Here's a little blackwork bookmark I made from a pattern I found on the internet. The flowers are pansies so I thought they would look nice in blue. It's backed with felt. I wanted to do blanket stitch around the edge but it's been so long since I've done it I had to look up a tutorial.  Embarrassed

It looks to me like there is a leaf missing?

A beautiful pattern. Good call on the blue.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thanks everyone. I saw this design on an Elizabethan blackwork site and really wanted to stitch it. It's elegant in it's simplicity, and just the right size for a bookmark.

Ack! Indeed. Oh, well, too late to fix it now. I gave it away today.  Cheesy
