Trellis

I’ve just listed a new “Botanic Bookmark” design in my Etsy and Folksy shops. Here’s a close up:

I started making these bookmarks for people who liked my machine embroidered bowls but couldn’t give one a home, so the first three were the same designs - Meadow, Cottage Garden and Hedgerow. This new one, called “Trellis”, is the first designed specially as a bookmark, and I’ve surprised myself by being quite pleased with it. I had climbing plants like wisteria, honeysuckle and clematis in mind, but I don’t try and embroider accurate likenesses, only an impression that leaves room for imagination.

More photos in my shops.

They’re also available from Platform Gallery, Clitheroe.
