I adore my gingher leopard spot scissors
and my needle case, made for me by Rachel Nelson Smith (I made her socks with beads in the cuff, hot pink)
and my cupcake spoon, acquired in Tucson last year, cupcake by Ellie Mac
and my pincushion, scrap collector
and my new gram scale....great for weighing beads. It's so adorable, compact, weighs to the tenth of a gram and if you enter the price per unit it calculates the cost of the weighed item. I don't need that feature, but it's nice that it's there.
I love a tool that is both functional and attractive. It makes the work so much more visually stimulating, and I'm all about the visual.
