Carol collects bookmarks so i had to think of something a bit different. Her favourite flower is the gerbera daisy. I found this great design in a book 'Cross Stitch Flower Gardens' by Christina Marsh. Not the conventional shape for a bookmark so i decided to make a page parker instead and included a traditional leather bookmark with the Clock Tower on it from my own City. I used 22ct fabric to make it a nice size and DMC threads.
Rose Garden is blooming too, made a good start on that last night, and i hope to continue with it over the weekend. I've finally decided what to make the challenge piece into so will hopefuly get that done and a pic emailed to Karen for the album as well. Lots of ladies have requested this retired chart this time, so the album should be full of nice finishes for us all to drool over and get ideas for future months finishes LOL
Enjoy your weekend whatever your plans
Yes Sandra the middles of the flowers are all french knots LOL
