Books & Roses BOM - final two patterns...

 


Today I have the final two Books & Roses BOM stitchery patterns for you. 

Have you enjoyed this year's free block (bookmark) of the month? I have heard of many ways the patterns have been displayed, and not just as bookmarks, but inside quilt blocks and also on greeting cards. How have you been completing them?



Bookmarks are such an easy gift to post away in a letter, a card, or tucked inside a book - and if you're a reader yourself, you know you can never have too many bookmarks. 

The November bookmark is smaller than usual, and that's due to having only a tiny scrap of the beautiful fabric which adorns the top and bottom of the stitchery. This little bookmark is just right for my small Spurgeon devotional.



On your pattern sheet for December I have no included '2023' but you could easily write it in yourself. It was just as I was stitching it that I thought what a nice way to begin next year with an appropriate bookmark - and I even used some pretty fabric from my new free block of the month, The Virtuous Wife. 



Use the link below to download the double pattern.

I awoke with a nasty head cold this morning, my first in ages, so I wanted to get these patterns out to you while I'm still functioning. Unfortunately my nose is now a constant drip, a migraine is brewing and my throat feels like razor blades are embedded within....so I shall sign off and take my leave to go rest and recover with plenty of homemade cold tonic and hopefully some bowls of soothing chicken soup. 

God bless you all,

Thanks for the bookmarks, they are very pretty. I might have to make a couple. It's always lovely to cook with the grandchildren, passing down the traditional recipes from past generations.

Thank you for all these delightful bookmarks this year. I like the idea of putting them into a quilt. I’m truly looking forward to your Virtuous Wife series. I’ve loved your creativity and your attitude toward bring a homemaker for a very long time. May you feel better soon and have a very happy Christmas as you share the true meaning of Christmas with your family and friends and all you meet! It is so important that we do this. So many have no idea why we celebrate Christmas and Easter!

Thank you so much dear Jennifer, for all the beautiful bookmarks you have gifted us this year. I just love them all & these two are stunning as well. I have just finished an earlier design for a friend who loaned me a pile of books to read. I hope the nasty cold has moved on by now - they seem to be going around over here too with lots of sick friends. Take care my dear friend Xxxx
