If you'd like to free your mind to relax and reflect, engaging both your hands with the needle, thread and canvas are a great way. Needlepoint canvases are usually somewhat stiffer than most cloth textures, which limit the finished products to such things as wall hangings, pillows, purses, and cases for glasses or scissors.
