I brought a magazine called 'Making' yesterday and it had a proper tutorial for making the cubes and a big chair to go in their room. Have a look in WHSmiths or Morrisons you can quickly read it haha Cool Very Happy

Thank you! Very Happy It's actually pretty big.
I had my appendix removed the year before last so brought it to pass the time. Took a good year of doing it on and off to complete, but I got there!

The pic I linked is not actually my one... I didn't stitch the flowers on the outside because I couldn't use the fabric they supplied, the holes were sooo small, picture would've ended up tiny Rolling Eyes

Onto my next challenge...! I have three cross stitches on the go right now. One for my parents I will eventually get round to finishing for an anniversary gift (is in July so have lots of time!), one for my folks again but as a christmas gift from Isabelle (is about grandparents) and another just for me Smile

Can't wait to do another big one like Diva again, though. Was so lovely seeing her come together. x

Thank you Claire. Smile
I got the cross stitch mag with the 8 free cards in the other day - not made them before so should be nice. Especially since I have very limited funds this year - people will have to put up with a sentimental gift instead!
Would love to make something for Isabelle. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect birth announcement kit. Rolling Eyes
Want to be more creative so really need to get motivated.
