I decided to do a sorta rose bud and bow look. I know Marilla loved roses amongst her many flowers in her garden and so do I. vbg
For the backing of the bookmark I used hand dyed shades of green fabric with timtex place in between the layers to give it stiffness. I also added one of my favorite quotes that Anne stated when she arrived at Green Gables. Anne said, "This Island is the bloomiest place. I just love it already, and I'm so glad I'm going to live here. I've always heard that Prince Edward Island was the prettiest place in the world..." I have not been to PEI but hopefully one day I will be able to travel to PEI and see this bloomiest place. I am sure I will love it too.
One could not have a Anne of Green Gable Bookmark without the words "Kindred Spirit" on it. So I printed off some "Green Words" and stitched them onto the center of the bookmark.
Here is the finished "Anne of Green Gable Bookmark" I used the 100% wool dyed yarn and stitched it around the edges with the button hole stitch and made a wee rose bud in the bottom left corner. I enjoyed making this quick and easy bookmark so much I may create a couple more for gifts. VBG
I just have to tell you all about the new book out called, "The Prequel to Anne of Green Gables, "Before Green Gables" by a sweet lady named Budge Wilson. You can see this book at Penguin Group. I am enjoying this book immensely. I can not say enough great things about this lovely book. I hope anyone that is a huge fan of Anne of Green Gables like I am will have the opportunity to read this book.
Hugs to all, Judy
