First Finish Finish of 2012

Looks like I just learned a new trick. 

I took these photos on a piece of blue foam core board and wow! That looks fantastic. 

I spent the better part of yesterday finishing my Viola Scissor Case designed by Betsy Morgan of Willing Hands. 

Before you get too excited, Betsy's kits are still only available through taking a class with her. And this particular one is retired, also. 

Color me proud! 

I've got enough leftover silk that I've been contemplating the creation of a companion piece. And I may even have more of this fabric in my own stash. And I've got this fabulous button that Betsy found after the piece was designed and included in the kit. 

Could be fun!

So beautiful, such a shame that the pattern is not freely available.

You are right, the turquoise background works very well.

I've taken to using white foam core. (It's what I've got laying around.)
