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.

I love the bookmark. Green is my favorite color. We got those storms around 5 p.m. We need the rain also, but a nice steady rain would be a lot less scary than the hail, thunder, and lightening!

We did not get the rain. We need it so so badly. It is to hot to cook. I wish it was cool so I could make something in the kitchen
