"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."

Fandango Bookmark


Here's Jane's "Fandango" bookmark. The threads are Krystledawne's "Of Berries and Fairies" HDT and Lizbeth color 651 Medium Blue. The Lizbeth is a near match for the blue in the HDT-- they have so many shades of light blue, there had to be one that was close-- but if you look very closely you can see the difference; Krystle's blue is just a little bit clearer and richer. But, hey, close enough.

The tail is a combination of split rings, double core SSSR's, 1/1 zigzag chain, and lock stitch chain. I was going to put a "Fandango" motif on the end, but I realized it was long enough without that.

I still need to block it, as you can see from the curvature at the right end.

  1. Miranda, that is really lovely. The colours fall in just the right place and the tail is perfectly proportional to the rest of it. Very pretty.
