Your bookmark turned out GREAT! That is the one pattern I have learned to make with thread, and I love it! I have to use a bigger thread and hook than the pattern suggests...#5 perle cotton and a size 5 Boye steel hook (1.90mm). It's easier on my eyes and hands. I found that thread with the DMC embroidery threads, and it comes in a lot of pretty verigated colors. The bookmark is a little bigger, but it's still a good size.
