I need ideas....

Post by brooksidepoultry » 25 Sep 2010, 19:33

Heya guys as we know winters on its way & I want to try & do something on those cold winter nights, but cant think of anything. I quite like croqueing (Sorry if its spelt wrong) but can only really do it with large wool, & have always wanted to do a patchwork quilt, I also like crostitch, basically I dont want something to hard because I have dyspraxia & sometimes find some of the fiddlier practical jobs hard & frustrating so any ideas? xx

my girls love cross stitching small things that can be made into birthday and xmas cards, you could do them and give them out throughout the year

scrapbooking or plagroup for grown ups as my dh calls it - have taken some lovely photos of my new chickens (including the sadly now deceased Clucky) and planning some layouts with journalling about our journey to chicken keeping :)
