Stocking up on Bookmarks- Made By You Monday

Today I wanted to show you all the bookmarks I’ve completed since last week. I had a short break to work up the monogram coasters which I showed you last Friday, but over the weekend I came back to the bookmarks. Here they are:

I still have one more that I am working on (not pictured).  I will be adding to these gradually over the next few weeks with some different designs as well, but my crafting adhd is taking over, and I think my next projects will be a couple of wreaths and a crocheted and lined bag or two.  Did you complete any projects over the weekend?

Bookmarks- Work in Progress Wednesday

A few weeks ago, I participated in a craft fair. This was the 3rd one I’ve done and so far, they really haven’t gone too well. It’s so discouraging! The couple items I did sell however, were my bookmarks. In fact I all but sold out of them, all by one person! (I only had about 5, so it really wasn’t that major). I hadn’t got around to making any more yet, so I decided to take a break from the Japanese Flower Coasters I’ve been working on and make some more bookmarks.
Here are 2 of them in progress:



One has a small cross on and the other will say “Jesus”. They work up fairly quickly, so these are now completed, however I want to make several of each in different colors, so it is still a work in progress. I also need to make some more that say “Hope” and “Peace”.

What are you working on this week? Is it new, or are you replacing something that’s sold?

Jesus Bookmark Plastic Canvas Pattern- Finished Friday

Tuesday I posted my first crochet pattern- a free flower coaster pattern.  I feel more creative with plastic canvas though, and have written many patterns for that, but only for myself.  However, this pattern is one that I have actually posted for sale on Etsy.  I’m not sure how many of my readers do plastic canvas, but if you haven’t you might like to give it a try!  It’s not an expensive hobby, and it’s really not difficult to learn.  For those that do plastic canvas, here is a picture of my bookmark:

Like the military that I wrote about last Friday, my faith is also very important to me.  However, I will be working on many more patterns of all different sorts, so please keep checking back.  The rainbow coaster that I posted on Wednesday as part of my work in progress now has the pattern available in my Etsy store.  Here it is again, if you missed it Wednesday:

If you or someone you know would like to purchase either of these patterns, they are available for sale in my Etsy shop, along with many other already-made items, such as yarn wreaths, diaper wreaths, tissue covers and more.
