Stained Glass Window by Textile Heritage of Scotland
Stitched with aida and thread provided
Finished with felt backing and tassle provided
Making up the bookmark was my first time sewing on my new machine unaccompanied, as my usual guide (mum) wasn't at home. It went pretty smoothly and I can already feel my control getting better - it's nice to see improvement so quickly!
I didn't have anyone in mind for the bookmark when I started it, but Dad made several hints about liking it as I stitched and as it's his birthday at the end of this week, I think it will have a happy new owner.
I hope you guys like the new Summer design! I took the photo on my holiday at Lake Tekapo, which is in the middle of the South Island of NZ. I think the aida background brings back the craftiness though :)
That's all for now,
