Stitching w/Deadlines ...

I did finish one book mark for the Nordic Needle challenge
I don't think I'll have enough time to stitch a second design

I was asked who designed this particular bookmark -- I checked the Leisure Arts booklet & several designers are listed for this collection. More about the pattern booklet HERE. And, if you are interested in the challenge, stitch quickly as they are supposed to be submitted by May 8th!

Next, I will hand piece a couple block for the Friendship Quilt. More about that HERE. I have the pieces cut out & have started to stitch the flower pot sections together. I try to make TWO blocks & submit the best one!

This might be a better picture of the bookmark:

Embroidery Floss Cards
I found an interesting freebie HERE. There are instructions and patterns to make your own Embroidery Floss Cards. Looks like fun - so creative : )

Hey, Lelia, good for you getting one done! Last year I don't think I managed to get any out to Nordic Needle, so I figure anything better than "none" is good! ;)

I love the one you made - it's so sweet!

Lelia, it's wonderful that you finished one bookmark and a real cutie too! Just think how many they'd have if each of us did make just one!
