    Scissors with soft end, 3 size ?

    I am french, member of your group I appreciate very much. About one year ago, I read a post on scissors that had soft end (sort of plastic gum). The author of the post told there were 3 sizes, and gave a link to buy them. I have buyed one I think the size of embroidery scissors, (with blue ends and a signature on the metal hard to read : something like Karin Kay Bickley ?) it is wonderfull tu cut the fabric at 1/4 inch on paper pieced patchwork, very sharp and precise. I would like to buy the other sizes but I don't find the post, nor see them when I look embroidery scissors on Google. Can someone help me.
    Thanks

    Try www.KarenKayBuckley.com or google Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Scissors and you'll see pictures of the different sizes.

    your quilt is beautiful. hope that you find the scissors you need.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Beautiful quilt!! Look forward to seeing many of your pictures. Most have problem with pictures because of the size. Generally I resize by half and have no problems. So if a picture won't post, try re-sizing (make smaller).
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I see someone sent you a site to look for them on the computer, but I saw an ad for your scissors in my most recent issue of Quilter's Newsletter--plus pictures of quilts that you might want to do. Yours is beautiful.
    Make every day count for something!
