    I am thinking of doing a class on the board similar to what Cute did.

    so far I have decided to have a sign up for 2 wks? and then post a portion of the lesson every Sunday for 3 wks.

    There won't really be a timetable. You can do it in your own time and even follow along and do it later. I just want to get a feel for if we have enough brave souls who would like me to lead you through making a bookmark and making them with one of my "Blocks". I am thinking the Drunkard's Path but if that is too scary then I have several others we can use. The design will be my original design.

    So if you are interested let me know. If you have any questions or if I need to change anything I am more than willing to accomadate.

    Here is one design I was thinking of doing. It reminds me of chess pieces. Look at where the dark and light meet. This may look hard but it isn't with my method!!
    The only curve piecing is in sewing a circle onto a background and you can do that my way or you can do it using a zigzag around the edge of the circle.

    We would be using a 1 1/2" template. They are free to anyone who doesn't have one yet.

    Honestly a beginner can do this!!! It isn't as hard as it looks!!

    I would love to learn to do bookmarks. I'd like to have as many bookmarks as I have books.
