I have started the bookmarks for nursery. We have had to bring forward the end of nursery for DD so now I have only 4 weeks to complete about 25 bookmarks. The good news is that they are stitching up as quickly and easily as I hoped and I have completed two already. They are taking less than an hour each.
The pattern is taken from a design called Tranquillity Sampler by Hermanson Hardanger. On the original there is also Kreinik braid in the gap between the inner diamond and the outside, but I'm going to leave it blank as I think they look fine as they are. I will do the whole sampler at some point.
Here are the first couple and the next started. I have left them all on the one big roll of banding (there's five meters there so I shouldn't run out), and will cut them all at the end.
And I did finish off the Map of NZ bookmark since I was doing the finishing on the scissor fob (which has been posted but I haven't heard that it's been received yet, so I can't post pictures yet) - here it is finished. The canvas in the background is the stretched canvas for the first Jim Wurth Dodecagon ornament. A nice bright red there :)
