Research shows that starting a craft or hobby is not only great fun, it's also good for mental and physical health. These days our lives are all one big deadline; we rush around trying our best to stay on top of everything, which is most definitely not good for our mental health. Starting a craft is a simple way to sit back and relax and take your mind off the chaos that surrounds us, even if it's only for an hour or two each week.
Studies undertaken by several large crafting companies show that almost 50% of Americans have found that crafting can be an excellent way to relieve stress during difficult times. One craft that is easy to learn and brings joy upon completing a project, is cross-stitching. There are so many beautiful examples of cross-stitching on the Web and we found a selection of beginner cross-stitching kits that you can buy from Amazon - and have delivered to South Africa - if you like the idea of starting this as a new hobby.
What is cross-stitch?
Embroidery has once again become a popular craft, as many people turn to this as a way to relieve stress, make some extra income, or purely for the satisfaction of completing a project they have made. But before you go headlong into embroidery, cross-stitch is a simple embroidery method that lets you use 'X' or cross-stitches to create an image or pattern. It might not be as delicate as embroidery, but if you are just starting, it's a great way to become introduced to the basic of embroidery.
