Weekend Book Quotes

Bookmarks by Maureen. I love many things about these: the overdyed thread which provides beautiful color variations; the cross stitch frame around the flowers which makes the design feel complete; the fringe; the felt that’s sized larger than the fabric to act as another frame; the pinked edge; the ribbon tail so that the needlework can dangle outside the book when appropriate. Nice!
