I am absolutely hooked on Pixelhobby. I purchased the German Shepherd at the SECC last year, and also have the dolphin one which I have yet to start.
I have so far done 3 of my own designs, using the downloaded software, and am thoroughly enjoying it.
I have even got a 14 and 15 year old interested in it!
It is a great hobby and one which I know I will continue with for a long long time.
