May Flowers, White Blossom Bookmark and Antique Cart

I was inspired to make more bookmarks this week with Mother's Day coming up. I think they make nice gifts for moms and readers. Bright and cheery, I love to make them. I am listening to Jane Erye and just on chapter five and I adore her already. For just being ten she has so much spirit and courage. Anxious to listen to more.

I've made this little design into a kit with the lovely Gentle Art flosses and fabric. It would be so fun to actually have an antique cart like this in the yard filled with flowers. I have a wrought iron basket that is kind of swirly like this and I plan on putting lots of flowers in it this year so it billows with color.

Tulips represent May flowers to me and the little grape hyacinths and Johnny-Jump-Ups too. All really easy to grow and no fuss, my favorite kind of flower. Lots of flowering and color for me. We've had lovely spring weather this week, hope you have too.

Please how did you make the lovely book marks, did you cover them? Pat

I love seeing how illustrators use their own set! And I love seeing such out of the ordinary ideas!
