Strawberry Bookmark

This post really represent summer. Strong sun. Strawberries. Lavender. Summer reading. The joy of reading next to a bush of lavender in full bloom, with a bowl of sweet and perfectly ripe strawberries. From time to time, passing a hand through the flowers to gather their lovely smell. Reading a few chapters, day dreaming, reading some more. Placing a beautiful bookmark between the pages.

I finished this bookmark last year using the cross stitch and following a pattern from a magazine. I had started it two years before. It was a work of patience, making tiny crosses with two threads, trying to follow the many color changes in such a dense pattern. But one day, it was done. I was happy to have completed it and I really love how it turned out.
