I am immensely proud to present my Queen's Crown.  It is all done!

In the photos you can't see its sparkle. Note the pearl headed pins in the ermine part.
I can't believe I made it.  It was a good exercise to couch down metal threads.  This project is wonderfully engineered.  Under the top cross is a needle holder.
When the drawer/tray is pushed in you can't even tell which side is the base and which is the drawer/tray.

 This was a fun project.  Amy Mitten has a journal of how the design evolved on the tutorial.  It is fascinating to read how this all came to be.  I look forward to her next creation - which I will get in a couple of weeks, the World Map pin keep.  Lucky me.
