I have so many things I would like to be making at the moment that I don’t get any of them started. To keep from not accomplishing anything I’ve kept on making bookmarks.
I had a few false starts when making “Milan” cross bookmark. The first time the long, bottom leg came out great but I hadn’t thought through how to make the ‘arms’. The second time I finished it but the bottom leg was way too wide. I’ll keep it for myself – I did put a lot of work into it – but it looks rather odd. (I did not take a picture of it.) I learned a lot from both trials and this is the result.
When making “Milan” center it doesn’t lay flat but once the arms are made it lays flat with minimal blocking. Just putting this in a book or putting something heavy on it would straighten it out well. My problem with it was my chains – I couldn’t keep the tension right. I am pleased with how this one in Ocean Turquoise Light turned out.
Now if I can only get organized to work on the other things I want to!
