Fractal Bookmark 268: Update Three and Meerkats !!!

I have finished page three of this bookmark finally!!!  It is looking really good but there was a lot of confetti so it took a while.  I am really impressed with this pattern, apart from the fact that it is something completely different, the pattern itself is really easy to follow.  I was worried with all the colour changes that it might be a bit confusing to read but each symbol is completely different so mistakes have been minimal.  

Page Three Finished:

And as a whole so far:

After I finished this I decided to take a break from my rotation and completed a mini kit that I bought from the Johnsons Craft website.  I took advantage of the beautiful weather and sat outside sewing this kit as lugging my larger pieces outside would have been a hassle.  This kit took no time at all to stitch up, and although I was sweltering in the heat I managed to complete it in a few hours.  I know I say this alot but I LOVE it.  I am a sucker for the meerkat adverts in the UK for and this pattern sums it up perfectly.

In the evenings I have returned to my rotation and have moved onto the fourth (and because it is a very partial page five) page of my HAED Christmas design.  I am still unsure of how I feel about this piece, to me it looks like a blurred photograph but I am persevering and made a good start so should be updating with a picture of the full pages pretty soon.  Happy Stitching Everybody!!!!

  2. I love your blog and the meerkat. I am also a sucker for meerkats. I guess I think they are cute. But not for a pet around my house. LOL
