Scissor Case Finis

I finished up my scissor case over the weekend.  I'm very pleased with how it turned out.  Two down and ?? to go.   :-)  I really don't know how many little treats are coming with our casket class (I have instructions for four or five at this point).  I laced up the next one and started stitching - it's a little pin cushion.  I'll take a photo the next time I work on it. 
 Here are my two little treasures together.  These will have a home in the casket someday. 
This is a set of hand made needlework tools I purchased from the UK.  They are made of English Yew and are all hand turned.  I'll need them for the stumpwork that I'm doing on the casket.  Of course I don't know how to use them yet but that will come in the second 18 month course.  I can't wait.

That scissor case/glove is stunning Margie! I envy your taking this class, but there's no way I could have finished a piece like that.

Enjoy it! :)

What a beautiful scissor case! I don't know that I would have the patience for the finishing on that one. But I admire you for doing it!

That one is really cute and awesome for a scissor holder. I thought it was a keychain. Hope you could make one for me too. Just kidding! But if you can, be my guest. I really love it honestly! I hope you could make other colorful designs of it. Thanks again!
