Royal Paris Table Runner

This is how far I am with the table runner:

Royal Paris Table Runner 19.05.15

I was gutted the other week as I had to unpick the dark shade in the leaf which when you have little time to stitch is frustrating. Saying that, my last exam is tomorrow so I'm hoping to get a lot of crafting done. I need to pull my finger out to get the two table runners and one of the duffle bags done by the end of June!

I'm stitching this little guy up for a card but his nose is one block out of place.

Minerva Craft's eBay shop had some £100 lucky dip bags for £10. I've bought a cross stitch bag (now sold out) as well as a sewing bag. I got some nice goodies in the cross stitch bag, sadly the sewing bag was not as good but there were items that I can put to use. I picked up a couple of other bargains from eBay...I will admit that I will be on a stash ban from July to September.

Amazon had a half price sale on some Design Works kits so I caved...I'll post a photo when they arrive.


  1. Great stitching on your projects, sorry to hear the frog has been around. Great stash as well.

  2. Great new stash! Minerva's used to be my LNS - I was so upset when she stopped framing to concentrate on her Internet business.

  3. Lovely stashing! Beautiful stitching too. Can't wait to see that tablecloth when it's finished! :D

  4. I always had the worst time with stamped cross stitch...I try to avoid it now. Anyone that can do it has my utmost respect! Great job!

  5. I really do like that table runner :)
    Great new stash, you found some great items!
    Hope the exam went well & now enjoy your stitching time!!

  6. Great new stash Emma! Hope you can make the most of your crafting time once the last exam is out of the way!
