No Me Impune Lacessit

In the pantheon of dubious truisms, one of the most pernicious must be “It’s a poor workman who blames his tools”. I have never heard this said in any environment where the tools provided weren’t complete crap.

A very funny and very true post from Susannah at Cargo Cult Craft. Particularly about the scissors. Touch my sewing scissors and you die.

ooo, that saying used to make me so mad when trying to use a dull knife or bent screw driver or messed up sewing machine.

Also, no one touches my sewing shears, either.

Thanks for the link. I'll check her out - in a nice way. ;)

My sister & I both have Gingher shears. Both are labeled as to0 who owns which ones. We live together. We NEVER touch the other's scissors unless we have a death wish. NEVER. Even if my life could be saved by touching, she'd end it for touching.
