Victorian Pansies Bookmark

I finished the bookmark well before the challenge end date.  This makes my third finish for 2017. Woo Hoo!

Designer: Textile Heritage
Fabric: 18ct White Aida Band
Fibers: DMC
Finished: Felt Back, Cream Tassel
 
This was a really fun kit to stitch. The aida was so soft! The felt is thin enough it adds a little bit of stability, but not much bulk.  I have one more pansy kit.. a sachet... to add to my pansy smalls.
 
Victorian Pansies Needlebook and Scissor Fob
Stitched in 2007 and 2008.

What a pretty bookmark. I really have to make one for myself someday. All of my paper ones are quite raggedy. I love those pansies. Enjoy making that sachet.

Beautiful stitching, Meari. I've looked at these pansy patterns and have been tempted to buy them. But so far, I've been able to resist temptation. They are very pretty.

Pansies are one of my favorite spring flowers. Your bookmark is so pretty, as are the needlebook and scissor fob. Those stitches must be really small!

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party and for linking back. Aloha hugs!

Such a gorgeous finish, Meari--I do love stitched pansies almost as much as the real thing. Hope you have a relaxing, stitch-filled weekend!
