Georgous bookmark, so inspiring. Love the use of variagated thread with spiders & diamonds. Always wondered what it would look like in bobbin lace. Thanks for sharing.

thread is madeira machine embroidery quilting thread no 40, suspect it looks thicker in the photo than it really is :-)

Only one half attempt to bribe the bear picking the lucky winner. What is the world coming to?

NormaH said...

I've just had my first bobbin lace lesson and your beautiful bookmark looks so encouraging as I especially like working with varigated or hand-dyed threads in my tatting and cq stitching. The goody bag looks like a real treat as well..... sure would like to be the very lucky winner here!
