In Search of a New Hobby...Can you help?!

I need a new hobby ASAP! I'm bored. I need a new challenge. I really like redoing furniture but I don't really need anything else. Well that's not true there are a couple pieces out there I'd like to work on, but until I find them I've got nothing. I was working on cross stitch but since little one ate the needle I'm scared to death to work on that around them! I did the jewelry thing before my wedding and I made all my bridesmaid's necklaces and earrings. That was fun but not something I'd like to do again unless I have a specific project to work on...and I don't. I put a puzzle together that was fun while it lasted. I love reading all the crafty blog posts I think there are so many talented people out there. I have a lot of scrapbook stuff and a honeymoon trip that I should work on but I'm not really in the mood right now. See idea's don't always just come to me. I thought maybe knitting might be a good time passer...but it seems like it would be hard to teach myself. Those needles scare me less because I'm pretty sure she can't eat one of those...maybe not impossible but much safer in my mind. I'm about to search the local craft stores to see if they have any classes coming up. I just thought I might turn to all you thoughtful bloggers and see if you have any suggestions....


  1. I tought myself how to knit and crochet! If your interested, you may want to take a single knitting lesson so you can learn how to cast on, knit and purl, but after that you should be good to go on your own!

    You would be amazed at how relaxing knitting can be!

  2. I have been trying to teach myself to cake decorate. I have several magazines and I'm slowing learning. It's so fun, maybe you could give that a try!
