More coming soon, I promise (and a link party)

There is a lot of planning for events, hops, QAL etc that I am going to announce in the next few weeks. This means again very little sharable crafting, but again something small and cute...

The Ongoing Project List:

    Ok, so basically this is the only picture I can share... cute bookmark.

    3.5'' x 9.5''

    I designed it in Google Spreadsheet and stitched it up using cross stitching!
    It went together super fast. I then just used a decorative zig-zag stitch around three sides, slided in a piece of thick paper and then I  stitched the top close. In this way if it bends, we can just change up the cardboard inside and the bookmark will be like new!! :)
    The other fun thing is that on the two characters I used 2 strands of floss and 1 strand of glow-in-the-dark thread... when you turn off the light, Snoopy and Woodstock light up! I think they needed their own light because they want to read when they are closed in the book ;)

    How about you? What are YOU up to?
    Link it here and share it with me!!


    1. I'm looking forward to your next QAL!

    2. I hear ya - all the QAL's take up a ton of personal sewing time! But they can be rewarding


    Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
    Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
