One thing I really miss about being stationed in England is all the small cross- stitch kits I could find in the various gift shops. If I want to find such kits now, then I either have to go online or drive at least an hour away to find them.
I bought this bookmark last year and started it soon after. My enthusiasm for working on it disappeared after I made an error and had to pull out a bunch of stitches while doing my best to salvage as much thread as possible, because I wasn’t sure if there was enough in the kit. Turned out that there was, thankfully. Anyway, this bookmark was set aside after that. I’m trying to finish some of my already started projects before working on anything new, though, so I eventually came back to this bookmark.
There’s actually another bookmark that needs to be finished, too. That’s next on my list of small projects to finish. I hope to post that soon.
