I recently found out that January is National Hobby Month. So I thought I’d share my many, and varied hobbies!
I love to crochet! I have been crocheting ever since I remember! I don’t remember learning, or who taught me, maybe my mother?? I remember carrying a bag of yarn to school when I was in like 3-5th grades. I would spend recess “finger crocheting”. Ever tried that? It’s a fun way to keep kids busy. lol And they love all the chains they make!
That’s a teddy bear in the making. I am using this free teddy bear pattern.
These are the crochet hooks I use. They are so comfortable to hold. I haven’t experienced any rough spots on the hooks to snag the yarn like I have with other hooks in the past.
If you are a beginner crocheter, or you want to start, this is a great book to learn how to crochet with.
January is National Hobby Month!
I was so blessed by my children a year ago. They all chipped in and bought me a Cricut! I literally cried when I opened it. So I’ve been having fun slowly learning how to use it. I’ve made cards, mugs, and of course shirts! This is the one I have.
My latest project was these matching gingerbread man shirts for my husband and I. We were judges in a gingerbread house contest at church. We won the year before, so we judged this year. It was so much fun!
Basically, I love any kind of crafting!
Reading is another way I love to spend time. Here’s what I’m currently reading, in addition to my Bible.
And these e-books. And, yes, I do have a book problem. lol
I love to cook and bake, too! I started when I took Home Ec in Junior High. I remember the first time I picked a recipe from a cook book and followed it by myself. It was probably around the same time. I was baby sitting my little brother, and there were no snacks in the house. GASP! lol So I found a sugar cookie recipe that didn’t require cookie cutters and made those. They came out great! That’s how I remember it anyway. lol We all ate them, so I guess they were alright! lol
Share with me some of your favorite hobbies. I’m always on the look out for something new to try!
