pinblock & Anna magazines(old issues)

This is the stitched piece for the pinblock, the SAL at stitch-creations that i've joined not so long ago. It's a pretty quick stitch. For anyone interested you can find it on her blog.




I've used 14ct aida and GAST-cherry wine. I do like how it turned out and i am sure this will remain at my table filled with pins as i used pins quite a lot, for counting the stitches especially for a bigger project.




We have quite a big plan for renovations later this year or next year, it is still a while but i'd better start clearing out some craft magazines(Dutch)
These are old ones from year 1998-2002 and not complete. I didn't subscribe to it just bought it once in a while. Thought to through them all out but maybe someone have interest with it. You can have it. Just send me a note or leave a message here. Please, i prefer someone who lives here in Holland as posting packages outside Holland is very expensive.

[[The magazines has already taken]]

I hope everyone's having a good week. Thanks so much for stopping by. I areally appreciates your visits.

Beautiful pincube, Mylene!! Very clever.

Christine said...

The pincube is lovely. Does it have some kind of stiffening in it to help it hold its shape?

Karan said...

Hi Mylene
Your pinblock is lovely. You have lots of magazines there! A lucky person will be very pleased to receive them and have many happy hours of reading and picking up new ideas.
Have a lovely weekend.

Love the pinblock.
nice finishing

Jan said...

What a lovely project this is, Mylene!! Wow!

Erica said...

Your pinblock is amazing! I want to do one now!

The Old Aviary techniques aren't that complicated. It's just my aging eyes trying to cope with 40 count linen that is tough!
Makes for slow-going and a lot of frogging!

Sandra said...

The pinblock is awesome Mylene! What did you use to stuff it? It looks so perfectly cubed!

Wendy said...

Those are really lovely projects! You did a wonderful job on it.
