A Newfound Hobby

I’ve been reading that doing jigsaw puzzles can be a good stress reliever.

With all the stress I’ve been feeling recently I thought I’d give it a go. Never one to start small and work up I decided on a 1500 piece puzzle, a castle. It took around two weeks to complete, and here is the result:


I did find it quite relaxing, except for the horrible moment I thought there was a piece missing; there wasn’t. Clumsy me had knocked it onto the floor. I listen to music whilst puzzling, and find that very relaxing too.

Have decided to try a 2000 piece puzzle next and so I’ve just bought this one


Hello and Welcome

I’ve decided to start a new blog.

All my cross stitch related things can be found here.

Everything else is going to be here. No idea what that’s likely to include yet so please bear with me while I get sorted out.
