I have been meaning to post a photo of something that I found lurking in the bottom of DH's tool box.
These were his mother's needlework scissors - goodness only knows why they were in his toolbox - men!
Anyway, I have retrieved them, given them a new home in my sewing box and they are lovely to use. I need to buy some very fine sandpaper. I'm going to try to see if I can get them back to what they used to be.
