Hey everyone I have finished the first item on my long list of projects! My mother’s day gift! I chose to make a simple bookmark for her this year. It took me about 4 days. I used 18 count Aida cross stitch cloth and Sulky thread colors. The pattern I used was from Donna Kooler’s 555 country cross-stitch Patterns. A book I have found very useful for all sorts of projects! The border I made is called a Shading Stitch. And when the stitching was finished I attached a white cotton cloth backing to cover up the knots on the back!
Colors used: 2 Purples; #942 1033 #942 1193, 1 Pink; #942 1192, 1 Red; #9421309 2 Greens; #942 1104 #942 1049
Sorry for the blurry photos!
