Bookmarks 12 to 15..... getting there!

Oh yeah...forgot I need to finish this challenge too!! So here is Bookmark number 12...





Jane Eborall's Flowery SCMR bookmark which I ADORE!!


Done in Bre-Aly size 30 thread (hand dyed from Bre-Aly on Etsy)


Another UFO bites the dust!!




Bookmark 13






Julie Patterson's Spring Flowers Bookmark
My "in flight" pattern LOL.  Done in Pansy Perfect Quilter (about an 80)




Bookmarks 14 & 15






Ok - maybe cheating a little using the same pattern but I LOVE the pattern.  Top one is in Altin Basak and the bottom one is in Lizbeth Caribbean.  Just needed tassels.....all better now! AHA!! Now thanks to MaureenL I know who to credit the pattern to. When I did it the first time and put it up here I had no idea who it was and did ask but all I got told was that it was an adaptation of an old Anna magazine pattern. So....
THANKYOU Jane McLellan for an absolutely wonderful pattern!!

  4. Really nice book marks your work is superb love 12 and the blue one on the end as my favorites I don't know if you have tried it but I use fre-check and a couple of layers it's crystal clear and make the book marks straight as an arrow. Wont distract from any beautiful work.

    1. Never used it - not sure if it is available in Australia but will look at alternatives. Usually put them into a plastic bookmark sleeve if they are to be used. Good idea. Thanks.
