If you blog about it she'll give you an extra entry into the giveaway. Go have a look at her blog she has the cutest new furbaby. An Irish Setter pup named Rory.

So I thought I'd show a couple of pictures of my own furbabies.

Bookmarks Have Been Received In Canada

Tara informed me today that she received her bookmarks and silk thread today, so I thought I would show a picture of the bookmarks I made for her.

Here they are:

The one on the left is a design from Dumani Designs. It's the flower design one and of course I changed the colors and added beads. I used Caron's Impressions Baby's Breath and Spruce. In the center of each flower I put a small gold sequin and gold bead. I finished the bookmark off in a Nun's Stitch and fringed it.
The bookmark on the right is a Victoria Sampler Freebie. I used the color scheme that was set forth in the pattern for this one as I liked the colors myself. It was a bonus that Tara likes that softer palette too, lol. The only thing I really changed on this pattern was the edge. I made it complete buttonhole around it and it was supposed to be done in the Nun's Stitch. Included in her package was a floss card of Rainbow Gallery's Splendor in a nice soft pink color.

Tara, I'm glad you like the bookmarks I made. I hope you will treasure them as I treasure yours.

Keep On Stitchin'....
