Inspirational bookmarks

I have been reading so much lately.  I know, more people are doing like books on cds, books on Kindle.  But, I still love to cuddle up with some good books.  And, the bookmarks never really were great to stay in the books.  So, I made some for myself and now I am loving them so much, I am making several different kinds.

But, for these, I dipped into my stash of vintage linens, laces, old quilts that have holes all in them and repurposed some of these wonderful treasures into bookmarks.  Because I guess, they are fabric, they tend to stay put.  And, they are big; they are about 2.75 x 6 inches.

Here are a few.
