Not all this stitching was done this weekend but I've got a decent amount in. My plan to focus on the table runner went out the window as I got caught up in stitching the panda bookmark.

The only complaint I have with this printed on fabric system is that not all the crosses are equal. There's a larger gap between stitches on the two cherries on the bottom but if I changed it, it would throw the rest out of whack.

This has been a quick stitch. I started it around Christmas but stopped once I finished the green in the bottom left corner and just picked it up in the last week or so. I'm over half way with it now. I'm probably going to stick with this until the end now :) 

I hope the rest of your week is good.

Stitching and Sewing!

I have an update on Travel Memories which is coming along quite nicely:

Travel Memories 11.02.15
I have added a few stitches to the table runner but not enough for a photo. If I can stick to my plan and don't get carried away on Travel memories then I would like the table runner to be my focus piece for at least the next couple of weeks,

Saturday, I had a day of cutting pretty fabrics ready to be turned into better things...Tuesday evening I made both of these carrier bag holders.

One is for a friend and the other for my Aunty. I made these using this fabulous pattern.

I need to get around to those two travel duffle bags that I've been meaning to make since August. Luckily the people who asked for them aren't in a rush and understand that I've been busy with university.

Hope you all have a good week and welcome to my new followers :)
