Sewing!! I have a dozen burlap coffee sacks that need to be turned into pillows and ornaments for Christmas gifts. I have some canvas that I need to stencil and then turn into a pillow too. Then I have just a few more things to do to finish Henry's christening gown. I can't wait to get my Christmas present from my mom. It's a set of books about historical clothing that includes patterns based on Renaissance portraits. I am so excited to make my own replica gown. I love seeing a piece of fabric turn into something beautiful!
Writing!! I need to finish the second draft of my novel. I did NaNoWriMo this year, but wrote fanfiction and set my novel aside. If I had a whole day to just write, I'm sure I would make headway on my novel.
GEOCACHING! I found 612 caches last year. I think I've logged 3 this year. I can't wait til spring when I can slather sunblock on Morgan and bring her with me. I guess my days of finding caches 20 feet up in trees are over.
Seriously... If I had a free day I would curl up in my bed and sleep. After I had slept as much as I could I would probably go watch a movie. Or watch one at home. An uninterrupted movie where I could focus all of my attention on it would be nice. Lol.
Oh my gosh, so many hobbies I'd like to have time for. I love cooking and baking, and I think it would be amazing to be able to take classes so that I could be better. I'm not interested in a culinary career, I just enjoy doing it for my friends and family.
I'd love to re-learn how to play the piano - I wish I hadn't fought against my mom on that as a kid. And I'd love to learn to play the violin, it's such a beautiful instrument.
Gardening! For the longest time we lived in the desert, so no gardening there. Now we live with my parents and they're very particular about their gardening, so I'm not allowed to plant the things I want. Next year we'll finally have our own home in a climate that allows for gardening, and I can't wait to dig in and get dirty!
I'm totally obsessed with doll houses and miniatures. Before we moved here, I started building my own doll house and crafting miniature furniture and stuff out of wood and clay. It was so fun, but it takes a lot of time. I'd love to get back to that.
My favourite hobby has always been acting. I did it professionally for a short time, before realizing that I didn't have the motivation to do it as a career, and just like doing it for fun. I haven't been able to get involved in any community productions here though, so I'm hopeful that I can get back into it when we move next year.
I'd really love to be better at sewing. I'm self taught, and not very good, but I really enjoy making things myself!
There's probably at least a dozen more hobbies that I could think of that I'd like to have time for, but I think that's a pretty good list
