When I am relaxing and want to do something with my hands while listening to my latest audiobook, I usually bead. I am a huge peyote fan and make lots of bracelets (https://www.facebook.com/SplendidThingsSA).
Today though, I was in the mood for something else and while browsing some of the very old blog posts from my previous blog, I remembered my old cross stitch projects. How can you forget something like that! It has been more than a year since I touched my main project (which I have been stitching on and off since 2009 – I am sooooooo bad!). So off I went to the garage and started searching. Found it!
This is what it will look like in about another 10 years’ time . . . lol. I was really madly in love in cross stitching and it was my dream to do a HEAD project (Heaven and Earth Designs). The patterns are usually very intrigued and very expensive, so I was in heaven when I found this free (supposedly quick stitch) project. There are quite a few colours, so it took me some time to get it all together (had to buy from some overseas sites as I could not find all the colours here – and my budget forced me to do it over some months). Finally when I got all of it sorted, I started in September 2009. Since then life has gotten in the way and I stitch very rarely but today the bug got me again and I stitched for a few (very enjoyable) hours.
Here is where I am today (I wonder if I can iron out the creases?):
What do you do while you listen to your audiobooks?
