    I crochet too. I'll light a nice smelling candle, put a pitcher of iced tea on the side table, gather my project and remotes, stretch out on the chaise side of the sofa, turn on the tv or stereo, and go to work for a couple of hours.

    Mostly I make myself cardigans. I'm almost done with one, then I have two more in progress, and yarn to make two more over the summer.

    I knit too, but I knit so much more slowly than I crochet, so I stick to scarves and other small knitting projects mostly. But I've made myself sweaters and a skirt. It just took forever to finish them.

    I love to read, binge watch tv shows and bake. Although baking probably isn't considered lazy.

    Love the vulgar cross stitch. I used to cross stitch and crotchet.

    I cross stitch. The counting and recounting thing can happen with that too, depending on the design. So for me it's more like a half-lazy hobby. My most profane creation only contained the word "bitch." But I would love to do the one largenlovely shared! Here's a partially finished Anne Boleyn I've been working on:

    Aside from that, I play video games, overwhelm my puppies with torturous affection, or watch a wide variety of youtube videos. Sometimes I'll gravitate to binge-watching a series, if the bug bites hard enough.

    Odette - at first sight I thought it was Jane Seymour. Since Anne Boleyn is normally easily recognized as the only one of Henry VIII's 6 wives who was dark-haired. It looks great - as you see the time period & setting was easy to spot.

    I used to do regular embroidery, not so much cross-stich, when I had more situations were I sat somewhere as passive audience for longer stretches of time (school, university...).

    Today I knit every once now and then. I'm especially productive during international football/soccer tournaments. A group of friends will always get together to watch "important" games, that's always 2 hours - enough time to make a significant number of rows knitted.

    I forgot to mention Netflix. There's a Movie list and a TV Show list that I've been working on.

    I've noticed that you can try a variety of keywords to find what you are looking for .....like Freeform, Starz, Hallmark, Disney, Showtime, 80s, 90s, 60s, 70s, amc, a&e, academy award ..etc ....the results in the search vary somewhat ..... but it seems to help.

    There's just something relaxing about needlework, isn't there? It really is good for those drawn-out boring situations too.

    And thank you for the compliment! She does have dark hair, this cross-stitch Anne. That yellowy gold is the ridge of her gable hood. You can see a little tuft of brown hair poking out beneath it :p I have all the other wives too, but I decided to play favourites and start with Anne.

    I'd be so thrilled to find a Netflix-like service that allowed you to pay per series instead. I suppose there's Amazon Video. But it's too pricey here in SA.

    I've gotten into Perler bead creations lately. On the left are things I made for MrSensible and on the right, things for me -- mostly coasters. Oh, and a rogue bookmark I almost forgot to include.

    All my hobbies are lazy... :p

    Primarily, I enjoy writing fiction, drawing, playing guitar, video games and low budget horror movies. I'm brushing up on my drawing skills mostly, but I like writing small pieces of fanfiction from time to time.

    I still crochet and knit. And sew, make bead jewelry, scrapbook, make cards, mixed media crafts. All kinds of crafts. I like to sit and keep my hands busy.

    Amazon gave me my books read for 2018 .... 134 so my lazy hobby is definitely reading. I also have started painting again.

    Definitely playing on my laptop and watching TV/Netflix/Youtube. Occasionally, I'll get the urge to draw or write, but I've got an excellent desk for that, with a comfy desk chair.
