pins and needles

a while back i saw such a cute idea on one of the blogs i follow. melissa in new zealand makes the most darling things! her embroidered brooches just delighted me... so of course, had to make one. you can see her tutorial at tiny happy.
please, tell me what you think of my version.
i think i'll make several more to put in my etsy shop... watch for them next week!

the black "bundle" is my embroidery thingy, just a piece of felt with a ribbon sewn on. for any particular project, put your palette of floss on the felt, a few needles, and it's easy to wrap up everything, including all the single or double strands of floss and keep it all together. very handy indeed...
