:welcome: to the forum jacky :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

With you trying to use the bold function, increase the size of the text, and changing the colour you were using, you post was a bit of a jumble of things that had only half worked, so I've removed them.

This Linky explains how to upload a photo onto the forum directly, so no need to use a hosting site such as Flickr or Photobucket. If you do have an account on such a site tho, you can still use the image codes to add pictures.

When you have a mo, if you :penguin: :penguin: :penguin: :penguin: :penguin: to Where To Say Hello and tell us a little about yourself and where you are in your FibroQuest, it would be lovely to "meet" you :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

I love to cross-stitch and knit as well. It's great when you're having "one of those days" where you're more sore than usual. Mind you, I've had days where I'm in quite a lot of pain that I can't even do any stitching :( Those days I just have to relax and either read or watch a bit of telly because I'm just too sore.

I started doing cross stitch again earlier this year after not doing any for several years - and had forgotten how relaxing and therapeutic I find it.

I'm currently working on a Les Miserables pattern for my daughters 21st birthday in November. So it's a case of stitching in secret any opportunity I can, and also a couple of small projects so she doesn't suspect what I'm up to xxx

I have been doing cross stitch since I was a child (am 43 now) I also do a lot of knitting as well.
Am hoping that now having fm wont stop me from doing these, I do at times struggle with heavier knitting but have tended to persevere with it.
I do also make items that are for sale

If anyone would like to see any of my work I have a page on Facebook called knit stitch, feel free to take a look or add me as a friend :)
