My Creative Space- the secret to a happy marriage

A few weeks ago I started this cross stitch and I showed you a little bit. My friend is getting married on Saturday- cross everything for a lovely day as it is a beach wedding, we all have new frocks  (well Chef isn't wearing a frock, obviously, but the wedding is a bit posh - any excuse for me to buy a new dress) and I made this for them, more a gift for him - just so he remembers the secret to a happy marriage....

 you know, a little reminder, to hang in the bedroom...

For more Creative Spaces pop over to Kirstys lovely space.
Also thank you to everyone's kind words about my world map cushion- the cushion was on Bloesom kids last night/ today and it sold with orders for more. YAY!!
