Why I Am So Bad At Blogging 3 - Crafts

This is the third installment of my "Why I Am So Bad At Blogging" series. You will notice they are currently the only posts on my blog, but more about that particular situation next time. It's the reason this post is short.

As someone with autism, I have certain "special interests". You've already seen two and this post will cover the third (although there are more little ones and, of course, writing is the biggest). You should notice a theme running through all my interests, and that is creating things. This interest is the most overt in that respect as it looks at my crafts. I'm piling quite a lot under this one, so bear with me.

My biggest love in this section is, of course, my art, of which I enclose a selection below. It's been my second love (next to writing) for a long time and I can't see my interest waning anytime soon. One of my biggest regrets is that I don't have the skill I would like, but it brings me joy and that's the most important thing. I usually paint with acrylic on canvas.

The second part of this category is my cross stitch. I don't actually have any photographs of this as I tend to give it away a lot. Here is a selection of what cross stitch looks like. I have done them all myself but these are not the actual ones I've done. The one I'm working on at the moment is the dragon.

Then there are the soft toys

And finally just general stuff
