbles!! My mother loved scissors and passed that passion on to me and my sisters!! Have a wonderful stitch day. I'm having one too!

    ReplyDelete
  18. This is so funny. I can't tell you how many pairs I have bought because I couldn't find the NEW PAIR I just had! Surely, a person my age (49) would put them in the same place...KNOWING...that it seems to be a problem over the years! Big smile...I guess we get going so fast that we forget where we set them down. I even use a sharpie marker and write "SEWING ROOM"...SO no one would dare take them out of the room! But I lose them in the sewing room!
    Oh my!

  19. Cute bag!!! Wonder WHICH scissors I'd keep in it??? Hmmmmmm . . . .

    ReplyDelete
  20. That is one great looking scissor bag - please enter me in your drawing. Sometimes if I misplace a pair they stay gone for days - almost as if someone is playing a trick on me...then they just appear again as if from the air - a bag would sure help!!

    thx - edgar

  21. We should start a Club! I have many pair of scissors and sometimes can't find even one. I don't have a solution to the problem!

    My favorite scissors for rug hooking always go missing! Probably with my readers!

  28. What a CUTE bag! I would love to win one. Maybe if I left it open in my sewing room overnight, my wayward scissors would fine their way to it and I would know where they all are. :-) Very, very cute!

  32. What a great blog you have...I read it always!!! Love the scissor bag, too!! Linda

  33. Unlike you Alma, I don't seem to have a problem with scissors - my missing essential is my rotary cutter. I had so much trouble locating the first cutter I bought, I eventually bought another one only to find the first cutter within an hour of bringing the new one home.
    Of course, since then BOTH have disappeared. I remember when I last used a cutter, telling my sons to remember where I was putting it when finished. LOL Their memory is as bad as mine! It's not essential to them, so they didn't take notice. Now I can't find either one.
    I need to purchase another pair of dressmaking scissors though, broke the handle of my last pair. I do have 3 embroidery scissors, which rotate through projects - they all have fobs on them and I look for the fobs before the scissors.

  34. Scissors are like shoes.....you can never have too many!

  45. What a cute bag! I have problems losing my scissors and needles.
    Do I have scissor fobs and needlebooks and pincushions to help me keep all those things in sight? Yes, do I happen to use them? No! Go Figure. Thanks for the giveaway. Hope I win.

  46. I would love to be entered into your contest. I only have one pair of scissors so a bag would help alot.

  47. I have not seen these little bags before and would love to enter the drawing for a chance to win one.
    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  48. My solution is that you can never have too many scissors. There are some in a basket on the table, a pair on the arm of the sofa, several pair in the travel stitching bag.......well you get the drift. Oh, and there is always a new pair that I am sure to be drooling over! I know they will be mine soon!

  50. I would love to win a scissor pouch. My husband always finds my (scissors in the couch) and has a fit because he thinks he will hurt himself. I think a bag might protect him! Thanks a bunch. Terry

  51. Oh, I love the scissor bag. I do have a flower frog that I use for smaller scissors, but I'm forever putting my larger scissors who knows where! They end up all over the house. I can't tell you how many pairs of scissors I've had to buy because they just didn't have a decent home. Then later they show up under fabric, under a chair, in a drawer. I chastise my husband for leaving his hammers and measuring tapes all over the house and then I do the same with my scissors! Oh, then there is the kid factor too - they use the sewing scissors for cutting paper. They really need a good home - that cute bag would do it!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Great giveaway! Such cute material.

  53. That bag is adorable. Would love to win. =)

  54. Scissors? I love scissors and have collected way too many. There are just so many irresistible sizes and shapes and colors. I would love a bag for the current favorite pair.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think the only answer is to have lots of them. I pick up cheap very sharp embroidery scissors whenever I see them and have them in all my sewing spots that way I can always find them (multiples).

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think I have a pair of scissors on every flat surface of my house! Would love to win the bag. Thanks. Kathie L.

  58. This bag is AWESOME! And a must have for a scissor nut like myself!!!

  59. I wish carrots and celery tasted like a Big Mac and french fries. I would eat carrots and celery every day if that were the case. Sorry about the scissors. I think there is a scissor fairy just like there is a sock fairy. Thanks for the giveaway. Have a great day.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Cute bag! I solved the lost scissors problem by buying more scissors. Not a good solution. Someone steals them too.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Leave the scissors with the chocolate and if that doesn't work, just buy another pair!

  63. I never lose my scissors. I have for them a fine wooden box. But I have two daughters. For any reason my scissors are necessary to them. To cut out a picture, to cut a bang and even to make manicure! My girls never put scissors back. I find them in different places. Once it was CD-ROM of my computer... I hope, this fine scissor bag will be the best "house" for my scissors!
    Thank you, Alma and happy stitching!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I ended up putting leash/ribbon on on scissors and tying it to the arm of my sewing chair. To date that is the only scissors I have managed not to loose (though I have to admit the movers looked at me really strange when they saw it!)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love the scissor bag! I am always losing my scissors...especially down the side of the couch, on the floor. I never know where they are going to turn up. Maybe a bag would help me keep track of them. Thanks for the giveaway.

  68. I would live a scissor bag. Please include me.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Scissors -- my solution is to have multiple pairs in different places. Although they seem to migrate and I can either find several or none. Another lifesaver is having inherited a couple dozen kid's Fiskars from times that a friend and I led children's art projects at our museum's Family Days. They will take care of a lot of things, and the great thing is that you can throw one into each project bag you've got going. But this scissors bag would be a wonderful addition -- a place to keep those special scissors -- the stork scissors that were a gift, etc. -- and the one-of-a-kinds.

  82. Hi Alma, I try to have a pair of scissors with each project, but alas the scissor stealing fairies take mine too.

    ReplyDelete
  83. My only solution to this problem was to buy more scissors. I have them everywhere, each room has a pair that belongs in that room, know by color, shape, size, or even labeled. Then each stitching bag usual has it's on pair, a pair for the tool bag I grab for away stitching, you get it. The more the merrier. Although I do have a couple of favorites that get special care.
    Would love a chance at the Moda scissor bag. Thanks for thinking of us. CJ ok;-)

    ReplyDelete
  84. For starters, I try to put some kind of scissor fob on each pair. When I work on a project, I have one of those rattan plates that are used to hold a paper plate at a picnic. Anyhow, that rattan plate holds any of my "stuff" like thread/scissors/pincushion and I ALWAYS put my "stuff" back on the plate as I use it. Sometimes I use a basket instead. It helps to keep everything in one spot and is easy to transport. I sit the plate right on my project usually! Thanks for the chance to enter your contest! Your scissor bags are really cute!

    I regularly check your website, and have very much enjoyed it! I am a great collector of "bags", and have a special place I keep them - sometimes I even put things into them -grin-! I keep a small book of sayings and words of wisdom I've gathered here and there, and will share one that might give you a giggle - "dijon-vu" the feeling that you've tasted this mustard before...

  97. Love the scissor bag, please enter me in your giveaway. I am one of those that thinks I will always know where I left them last, you know in the supply bag with the last project stitched...right!!! Ha Ha, I hear you chuckling. Problem is...where did I leave the bag?

  104. Your blog has become my favorite!

    You always find something I can relate to either as a stitcher, an eater, a forgetful person, or just part of the mess of humanity.

    Related to looking for things, my Grandmother always beleived in the hereafter...she would go in a room looking for something and forget what it was she was looking for... always wondering what am I here after.

  105. Losing scissors is a favorite topic of my stitch group. One lady was always losing hers. She sat on a couch that had spaces between the cushions. We always had to tell her to check the "crack". Now that is our only answer when someone loses their scissors.
    Very nice of you to give away bags to keep our scissors in.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Wonderful idea! And I am with you. I crocheted a string and hung my scissors around my neck.... but now I lost that too! lol.

  112. I have scissors tucked away all over my house. I have them in every room in small wooden boxes, tied to candlesticks, but I still have to hunt for a pair when I sit down to stitch. I think I have a scissor gremlin in my house.

  113. Oh yes! I could make good use of that scissors bag. I am constantly losing mine too. You think this bag will really help or will we misplace that as well???

  114. If I craved raw carrots sticks and celery I'd know I'd gone over some edge that I never wanted to even approach - be very glad that you want something that tastes GOOD! I don't have too many problems finding my scissors, but my snips just keep getting lost under the piles that I create by the sewing machine. I think I need to put them on a lariat...;o)

  127. Loosing my scissors is a daily occurrence. I finally crocheted a string on the end making it easier to find them when I reach in the bag. I used to just have a string around them and wear them around my neck. The bag is adorable. Maybe it could help.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I never know where my scissors are, but I have so many pairs that I always find one. Not always the one I had in mind, but usually it's OK. Sometimes I spend so much time looking for them that I don't have time to actually DO what I needed them for...
    I love bags, too, and this one is very cute !

  137. I'm usually pretty good with where my scissors are, but it's those darn pesky quilting pins that seem to find their way off of my sewing table.

    Cute little bag!

  145. I have five kids and buy them scissors every year for school. Wouldn't you think that would mean there'd be dozens of scissors floating around my house? I'm lucky if I can find one!

    ReplyDelete
  146. I love that idea. I have so many scissors it's not hard to find a pair but I think they would be great in one pouch.

  153. It's just amazing how many things cease to disappear when children fly the nest. Scissors, safety pins, food, money (I seem to have more now anyway) and ice cream, it seems to stay in the freezer waiting for me now, yum.

  158. What a great idea, so much better than the plastic zippy bag I keep my scissors in. They are now feeling rather neglected

    ReplyDelete
  159. This bag is so cute! What a good idea! It looks better than the plastic bag they sell with scissors. Love to be in the draw. Thanks for this giveaway and for the beautiful free quilt pattern!
    Have a nice stitching day! Hugs from France!

  160. that's too funny Alma, I could just imagine you running through the house hunting down some scissors. I always blame Miss Murphy (my cat) when something is missing. Greatest part: she doesn't object to be named the culprit. As long as she gets her cat food, she's one happy furball.
    As for the bag, I'd love to get one.

  161. A good pair of scissors is a quilters best friend.

  166. Words of wisdom - now let me think!!

    I've been giving missing scissors quite a bit of thought recently and the only thing i can come up with is attaching my scissors to my mobile (cell) phone like a phone fob then, everytime my scissors are missing I can ring my phone like I do when that's missing and...lo and behold, both phone and scissors will give themselves away - talking of giveaways, I'd love to be entered for this pretty bag giveaway then I can keep both my phone and my scissors safe..haha!
    Thanks again for your generous and unusual contests.
    Warm wishes Angela

  167. Hi,
    The bag is cool, but then any bag is cool to me.
    I have scissors in each room: my living room where I sit and applique and the sewing room. I finally got a holder for my bigger ones and keep a pair at my sewing machine.
    Love your fabrics and books.

  168. For every needlework i use a basket. In it scissors and a couple of needles. And the work and pattern of course.
    Doing so i'm pretty sure where my scissors are :-)

  169. Wouldn't it be simplest if you had two pairs for every room? (Shears and embroidery) With the lovely scissors available you could certainly match every room in the house!

    ReplyDelete
  170. Love that bag! How wonderful - definately something I need, with 5 kids. My scissors don't have a chance around here!! Hugs, Lisa

  171. What a cute scissors bag! Hopefully it will be much easier to find than just the scissors!

  172. You know I little bags almost as much as I like scissors! Best, Tamara

  173. What a great idea!
    I only have one pair of scissors I use for stitching so the scissor-stealing gnomes best stay clear of my house.
    Thank you for including me in your drawing...I enjoy reading your blog very much.

  174. Good morning, and what a wonderful day it's going to be after seeing your scissors bags. I have many pairs of scissors, too many to count actually, and whenever I get another pair, I get looks like 'don't you have enough already' - but does anyone need a reason to buy more items for stitching?

    Hope that everyone has a great day.

  176. I really like the scissors bag...my scissors seem to have a need to take a vacation from me also. Please enter me in your drawing. thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  177. Wow, this has been a popular post! Scissors are also something that run away from me and hide. Needles used to be a problem but now I have about a zillion pincushions, so at least the needles can find their way to a pincushion (of course, then it's up to me to find said pincushion, but no system is perfect!). I'd love to be included in the drawing, and thanks for offering these fun opportunities!

  178. I think if I ever found all my scissors I'd faint at the number that I had....they end up in project bags, on tables, in tote bags,etc....love the scissor bag! maybe it would help me round them up!

  184. I finally broke down and bought duplicate scissors for several of my usual sewing spots. But do you think that made any difference in the missing scissors situation? Not much!
    I would love to be included in your drawing. What a fabulous little bag!
