Tape Measure

April 24, 2007

My 3rd exchange piece for 2007. This is the covered tape measure I stitched for Heidi, for the Robin’s Nest Mystery Exchange. I wanted to stitch something different from the other exchanges I’ve taken part in so I picked this. The motif’s are adapted from an  fil en aiguille sampler
