I am somewhat trapped getting over a hip replacement. Can fill some of the day with the compulsory exercises, rests and short walks, plus a few chores are possible but find that sitting and reading is becoming unsatisfying. I fancy a sewing project to keep boredom at bay but can't think what I might try. It has to be something where any necessary materials can be sourced online as shopping is out for a few weeks yet. Any useful ideas, please

What about a cross stitch kit? Lots of choice from traditional to modern, easy to difficult. I've been doing a few Bothy Prints ordered from Amazon and everything apart from a pair of scissors (and embroidery frame if you use one) is included

You can get everything and anything on Amazon, patterns to sew clothes or items for the home. You can get fabric too so you could quilt a table runner or cushion. YouTube has some incredible tutorials. You can even make your own handbag.
Enjoy whatever you choose to do.

How about fat quarters and small projects. Plenty of books and fabrics online to get you started.
