Stitch a Day

Tuesday, October 26, 2004

This is my 2nd attempt at a blackwork bookmark. The picture on the right was the first one. I like it very much, but I unfortunately damaged it while in the finishing stage. I did it again in purple, but this time I decided to leave out the busy work. They have quite different effects, don't you think? I sent out the 2nd one to my exchange partner. Posted by Hello


  • These are gorgeous Tracy, you do such delicate work. Such a shame the 1st one got damaged! What happened? (I can't see anything wrong in the piture!) I do hope you can salvage it. The bookmarks do give different effects, but honestly, both are just as pretty and your exchange partner must be delighted!

  • Thanks, Isabelle,
    The damage to the first one is that I started to finish it wrong and I had to cut too close to the stitching to fix it. I used stop fray around all the edges, so it will be ok, just not something I'd want to send to a partner. I want everything that leaves my house to be as "perfect" as I can make it.

  • Hi Tracey, they are both really lovely - that might be a good idea for a meme theme - I will email you the 'how to' for the button *hugs*
