when ds1 was small, I got into card making but had to stop that as he got bigger as I used to work at the dinner table and just leave it all out. Then as he got bigger & more mobile, I wasnt able to leave all the bits out anymore.

Now I do quilting/sewing. I did a couple of courses to get me going, followed a few blogs and I have now made 6 quilts in the last year! It is actually very quick & easy to make a quilt top, but the hard work is the actual layering (basting) and quilting. Try crazymom, or red pepper quilts for some modern inspiration.

You could also try cross stitch or "stitcheries" If hand sewing is you "thing".
