Pocket Scissor Keep

I'm back on the wagon for the Monthly Finishing Challenge, and made a pocket pinkeep scissor keep for this month's challenge. I used Staci's instructions, which made things very easy. Next time I will try something a bit harder, but this is an acceptable first effort.

Completely off the subject of your scissors...I found you by searching those with My True Love Waits in their fav books section. I noticed that Beany Malone was in there as well and wondered if you have read all of Webers work. She is my great-grandmother and I love her books, I am always interested in finding people that read her books. My True Love Waits (my favorite of hers) seems to be less well known then her Beany Malone series.

Have a great weekened.
