Finally I can reveal the bookmark I made for Tina, my exchange partner:
So this has travelled all the way to the USA.
I really enjoyed making it and will make another one for me soon. I was so pleased to find the red aida, which is quite a rarity now, I'm told. If you know different, please let me know, as I'd love to have quite a bit of this.
I thought I'd make a card to send with it, and found some perfect papers in my magazine, Papercraft Inspirations, to use, all with a sewing theme. What are the chances of that?
I made this one to send with the bookmark:
but I also like this one:
Unfortunately, because it's a square, it wasn't long enough to house the bookmark.
And this (drum roll) is what Jaimie sent me, also all the way from America:
Isn't it beautiful? I sure hope she likes mine, now I've seen this, what a talented woman (multi-talented as it turns out). I am so blessed, though. I can't wait to do another exchange. I am pleased that I can take on something like this and work to a deadline, because when you're new to something, it's hard to tell, isn't it? I'll show you my latest project again tomorrow, so you can see how I'm progressing.
Have a great day, everyone!
