As regular readers will know, I like to do a variety of things with my hands – although knitting is the main thing I also sew, and make chairs and quilts. The knitting has been in abeyance again during semester 2 of my Masters, and then it was simply too hot and sweaty to knit. But I did polish off making a stool:
made progress with a small footstool (still needs its stretchers and to be legged up):
and got around to painting and finishing the chair I made last summer.
And now I have a new hobby. Tried it for the first time on Saturday at a craft fair and I’m hooked. I’m learning to carve.
Now I just need some new tools. Oh, and some books. And another course. Happy days. 🙂
