Here is a photo of my bookmarks. I did three using the mat border from my current project Cyclamen Scroll. I added a mosaic and reverse mosaic filling stitch. I used three different Watercolors and two different pearl cotton threads. It only takes about 4-5 hours to complete one. As you can see I don’t do much finishing. Canvas lends itself to trimming and then I ravel the end, I do take care with the back of the bookmark. I pay attention to my traveling threads always slipping them underneath existing stitches. The back looks neat and that is all I worry about, after all they are just bookmarks not works of art…….
I have made great progress on Cyclamen Scroll. the leaves are done and more blackwork background behind the leaves. Today there is baseball and I will work some more on the mat pattern. Photos soon.
