hand-stitched "blackwork" bookmarks: custom

Item Name & Description: Two bookmarks hand-stitched with blackwork, which here refers to a form of embroidery traditionally done in black thread. Already-stitched bookmarks are available for bid here and here. This auction is for bookmarks stitched in colors of the winners' choosing in one of ten available patterns (see behind the cut).

Starting Bid: $5. The top two bidders will both receive a bookmark.

Notes: delivery by Priority Mail within US; delivery method outside US to depend on cost. Completion may take up to a month, depending on whether I have the materials on hand and whether I have stitched the chosen pattern before (blackwork is ideally reversible, that is, identical front and back; this requires a fair bit of spatial planning that is emphatically not my strong point).
