I also need to decide on the personalisation that I want to add. Mr W (OH) graduates mid-July so I can't dilly dally too long over it and I can't pick out a frame until it's finished.
This morning I tried to do a magic ring with 6DC (uk) into it and it didn't turn into a nice circle but a small clumped mess but I'll try again at some point even if it is a bit frustrating.
For my birthday at the start of the month I also received a £10 Hobbycraft giftcard and with that I bought some lovely yarn. The Sirdar Snuggly is so damn soft! Even Mr W had a feel and said it was really nice. I'm not sure what they will be used for. The yarn was 3 for 2 so I was able to get a couple of DMC threads along with it.
