Hardanger Bookmark

This is my first finish of 2009, I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. It is one of my designs.

Fabric - 22ct hardanger in white
Thread - DMC perle 5# in white & DMC 3348 stranded cotton
Backing - Forest Green felt



The local newspaper has done a two page spread on the Christmas Tree Festival at church. The stitched ornament tree was a main photo feature, I've scanned the paper photo in for you to see the wording.

Back to school and work tomorrow - for everyone else returning "have a good day".

  6. Thank you for the comment on the colour of the floss for my BP SAL, I realise of course a softer colour would be best...
