Elizabethan Pin Cushion and Needlebook Finished

I finished the Pin Cushion last night but wanted to wait to take the pics till the sun was up! I am really happy with how this turned out. Since all of the hexes except the top one is lined with plastic it made for a very difficult finishing. Yes, I have a hole in my finger from pushing the needle through but I think it was worth it.There was a few moments there that I was worried that it wouldn't line up at the end. Next one like this that I make will have a different kind of plastic or interfacing or something so the sewing is a bit easier. All in all it is very pretty!
And here is the Needlebook all finished. I am not really happy with how the pages went in as they are not perfectly spaced or centered and they didn't line up on the outer edge and so I had to trim them to match BUT it is only for my use and so as long as it's functional that's really all that matters. I just have to finish the labels for the pages and sew those to the felt and then I can fill it up! Yeah! 

This is also my two finishes for this months WIPocalypse update. Unfortunately I have no clue what I want to start on next or if I want to work on anything started. I do know I am not in the mood for cross stitch today....Maybe tomorrow will be different!
