Last spring during our trip to England, one of the souvenirs I picked up at the Tower of London was a cross stitch Tudor rose bookmark kit. I used to do cross stitch years ago, but then work and family took up most of my time and that, along with reading, went by the wayside. During the early summer I completed that bookmark and promptly gave it away during a Paperback Swap challenge. That got me to thinking about making more to give away - so, that’s what I’m going to do! Every month, I will be giving away at least one book mark. Depending upon how productive I’ve been that month, there may be more than one to choose from or maybe even more than one given away!
I’ve managed to acquire quite a few patterns for the time being but if anyone has any suggestions for ones you would like to see, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
To start things off with a bang for January, I’ll be giving away both of these this month:
To enter, please leave a comment with your email address by January 31, 2010. Winners will be chosen by random.org and the first one selected will get to choose which bookmark they would like. International entrants are welcome.
Please note that I’m still working on perfecting my finishing technique, so hopefully you will all be willing to overlook any flaws!
