Ethereal Bookmark: Part 2

~Ethereal Bookmark: Part 2~

(Find part 1 here)

My ethereal rose bookmark is now finished and listed on Etsy.

It was carefully tatted, using my original design, in high quality pale pink and white cotton threads. It's 1 3/4 inches (44 mm) at it's widest point and just under 6 1/2 inches (162 mm) long. It comes in its own handmade  stiff card slipcase. Care instructions included.

If you would like this in different colours, please check out my custom listing here

I'm just about to finish the other gothic bookmark (find a sneak peek here). This will be listed soon.

Ethereal Bookmark

(Find part 2 here)

Hi to all and Happy 4th of July to those in the US.

I'm  currently working on an ethereal bookmark and I thought I'd show you some work in progress pictures.

I'm using my 'Rosa' pattern but this time I've gone for a lovely pale pink thread, in the picture above. 

For the vines I've decided to use a white cotton thread. I'm now up to a point where I can start sewing the ends in. What do you think? I should have this listed in my Etsy shop by tomorrow. 

Keep up to date with all the latest news through my twitter page and Facebook fan page.

Have a nice Wednesday,
Heather x

My Geeky Side

Good afternoon. I'm letting my geeky side out in this post :P

Two weeks ago I finally started reading Labyrinth by Kate Mosse. I bought it about 6 years ago after it won the Richard and Judy Book Club Award. I'm only 200 pages in but I'm loving it. It's about two women, Alais and Alice (one in the 13th Century, the other in present day) in France and how they reveal the secrets of the Holy Grail.

So last week I decided to look on IMDB to see if anyone was working on an adaptation. Lo and behold there it was. Turns out it's being created right now as a TV mini series by the same companies who worked on Pillars Of The Earth (a great TV series based on Ken Follett's novel of the same name). Here's the site for it.

It stars Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter), John Hurt, Tony Curran and Emun Elliott (Marillion the singer in Game Of Thrones).

I'm getting so excited to see it. I read somewhere that Channel 4 in the UK have the rights to show it sometime this year. I'm sure it will be shown in other countries around the same time.

Here are the two Behind The Scenes videos:

Hope we get a trailer soon. This will definitely keep me going until Series 3 of Game Of Thrones next year!
