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".

Your boook mark is stunning well done, something I still have to try to do myself.

Great about the christmas tree in the newspaper, well done you for organising it.

Happy and Blessed New Year

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...
