"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."
-- Bruce Coville, The Last Hunt

What Will We Do...
... when e-book readers take over the world? It would be a shame never to tat another bookmark.
Both of these are designed by Jon Yusoff. On the left is "Two by Two" in Lizbeth Caribbean and Royal Blue, and on the right is "Chinese Coin Bookmark" in Yarnplayer's "Forest" HDT. I improvised tails for both of them, rather than try to make tassels, because I hate that.
One of these is for me, and one is for a friend. I'll let him pick which one he likes best. I suspect it will be the green one, which is a pity because that's my favorite too.
