I have the craft skills of a walnut but DH is cut from different cloth. This is his latest achievement. We had to buy new seat covers for the car so he decided to personalise them by embroidering this design on each one.

A-mazing, how very patient, unique and useful.

Brilliant! Really, really brilliant!
Show us more please!

Wow, must have taken ages.

That is very striking and most original. Is it the size of the whole seat or just a little monogram sort of thing in a corner? It's difficult to get an idea of the perspective.

Wow! A design team for a car manufacturer is missing a very talented man here!

It sits on the front of the passenger seat where your shoulders go. It's about 3 inches in diameter with a bit more where the trees reach out.

It's based on us. We met on the internet and so didn't see each other often. He gave me a compass to represent our finding of each other despite the distance. We love to travel around the UK so the trees, mountains etc. represent the places we have been and the places we will go to in the future.

Ah, thank you so much for the explanation. It is beautiful, but at first I thought it was a wheel going up in flames, which was a bit worrying. So sorry!

You have a very talented husband.

WOW! Clever fella. Is it hand embroidered or machine embroidered? Lovely that it has personal significance for you both, he sounds very romantic.

That is amazing, such talent.

As one who finds it challenging (seriously) to thread a needle I’m very impressed at his embroidery skills!

So clever ! Takes me all my time to mend a small seam. A week to think about it first.

Gwyneth Mon 24-May-21 14:07:03

Stunning and so intricate.
