More bookmarks

Yesterday I found time to list some of the new poke proof pouches in my Etsy shop - the shuttle and pansy fabric ones.

Well it was SO funny. I finished listing (which takes me quite a time as I'm easily distracted) and went straight downstairs to make a cup of tea. When I got back upstairs again with the tea I found one of them had already sold!!! No, I didn't drop the tea but it was a close thing!!

These bookmarks are from my sister. She made them following Jane's pattern.
I asked what threads she'd used and she said they were old fine ones which she doubled up. Aren't they just SO pretty?

  1. These are really pretty colors. I remember Wilma Walker talking about how when she started having trouble seeing size 80 in stitches, she combined the threads which made it a bigger thread, but also produced some interesting color combinations.

  3. Must be a family trait, combining threads!
    I'm waiting for the "ornery" bags!

  4. Hello Jane, Lovely bookmarks! The colors look so pretty combined. Does your sister design patterns too? Does she have a webpage or a blog yet?? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Have a great day!

  5. How pretty! I like the way combined threads look -- such subtle color changes.

  6. I wasn't joking when I told you that I seriously coveted one of the pouches. Been waiting with index poised to click for days! Didn't mean to give you a turn.
