Jane Eborall's Flowery SCMR Bookmark--motif # 4

Hello again!!!

Gloomy weather and various episodes of sicknesses (among my family) are the factors that were responsible for letting me post this any earlier. With all these limitations, I'm still proud of myself that I was able to finish what I started. Not to mention, it was full of acute challenges. I would portray it this way because some of the techniques used in making this bookmark were either completely new to me or were brushed by me vaguely--basically I don't master them!!!

Coming to back to my pick this time, I challenged my self to tat a Bookmark that is created by Jane Eborall--hence, the name. Here is the entire pattern that I got from her website. I should applaud her for great detail in here pattern. Neophyte's like me would really appreciate such efforts and be less reluctant to try new stuff. Also, in pry of completion of this project, I should thank Marilee (Yarn player) to feed me through helpful insights of hiding ends. I followed the technique she shared with a great success in this project.

Lot's that I said, I forgot to mention that my dedication to this project would also be indicated by choice of color!! I was completely blown by the color scheme the Jane used for this project so I took an extra step to use same colors!!! I'm anxiously waiting for you all to comment on this piece of work!!!! Highly appreciate!

I'm SO flattered that you managed to follow this pattern. It wasn't the easiest to design either!! I have a page of tips for starting most things without a knot here just in case!! http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~nickeb/StartSCMRNoKnot.pdf
