I was upstairs a few minutes ago attaching the binding to a wall hanging. I basted the sleeve in place and cut the threads at both ends with this pair of scissors. I started stitching the binding into place. I stopped after a few inches and cut off the thread tails with this pair of scissors. I continued on around the quilt and when I got back around to the beginning and stopped I reached for the scissors to cut the threads again. Gone. Can't find them anywhere. I looked all over my sewing table, under the table and chair, in the trash can. I looked everywhere. How can a pair of 8" scissors with bright orange handles vanish while I'm sitting there? It had been less than five minutes since I last used them. I never moved from the chair. The door was shut and no one else (including cats) was in the room with me. I finally gave up looking and came downstairs to get another pair of scissors. I really thought these would have mysteriously returned while I was gone. Nope. Still gone. If you should see them wandering around somewhere would you please tell them to come home? They are missed.
