I just finished the bookmark for my Dad. I used 6 different green fabrics from my Dear Jane stash, a crazy patch pattern from Sew Precise and some gold colored thread for the decorative stitches. I found the beaded trim recently at our dollar store. The bookmark is not quilted but I used a stiff interface when I did the embroidery, that gives it enough body. I like the way it turned out and hope my Dad will like it too.
We have heavy thunderstorms move through our area today. Yikes. We need the rain but I sure could to without all the lightning and thunder, as does Miss K.
