    Yesterday I found my mom cutting the tops off of Icee popsicles with MY good sewing scissors. Couldn't find the other 800 scissors in the house so she goes into my room and takes mine!

    Certainly nowhere near as bad as the time when I found my ex's step dad using them to cut off the callouses off his feet (I threw that pair away!). But still!

    I'm positive I'm not the only one who has caught someone else using the good sewing scissors for anything other than sewing. What's the worst way you've seen your good scissors being mistreated or are there people in your house who can't get it in their head that those are meant for your quilting/sewing projects and nothing else?

    My Dad used to cut my hair with Mom's good scissors. He said they were the best so that is why he used them. Mom quit sewing soon after. :)

    When my little ones were, well, little, they were into jewelry making. They used my Ginghers to cut wire! :(

    I have had to hide mine cause my lefty son used them for everything. He said they were the only scissors that would cut for him. He has been gone from my household....It is just DH and me. I still hide them. DH will overlook 14 pairs of paper, cut anything type scissors and zero in on my best if they are on my sewing table :thumbdown:
