I can spin and knit, sew and tat. I even gave long-and-short embroidery a good stab. But give me glue and paint and I am immediately less competent than most 3-year-olds. Yesterday I went to a Women's Institute meeting, where one of the members demonstrated how to make 'zonkis' - wonderful animals and people made from styrofoam balls, pipecleaners, feathers etc. Very clever and cute. But don't ask me to make one! This, in case you're wondering, is supposed to be a sunflower.
