At NNC, we have always poked fun at Emily *wink* when it comes to food, especially ice-creams, so, I thought how appropriate this bookmark of an ice-cream sundae with chocolate fudge topping, whipped cream and cherry would be for Emily. Yum! Sounds delicious! Further more, Emily loves to read and she has formed a book crossing group online.
It did not take me long to stitch the bookmark. What took longer was putting it together to make it into a bookmark, because this is the first time I am doing up a bookmark this way. Usually I would sew a lace aound the egdes of the bookmark and iron on interafcing at the back. But, I thought I'd do something a little bit different this time around. Not bad, huh? *wink*
The second bookmark I did is for Margaret who is into tea and coffee. So, this bookmark should be appropriate for her. I took even a shorter time stitching this one up. I think it took me only 4 days, as part of it was stithed in the car while waiting to pick up my son in school.
Yeah, I had to get to his school early if I don't want to end up double parking and risk being given a summon by the police. I didn't want to waste any time, and so out came my stitching as soon as I managed to get a good parking spot. *grin*
I am in the midst of stitching a 3rd bookmark for another friend. I am not telling who she is just yet. *wink* I hope to surprise her when I send it out to her. But, for now, the bookmark has taken a back seat as I concentrate on my SHS.
