Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind, and dance upon the mountains like a flame! ~W.B. Yeats
Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half light, I would spread the cloths under your feet.
But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams...

Tudor Rose Bookmark
My mom was so awesome. I found the kit to this in her things and since I love the Tudor times, I stitched it right up. Of course I had to add my favorite Rainbow Gallery gold braid to give it extra sparkles...you know how I am with the sparklie things.
I found the greatest thing to back bookmarks with!!
Its strap fabric off the rollie thing in the trim department.
The best things about the strap fabric is:
1. Its the perfect width
2. Its firm but not too firm
3. Its not too thick at all
4. And the edges are finished, so no extra bulk!
I did add a tiny strip of Skirtex (love that product) inside so the bookmark wouldn't be floppy. I just don't care for floppy bookmarks.
This is the first bookmark I've ever done. And I'm really happy with it. :)
