I've had some problems with my hands recently. I developed a rather nasty callous  on my middle  finger with the constant rubbing of the scissors while I was cutting the fine applique.

More alarmingly I noticed the nerves in the same finger were being affected by constant use of the scissors. I had electric shocks playing riot in my hand at times.

I love my applique scissors, (I use 7" Dovo Scissors) but I realized that I needed to make some adjustments, so now armed with two new pairs of very expensive scissors with wider padded handles, I hope I can repair the damage.

    Hi Pammy,
    This sounds like the start of RSI, have you been to a doctor?

    Maybe just a reaction to the metal, I find I get arthritic type pains if I use metal knitting needles but am fine with plastic or bamboo.
