What are you most proud of? Finding the time to make stuff - by hand - even though, like most people, I have an uber busy life!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's only fabric, so if your stitching goes a bit awry, never fear, it can always be unpicked and re-sewn. Oh and only iron the paper side of iron-on adhesive - that other side is glue and whilst it's not impossible to get off an iron it's blinkin sticky stuff lols!
