There are so many hand crafts I'm itching to try; for now, time forces me to be content with crocheting, some very basic knitting, and occassional candle-making, but I can always hope I will have more leisure in the future, right? :-) I'm also doing some very simple beading now, with Shira, which we both greatly enjoy.
Here are some other hobbies I would love to acquire:
Sewing - making my own clothes, clothes for my family, and decorative pieces is a dream! Endless possibilities. This website is by a Jewish lady who makes lovely items, and also gives sewing classes.
Quilting - such a cozy hobby and makes for great gifts.
Bead embroidery - so impressive!
Pottery - my husband and I once fell in love with a house of a relative, which was filled with unique, handmade pottery items. It created a magical atmosphere.
And perhaps most of all I would love to perfect my knitting. It really is a pity that I did not learn to knit very well while I still lived with my mother and grandmother, who are both very good knitters (although now somewhat out of practice). But... I will be waiting for a chance to present itself, then seize it!
