One Hour Friday

I had no idea what to make for One Hour Friday today, so I just sat down at my machine, surrounded by my fabrics, and hoped that inspiration would strike. The Nate Berkus show was on (love that show!) and I got temporarily distracted by the "5 decorating must-haves". I think I was putting off deciding what to make. Then I looked around the room and saw books on the bookcase and it came to me - I needed to make a bookmark. The book I'm currently reading on my nightstand currently has an old supermarket receipt holding my page, but I'm a quilter - I should be able to do better than a receipt!

One hour later and I have my fancy little bookmark...




SO much nicer to look at than the receipt. And look - you can use it in different books and it still looks good!

I have just finished reading that Elm Creek quilts book. I'm looking for book 4 but my local library doesn't stock it!!

I don't want to buy it when I have vowed at the begining of this year not to buy any more books.

I love the bookmark - its fun to have special things like that that no one else has. Also, thanks for the tutorial on the stems. I do the same sort of thing - love those bias bars.
