They are really easy to use and my hands don't get tired.

    Regarding the sewing box, my fav sewing box is a tackle box! I have a smaller tackle box so the inside is not a huge vast cavern. :-) They are relatively inexpensive, have lots of smaller coompartments and come in lots of sizes. Joanns does have "tackle" boxes for sewing and other crafts, but they are a lot more expensive and don't seem to have the room.

    You are a wonderful hubby!

    I keep thinking about the tackle box. That is a great idea. When she gets back I'm going to take her to Ray's Sport Shop.
    They have a wide varity of fishing equiptment.

    That spring action sissors sounds good also.
    I might just do that.

    Thanks for the ideas, all are good.

    Are you gonna just take her to the store without telling her why? Show her the tackle boxes and ask her to pick one out? I'd love to see the baffled look on her face, then one when she realized why! :mrgreen:

    I won't tell her why. We have shoped their before.
    She will think we are shoping for cloths or presents for the kids.
