An idea for a bookmark after popular Confucius quote:"You cannot open a book without learning something".
Size: 109×36 stitches
Thе "Confucius Bookmark" pattern is fairly small and is typically stitched in a day or two. 14-count Aida cloth should work well for this particular pattern. Count measures how many stitches can be made in one inch as determined by the size of the fabric weave. The stitched pattern will be about 7¾×2⅝ inches or 19.8×6.5 centimeters. Remember to include additional space around the margin of the Aida cloth.
Floss: 4 colors
Very Dark Emerald Green
Light Emerald Green
Medium Burnt Orange
4 different colors of DMC floss are necessary to complete the "Confucius Bookmark" pattern. An approximate conversion table is provided for other brands of floss such as Anchor, J&P Coats, Gamma, Ariadna and Madeira. Note that some of the required floss numbers are unavailable for Puppets.

Everyone has a hobby or two, you do it everyday, or use it everyday and you love doing it. I enjoy creating my own cross stitch patterns and sharing them with everyone who likes this hobby. Happy stitching!
