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

Stacey I do cross stitch and love it. I love that one you did.
Right now I am doing small ones for Christmas cards. i went at it guns blazing but the past couple of days I seem to have lost interest - not sure why.
My baby became an angel and flew to heaven on 20th March.

Thank you Claire.
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.
Want to be more creative so really need to get motivated.

I don't really make anything but a mess! I tried to make wedding reponses for a couple of invites that we had received but it was such a failure that my OH could not even look at me without laughing!
I like to write essays... can that count... or shall I set up a new geeks thread?
