For our April newsletter, we asked you to share with us your creative hobbies – those passions and pursuits that fired your imagination, and gave you a much-needed break from your research and analysis.

PhD student Nicole Kimball is an avid cross-stitcher, and she has sent in some amazing samples of her work! She writes:

“These are my cool little cross stitches – the Star Wars logo and Calcifer from ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’ (who is not finished yet). They are pretty easy to make and are great for winding down. They are also a great reminder that things don’t have to be perfect to be awesome.”

Nice one! Thanks Nicole!
