QOTD October 14th

Postby DeniseM » Oct 14th, '15, 9:12 am

This colder weather makes me want to craft! I was tired last night and so I couldn't be super creative but I wanted to work on something before bed. I got out a needlepoint project I have been working on. It was so nice and mindless. I would love how to learn to knit!

Is there a sort of crafty/mindless activity you enjoy when you are tired but want to do something with your hands?

Oh, Denise, I love needlepoint and cross stitch. I haven't done a project in years.
I like to crochet or embroider if I'm not too tired.
Usually I will slap a couple things into my "old school" scrapbook. I might have a newspaper article, a postcard, or something to stick in there.

I loved counted cross-stitch back before kids and scrapbooking!
Brush lettering or making cards for me.

Needlepoint, Xmas ornaments and a pillow. Knitted & crocheted a fair bit in my teens and 20's. Now scrapbooking has taken over my life.

I taught myself to crochet about 6 yrs ago; I still take it up in the winter months. I find it very meditative! Thanks for the reminder Denise I need to find some matching yarn for a scarf I started last year.

I want to learn needlepoint too -- one day!!
