^ I really wish I enjoyed sewing/cross-stitch etc.  I think it's probably very therapeutic.  However, I just don't.   I'd rather do a jigsaw puzzle, a crossword or Suduko...

I quite like a jigsaw puzzle but hate crosswords and Suduko ... the thing about crafting is that there is something to show for it at the end ....

I used to have an electronic game of suduko but I've lost it.  But its on the Brain games for DS and I'm completed a fair few.  Got addicted at one point.  I think knitting it more therapeutic than cross stitching.  I find I can get very tense cross stitching, knitting is alot more relaxed.

Bev, I adore the one on the right, that's so cute! tender

I'm utterly rubbish at arts and crafts unfortunately... I once tried a 4 colour cross stitch for a girl I was babysitting and she ended up undoing my knots. w00t

Thanks Julia.  Made that one for a special friend who always sends me a home-made card for birthdays.  I'm not normally that creative but I'm getting better I think.

Very good.  I need to do a baby card but just don't seem motivated at the moment.
