'Teaching' bookmark

Two days ago I made this little bookmark for my husband's oldest niece who is a Math teacher in Kumluca (Antalya, Turkey)



Pattern is from 'Thoughtful Moments Bookmark' by Linda Bird. I modified it a little because I was using 14ct aida instead of 18ct. Finishing idea came from Camp Cross Stitch. Thank you Stitching the night away for the link, I'd been looking for something like this, once the link came up I started to make one immediately and I finished it over the night :). I modified it by using 2 different colours of floss for the border by alternating them. It turned out very pretty. I also added a tassel of all the treads that I used on the top side.

I love it and I think Feride would love it as well. But Serkan said 'what is that for? that thing is too big for a bookmark!' GRRRR but my daughter quickly said 'mummy mummy, I like it, its very beautiful... see, I'm apprecenting it' (she meant 'appreciating') :)

***** many thanks, terima kasih, sağol, شُكْرًا

  3. I have been looking for the pattern book for "Teaching a the work of the heart" for years. I lent it to someone years ago and never got it back. Please tell me the title of the cross stitch book you got this from. Thank you.
