Finally! Everything is done according to the pattern. The inconsistent tension is obvious in the middle diamond and in the ground surrounding the bottom diamond. I noticed it in other places too but I think this is as good as it gets for me, right now.

I don't like that there is a cloth stitch border on the sides but not the top. The pattern actually leaves those threads hanging at the sides but I didn't particularly like that either.

I'm currently tacking these down on card stock and then putting that in a protective sleeve. They were in the sleeve but it was all of them and they were getting crowded, slipping and sliding around. I didn't want to actually attach them to anything but it's the only way to keep them secure. I hope that someday I can pull these out and MARVEL at how much better I am. LOL! Don't hold your breath.

I guess I haven't printed out the pricking for the next and last bookmark in this particular book. Maybe tomorrow.

Your bookmark is beautiful, Gina! I agree with you about the cloth stitch border. Although, without the border at the top, it kind of reminds me of a raspberry smoothie... yum!
