    Hobbies? You mean the things one does when one has free time? :unsure: :wink:

    Well, once upon a time when I did have free time--and I'm seriously trying to find some on a regular basis--I liked to:

    Design and sew. Primarily clothing, but have segued into furniture recovering and home decor.

    Music. Performed with a semi-professional chamber ensemble. Translation: professional quality musicians who work in other professions but have a passion for music and make just enough at it to cover the costs! Hope to form an amateur ensemble in the future--just for fun!

    Art. Studied art when younger, now enjoy abstracts rather than realistic painting. I'm watching coupons/sales for a huge canvas for the foyer. :thumbs_up:

    I also used to do crossword puzzles and am trying to get back into that to exercise a different part of my brain! I want to try sudoku (spelling?) when I have time to figure out what it's all about. By then, it probably won't be around any more!

    Don't really collect anything but tend to have a significant fabric and notions stash. Sewing time tends to be around 2:00 a.m. and the fabric stores--what few we have these days--aren't open!

    Some day I'll have time to do everything again. For now, have to be content with bits and pieces as time permits. :sigh;

    I guess my favorite hobby is kayaking. Here is my younger brother and me in a downriver race (ok, we stopped for the photo!:p).

    :cool:

    SallyT makes customs (Disney (or other) character-inspired clothing) for her daughter. If you haven't found it, there's a thread around here she started a few days ago. Her creations are gorgeous!

    Have a feeling your bows are in the same category! :)

    Fantastic, you're very talented :yes: I would never have guessed the bracelet was made of ring pulls either, amazing creativity. Well done.

    Well, I don’t have a specific hobby. I do whatever comes to my mind during leisure time. Mostly I do read books, listen songs, surf net or sleep.

    Hmm difficult question. :lol:

    I love to collect Disney orniments but haven't bought any in a while. I have a small collection of pins which I add to every now and then. And we have a joint collection of vinyalmation which we started last year.

    Outside of Disney I have recently joined a dog class and me and Oreo (my dog) go weekly to this class. She has just passed her first level and were now moving up to the next class. Eventually, I'd like to get into agility or flyball but that's a long way off!

    I have a season ticket for my local football team, West Bromwich Albion. We have just finished our most sucessful season in the last 30 years (and in my lifetime) so that has been cool to watch.

    I also have a big passion for music and broadcasting. Up until very recently I had my own radio show on a local hospital radio station which broadcast across the hospital but also across the local area. Sadly, we were shut due to budget cuts. Since then I tried to set up a podcast in relation to my football team but there wasn't the demand for it so that was stopped.
