Bookmark

Last night while watching Inspector Barnaby of Causton CID I completed the stitching on this bookmark.
It was on Riona's blog here that I first saw this and she kindly gave permission for anyone to stitch from her photograph.   So a scrap of linen and odds and ends of floss and here we are!    Now I need to decide how to finish this - there is enough linen at the top to fold down and make the back.   Then  nice cord and tassel, but will that need to go top or bottom???


Thank you very much Riona - I really enjoyed this and will be making others I am sure.   Deciding on the colours of the spines and the thickness of the books was fun.
Tonight I will look through my box and choose the next project.   Perhaps the next "block" on the Heirloom Nativity Sampler?   Or the next animal on Kelly's Growth Chart?   But I am itching to do some hardanger too.... so many choices.
Have a good evening everyone.

  1. I look forward to seeing your finish Margaret. I would like to stitch a few bookmarks but worry about how I might finish them off.
