Next One Done....

Here's the second bookmark backed. It doesn't show up too well, but the backing is dusky pink, so not as dark as it seems on the photo here.

Glad I was able to help with the ring cushion ideas, Lili. I have a lovely hardanger pattern by Anchor which would be great. Really simple, but hardanger always looks impressive!!=) My dh intends to frame the cards he's been given by me too. There are 3 so far, and I'll do him another 2 this year for our 7th wedding anniversary and for his MA graduation too. Should make a nice display, although I dread to think where he's going to hang them - next to no wall space left in here.....

Should have number three bookmark done over the w/e, but I have to do repairs on it first as I accidentally snipped one of the edging stitches whilst cutting it out of the fabric piece and so I need to re-do that. I have a scrap piece to practice on, but I'm told it is possible to replace edging stitches like this, although tricky!

This bookmark definitely is my favourite! My colours and all...
I tried to find this Anchor hardanger pattern on the web, but I couldn't! I would love to do this, though! For the moment, I have tried something (see my latest post), but I'm not feeling very confident without a clear design... Qué sera, sera...
Hugs!
