Close up of the bookmark, I used the leftover threads to make the tassel.
Gwen of Guava Gems left the 5000th comment on my blog. I wanted to send something suitable so I read through her blog and saw she was taking part in the Snooty Parrots SAL. I had this little parrot bookmark in my stash, a cover kit from Cross Stitcher magazine. I used their colours but changed the parrots around a little to make them more colourful. In the parcel I included a piece of this fabric, I couldn't find any with parrots on but this is very colourful. I also included a skein of Jodyri's Over The Rainbow thread which includes the same colours as the parrots and a Lucie Heaton booklet of Summer Stitching.
