Tape Measure

This is the work for The August 2011 Tape Measure Challenge from The Gift of Stitching magazine (issue 66).

From the proposed models, I chose two patterns (from the book “The Anotonie Ehrlich Crochet Book No. 3”).
Stitched on 32 count Lambswool linen (Permin of Copenhagen), with DMC floss number 3809.
Thanks for the kind words on my last post!

Delicate Pillow

This pin pillow is from the digital magazine “The Gift of Stitching”, the latest issue (Issue 64 – June 2011).

It is called “Delicate Pin Pillow” by The Primitive Hare.

The issue also gives a great interview, I really enjoy read it and learn a little more about the brand.
