I got a bit of money over my birthday/Easter and got this super useful lap desk! It's probably meant for in an armchair or sofa, but I've been using it for when I can't get out of bed 😁

I'm always so so bored when I'm stuck in bed, but I've started cross stitch recently! I'm lucky that I don't tend to get hand/finger pain on my medium pain-days, so it's been great having a hobby that I'm not too spaced out or painful to do! ☺️☺️ I always feel so much better about myself when I feel productive. I tend not to use hoops if it doesn't all fit, as it's a pain to constantly adjust where it is, and my aida is sturdy enough without honestly.
I have a few ideas that will probably need one though, so I have some spare in case.

Does anyone else do cross stitch? Do you have any tips, fun patterns or pictures? 😁

Here's what I'm working on, as a birthday gift for my mum in law next month! I'm still learning, but I'm proud of my progress!

That's lovely, the beauty of hobbies is that it takes our minds off the pain for a while. I have a sewing sheId where i make dolls clothes and sell them in my internet shop, it is such a good distraction.'

that's really nice, I think I tried cross-stitch a few years ago.

My aunt did a cross stitch when she was in Oregon. It's like a 4x4 and framed. She's selling it now because it reminds her of her late husband.

That is so pretty. I use to cross stitch, loved it.... my hands are so bad now holding the small needle is hard to do and my eye sight is not the best anymore. I have lots of finished and unfinished pieces, which I will cherish. I like your little desk too.

That's really cool!
I don't do cross stitch I'm currently working on knitting a scarf for my boyfriend's mom.
