Yesterday I went to the estate sale of a fiber artist. I didn't go too crazy, I picked up a few cuts of silk that will make for great linings if not blouses. What I'm really pleased with are these scissors - Wiss thread clips, 4.5" Clover patchwork scissors, and 9" Gingher bent trimmers - $1 each. I found these online retailing for at least $20 a piece. I'll stash these all over my sewing room so I always have scissors within arm's reach.
