Manic bookmarks

 Long time followers of KenMaursCorner will recognise the crazy cats which have appeared over the years.....
and here they are again.
I love the "in your face" bright colours.....!
I have a feeling that maybe some crazy patch cats might complete the series.

Anyway, I have  already twelve bookmarks constructed......maybe it's time to move on: Autumn leaves
are waiting patiently in the wings for their turn.

I have a few ideas,particularly for the Autumn leaves, but whether I have sufficient time to try my ideas........

watch this space.

Bookmark mania

 The past week I have added yet more bookmarks to my collection.
I wanted to work within a two inch by
six or seven inch format before I decided which five bookmarks I would send to my swap partner, Melody.
My first attempts  resulted in rather bulky pieces in my opinion, so I gave myself permission to play.

My friends know that I don't like patchwork, because I find it difficult to match points and keep squares "square".

1...The turquoise piece is a sunprinted piece where sprigs of  Haresfoot fern were used in the process.
The reverse side features fussy-cut flowers appliqued to a dark green fabric.

2..Features fussy cur flowers again appliqued to a lavendar fabric.

3 and 4.. Gum leaves and gum nuts (or if you prefer Eucalyptus leaves and nuts

 on a greem Homespun.
Reverse sides also feature appliqued leaves.

5... Again you see appliqued flowers and leaves.

There are four or so other book marks which will appear in my next posting.
