Here's another from Martha Ess's Playing with Picots book.
This is the "Canopy" bookmark. I used Lizbeth color 159 Easter Eggs, and I think this pattern looks terrific in a variegated thread. I probably should have scanned it with a darker background, but I think the pastels look very fresh and pretty.
I usually put my tail at the top of the bookmark, but I wanted to do it without cutting the threads, so this is how it ended up. OTOH, it also looks pretty good upside-down.
When you turn it this way, my tail looks like a thistle head. Kind of cool, huh?
