Thank heavens for the postman....

....otherwise I would have nothing to show you! Luckily for me, my postman delivered a small parcel which contained...



These were some bookmarks that I made for Craftseller magazine. These were actually in November's issue of the magazine, but the samples don't get returned to me for a few weeks after publication in case a reader has a question about the design, instructions etc. 

Here are some close ups of the designs...




This is how they were shown in the magazine...

Craftseller Issue 17
Immediate media Co.

The bookmarks have little toggle tops so that they don't fall out of your book...cute, uh?

And since I have just started a new book, the timing was perfect!



I also managed to finish my pink scarf....


I know it doesn't look much all scrunched up like that, but it makes a very pretty scarf...honestly! I was planning to take a picture of my daughter wearing it when she was home for the weekend, but in true Rhona style, I forgot! Anyway, here's a link to both a picture of the finished scarf and the instructions on how to make it...well worth checking out! Now all I have to do is cross stitch a card to go with the scarf.


Until next time...happy stitching!

The bookmarks are very cute ! The design idea is too good - the book,the owl with specs and the dark background :)
Your ruffled scarf looks very pretty!

Rhona-your owl bookmarks are the cutest ever! Congrats on being featured in a magazine- that's quite an honor!!
Your pink scarf that you made for your daughter is lovely also! Thank you for your willingness to participate in my Pink Scarf Project and for sharing the info with your friends-- I'm so very grateful. I'm looking forward to adding your pink scarf to the collection when you get it made. I will photograph it and link to your blog later this spring.

Thank you so much for your generous heart--
Vicki

I like the colors in your scarf. I actually have that ball of thread to make one of those scarves for my DIL. Speaking of her, she would really flip over those owl bookmarks. Is there anyplace that I could acquire those charts? I am not familiar with that magazine. Is it available in the US?

Omg! Those owls are gorgeous. I think owls are the only animal I love as much as penguins! I hope I can still get a hold of that magazine here!
