I do know a lot of readers. It is just that these suede bookmarks were $30 and so they need to go to someone special! Normally, I would not have purchased them but my husband hit at the casino right before visiting Nimble Needle, shared his winnings with me, & so I splurged!!
Well, I know Bill gets the Shamrock and I am keeping the Fuchsia! And, I think 2 are going to my previous boss and my current boss – I will let them pick from the 4 remaining. That leaves 2 of these lovely bookmarks looking for a home! I am thinking of my shuffleboard partner who is a member of a book club and our friend in the Poconos.
They are well made & I used FABRI-TAC, a permanent adhesive, around the edges to finish them that I purchased a while ago at the recommendation from Rittenhouse Needlepoint’s finisher. That was one reason why I got the bookmarks – no further cost to finish them.
I did these using basketweave/tent stitch. And, got 4 done over the long ‘Sandy’ stormy weekend. They did work up quickly. Here are the threads I used:
