pretty pin cushion baggy

In my quest to finish something every week, I made this little pin cushion baggy for a girly I know.  It needs the stuffing putting into the pincushion part, but is otherwise done.  Yah me ;)

Ally Pally Knitting and Stitching Show 2012

It was hot, crowded and I was bashed with a backpack one too many times.  Seemed to be a massive frenzy of people buying, or maybe just looking, people didn't seem to be carrying stuffed carrier bags.  We did find a restaurant with seats though :)
Didn't take the camera out of my bag so no pics. 

However, I did introduce baby daughter to the delights of exhbition attending and she has agreed to go again next year, so it can't have been that bad.....

Next stop Harrogate

just a small piece

6" x 6"  layered felt, muslin, silk carrier rods, knitting yarn, wool tops mushed together using the embellisher machine, then hand stitched with a few beads for good measure

and a close up.
The pink and purply round things are the tops of silk cocoons, bought from Oliver Twists, along with the carrier rods, already dyed.
