Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend :)
Last week I saw a really cute blog post about a tulip motif pattern. My blogger reader isn't working today and I can't find the blog where I found the link to this pattern :( But the pattern is available for free download on the Red Heart website! The pattern is for a throw but I just used the tulip idea and made a bookmark.
After making the main bookmark I reattached the yarn and made a chain:
This way the bookmark can be used in smaller, paperback books and larger, hardback books. The main body of the bookmark can be put inside the book and the chain on the outside or vice versa.
I really didn't fancy weaving in lots of ends so I carried the yarn through the work as I was crocheting, so in the end I only had to weave in 6 ends!
Other than crocheting, this weekend we went walking around Madrid and saw that the old municipal history museum has been reopened. It had been covered up for ages and is finally open and on show again. The facade is so pretty:
There were some really pretty sunsets this weekend too.
The photo isn't great, but it was such a pretty afternoon!
