First round of bookmarks

The first set of bookmarks have all been sent out and I believe they have all been received. Here are all the beauties. Fantastic job ladies!

Connie for Bonnie:
This bookmark was made using DMC size 80 in variegated pinks. The pattern is by Ellen Lai aka Singtatter the name of the bookmark is Dancing Kristine.
Bonnie for Lynn:
She made Kersti's Jessica Bookmark in yellow, which was the requested color, size 80 DMC thread. She included one of the flower paperclips that she likes so much and the printed patterns for both. Bonnie wasn't sure about working with size 80, but now that she has this one completed she's wondering if she might get addicted to it. Since most of her HDT is in 20 and 30, that could be a serious problem.
Lynn for Cathy:
She had difficulty with getting her bookmark to turn out the way she wanted it to, so she re-did it, then when the pictures were sent they wouldn't open, so we had to wait for the pictures from Cathy.
Cathy for Abby:
She borrowed from Ruth's Celtic snowflake 2008 design. Since the next two designs she tried to make didn't work out, she thinks she might just have to repeat this one for the rest of the round robin.


Abby for Connie:
The pattern is by Debbie Arnold and she used Opera size 20 -which seems finer than other size 20's. She tried it out in one of her old,old, old books and it was just fine for delicacy."

(Just for reference, Opera is a soft 3 cord thread and the size 20 is more like a traditional 30 in 6 cord thread, sort of like 25 if there was such a thing.)
