Challenge finish

i actualy managed to get a challenge done for challenge for a finish, a pin cushion mounted on a tiny tray, i found a set of them on a carboot last year and intended on mounting the stitching in the bottom of the tray but for the smallest i could'nt find a design small enough so this one was mounted on the rim, rather pleased with the result....
