It’s sometimes very difficult to know what gifts to get people for their birthday, Christmas etc. I try not to do the panic buy just so that I have something to give. I feel that giving something you have made, that you’ve put love and care into can be a really good option. However, that means you have to partake in forward thinking which is what I did recently.
It was due to be my sister-in-law and her husband’s 40th wedding anniversary and they love all things Disney so I made them a cross stitch picture to cover both likes.
It was really quite simple to do and looks really good adorning a wall in their bedroom. And more importantly it was a unique gift amongst all of the 40th etched drinking glasses, chocolates and prosecco they received.
I purchased the kit from e-bay and although I am competent at cross stitching it fit what I wanted. I would recommend the kit for a newcomer to cross stitch.
