Introducing Project Monday
Project Monday is the very exciting name I have given my posts about current projects. When do you get them? You guessed it, Mondays.
I have been experimenting with a range of crafts, from card making to cross stitch, which means there will hopefully be something for everyone in this segment! Soon, I’ll be announcing the craft challenges I have set myself, so you can have a go at them at home! If you want to get a sneak peak at what I’m working on, I post to my Instagram fairly regularly (check out the cat photos too!) Now, on to today’s post:
Puppy and Kitten Bookmarks
This week, we’re starting off with a very overdue birthday present for my two youngest sisters. Like me, they both love animals; Amy is studying to be a vet and Jessie is studying animal behaviour. They’re also avid readers, so when I spotted this pair of cross stitch bookmarks on holiday in Brugges, it seemed like perfect presents for them! I swapped out the colours of the paw prints on the pattern for their favourite colours to make them a little bit more personal.

The kit has taken a little bit longer than expected – work always gets in the way! I’m hoping to get the second one finished today, before backing them in felt and giving them to my sisters.
