Bookmarks and An Invitation

Good afternoon everyone. Hope you're having a good week. It's lovely and sunny here although to tell you the truth I actually prefer it a little cooler than this. We have all the windows open yet it's still too hot. I'm just about to go and have a cool drink but before that it's time for a blog post.

So what have I been up to? Well as usual I have several projects on the go. I'm working on two fairly large orders. I've also be making some more bookmark. Here are some sneak peeks:

I'm loving tatting this one up. It uses my 'Janessa' butterfly pattern. I think it looks great in the multicoloured thread although it does mean I've nearly run out of this colourway. I'll have to order some more from the US before I can list more than one bookmark.

This was one of those ideas that looked great in my head but I wasn't sure if it would work in practice. It uses my 'Rosa' design. I decided to use three colours for the rose in the centre and I'm so glad I went with it. A watercolour painting springs to mind. For the sides I'm using cream and olive green thread. 

I'll have these two finished and listed by the weekend.

Speaking of Rosa bookmarks, I've listed a white version on Etsy.

This would make a great wedding favour or perhaps a gift for Valentine's Day next year. You can also customize this design here.

One last thing I'd like to talk about today.

Are you thinking about opening up your very own Etsy shop? If yes then I have an invitation for you. 

If you click here and then create and open your shop, your first 40 listings will be free! Cool eh :)

Time to get back to the work.

Have a nice Thursday,
