I never thought I would ever take embroidery as a hobby. Whilst I learned cross-stitching back in uni and finished a few small projects, I abandoned stitching eventually in favour of new interests when I started working.
Last year, I dabbled in adult colouring to pass the time and for the most part, to take my mind away from the stresses of daily living, including completing projects at work, finding my way through corporate life, and putting together documents for my visa applications. However, it eventually lost its appeal in part because it did not work for the purpose that I had initially intended and in part because it became a boring and tedious activity. I still keep a pack of colouring pens and a couple of colouring books handy, but I don’t know when I’ll have the interest again to complete even a single page.
