A couple of weeks ago I started a fantastic course on confidence. I think as women and especially Mums, we tend to have confidence in everything and everyone but ourselves. The brilliant thing about this course is that half of each session is spent making something. We have all sorts lined up for us.
At first a few ladies couldn't figure out why the crafts part was there- but it is incredibly therapeutic!! I knit and cross stitch to relax. It is something I can sit with in the evening, in front of the telly and just veg.
And when you aren't working on a thousand things at once it is very rewarding when you finish something.
What do you guys think? Do you craft for a reason or because you find it relaxing?
