My other main hobby is doing tapestries. I never thought I would be able to do anything like it but after a bit of tuition from a close friend I gave it a try.
Again my husband thought I would get fed up before I had even completed one picture but I proved him wrong.
This I also find relaxing and I take pride in having them all framed and hung up around the house.
The pictures can also be done in wool, cotton or silk so this makes the work even more interesting.
