Theme Thursday

This week at Theme Thursday the theme was bookmarks.

This is not the best photo, but here is a better detail.  I’d just gotten home from my Thanksgiving travels with a bunch of fabric sample books my sister-in-law scored from a friend.  There were so many to choose from, but I realized I wanted something fairly simple to then add to.  I chose a striped blue cotton and then printed a stamp several times (Inkadinkado, gemstones) and then small bubble wrap with light gold paint.  I cut a spiral out of angelina and added a small border of angelina as well, then hand stitched it all down.  This was my first foray into angelina and I found I really liked just creating sheets of it to then cut up.  I’m excited to use the bookmark too….I’m in the middle of  Robertson Davies’ Cornish Trilogy.  Thanks for looking!
