It Happened One Night

My bookmark is finished. I changed my plans for it several times and finally decided to complete it by backing it with a purple polka dot fabric and pinking the edges like these bookmarks.

Tonight promised to be the perfect night to curl up with a good book, i.e. it was supposed to rain. So I pulled out my copy of The Quintessence of Beauty and Romance, one of Mom's old books I adopted as a teenager. I thought I might read Night Bus, the story It Happened One Night was based upon.

But it didn't rain, and the kids didn't go to bed, so I don't think I will READ, read tonight. I will just stick to "reading" an audio book and try to get some things done around here. Problem is, the bookmark doesn't work as well with audio books...

What a great idea! I've been looking for bright ideas for my kid's teachers. I'm going to embroider like made.

Thank you Caroline!
I got a little carried away with the lazy daisy stitch and french knots, but those are my two favorites!
Have fun and thanks for dropping by,
