I’m always in need of a bookmark but I can never find one, which is strange because I used to work in a library and amassed quite a collection of them. Anyway, some months back as I was asking my grandmother, the woman who has everything, what she wanted for Christmas, I noticed she was marking her place in her book with a napkin. This gave me an idea. She has always appreciated my cross stitched gifts to her in the past so why not give her something both cross stitched and practical? And voila! A cross stitched bookmark!
Such a simple little bookmark with 500 different colors in it. For a design that came on the back of the package it gave me fits. But it came out pretty. While I was working on it I ran across one I did a few years ago.
Years ago you could find neon colored canvas at Hobby Lobby with patterns for different funky designs, but alas, no longer. I’ve looked for them but haven’t been able to find them. Now I’m off to find a book in which to put my bookmark!
