I thought I would show you all my cross stitched bookmarks! I have probably around 1500 bookmarks in total. Many I have made, many I have received. But here are the cross stitched ones.
I like repeating a pattern if I find a little one. Thus is the case with the three to the left and the one to the right. Fourth from the left are my initials AE. The flags are from the top: Finland, Åland islands (belongs to Finland, in the Baltic sea), unofficial flag for Swedish speaking Finns (my minority), the Sami flag (first inhabitants of Finland, also found in Sweden and Norway), Sweden, Norway, Faroe Islands, Denmark, Greenland, and at the bottom, Iceland. In short, flags used in the Nordic countries and their territories!
The blue bunny and the green/orange/yellow stripes are made on plastic canvas. A few I have glued to cardboard. On the top, to the right, are a row of small Russian babushkas.
I decided to add the ones recently made too, so here are the floral ones again. Cute owls and black Christmas cats.
And here are the music bookmarks again, with some colorful monsters and cats sitting of roofs.
Here are funny sheeps, three teddy bears, birds and a one with flowers and butterflies.
In the middle some butterflies and then some symmetrical patterns and bookmarks with hearts and flowers.
Finally, several owls and two trolls!
Most of these are probably Vervaco, some I have found in various cross stitch magazines etc. I finished a bookmark today! But I am going to wait until I have cross stitched the matching pair before posting a picture.
I love cross stitching bookmarks!
