KirstyW I believe that everyone is good at art in their own way. When it comes to art, the only limit is your imagination.

Wow that’s a lot of hobbies I struggle to find time for one. Some times I start a hobby but then I soon give up

Strangely enough I do both of those. I love knitting baby clothes as they are finished quickly and always look so nice.

I have collected stamps for nearly 60 years but have recently passed a lot on to my grandsons.

I used to enjoy cross stitch alot when my kids were little, Not done any in a long while tho. I enjoy reading alot but dont get to read as much as I would like. Last year I upcycled a couple of pieces of furniture we had rather than buying new & discovered I quite enjoy doing that. I have another piece I want to do to go in our landing when I have time.

My eldest daughter used to like crosstitch when she was at school,but seems to have gone by the wayside now shes 39😂 I am very good at hand sewing items and would make more stuff but not got time much for hobbies now, i like to read though.my daughters like to upcycle stuff though,but not as a hobby,more as to reuse items that they would have had to buy otherwise.

Caz2 I still have some CS kits I never got round to doing so I could get back into it, I just seem to have less time these days or when I do have time theres other things I end up doing.

Faye1 Yeah do, It can really inject life into an old treasured item & save money. Pinterest is a good place for inspiration if your thinking of trying it for yourself.

My grandma tried to teach me when I was young. I can manage a straight line like a scarf but that’s about it

Painting sounds nice and relaxing actually. I bet it’s quite therapeutic

My favourite hobbie is to make hand made cards. I manly make them for Birthdays and I think it makes it a little more special since it takes a lot of time to make them

I started making birthday cards this year and people really like them. They are basic though, mostly with washi, but I enjoy making them

I don't have much time for hobbies and it's difficult when you are away working. I guess, though I like swimming. Not that I get much chance to do it but the kids love it and I like taking them to the baths.

Lol does constantly being on the LD site count? I used to make things, especially with excess materials and fabrics, but haven’t got much time these days

I love knitting and making cards. I have to admit to a bit of obsession with anything crafty and I am a huge hoarder of all things crafty. My granddaughter loves coming for the Weekend and saying can we have a look in your craft room and have a crafty day.
