Bookmark Swap....Done and Soon Gone.....

Someone is hiding in this book...
...this is my version of a very demure Pippi.



This one was inspired by my love of home and the enjoyment I get when curled up with a book.


This one would be the more sedate marker.

Looks as if it needs another good pressing.

I had a good time making these three. I hope that the recipient will enjoy them.
I did remark to my husband that they were really ginormous bookmarks and he immediately chimed in, "They could be prayer shawls." One could always pray while reading I suppose, or wrap one around the throat if cold.
I am disappointed in the photos and very annoyed that although they were cropped and rotated, they have reverted to their original state! They were so hard to take, but as always, click on each one if you so desire for a better view.

Best

You did a fabulous job, my favorite is the one with the house on it too!! And that book with the pippi (my all time favorite book character - she had a pet monkey for heavens sake!) bookmark looks interesting. Come hell or high water I will finish mine today and get them in the mail tomorrow!
