For those who know me well, you will know that I am one of these people who just can’t sit and do nothing. Even when watching a film (unless it’s in a cinema), so I have to keep myself busy.
I love completing jigsaws. I have many 1000 piece jigsaws, a few 2000 piece ones and I have a 6000 piece jigsaw – one of the most difficult jigsaws I have ever completed. Amongst these, I have completed some challenging ones, but with much fewer pieces. For example, a 250 piece jigsaw, with each piece made from clear plastic.
In November 2018, I taught myself to crochet – I needed a different hobby. After watching many videos on youtube by Bella Co Co (would highly recommend her if you decide to learn), and many mistakes and difficulties, I have come to love this hobby.
Cross stitch is another hobby of mine, which require little concentration, and it helps me to relax.

Needle felting (or felting) is something that I have recently found quite interesting, and I have been intrigued as to how it is done. I have taught myself the basic of this as a kit was bought for me. I feel there is much more to it than just repeatedly stabbing felt with a needle.
