I Gopher For A Good Book

I cross stitched this book mark and sewed it to a cloth backing. I wanted the cute little eye glasses to stand out, so I added a gold thread in with my floss thread. This gave the eye glass frame a gold wire effect, which I like. Below is a close up of that, although the camera does not pick up the gold very well. You can click on any of the photos to get an enlarged view.

wow! cool!
I really love cross-stitching , especially with my mom...sadly we stoppped because of too many things to do besides it. and schoolwork for me too..
I wish mom gets to frame all of our projects, but since frames are not that affordable here, i don't know...

great work..hope to stitch sometime again :)

Do you have this pattern available? I'd like to make some for my book club friends.

Hi.
I was wondering where you found the pattern for this. My mom made this bookmark for me, but sadly I have lost it. Now we can't find the original pattern. If you could tell me that would be so great.
Thanks.
