    Default Hobbies

    Bit of a fun thread heading into the weekend.

    What hobbies does everyone here have?

    What would you like to try?

    I am vowing to spend less time on my phone and do something productive with my spare time.

    I like to:
    Bake (basic)
    Make candles (basic)

    I would like to try:
    Adult colouring
    Cross stitch
    Learn to sew kids clothes
    Make hair bows & accessories

    Mods, could you please fix the titles to say Hobbies

    Oh good one!

    I love to bake.

    I’ve recently started doing some flower arranging. I did a course which was weekly for 6 weeks and now I get a box of flowers delivered monthly and they come with instructions. In between I go to the flower market and do my own.

    Perfect timing for this thread. I was just thinking the other day that I need a hobby.

    I dont really have anything although I would like to try sewing.
    Interested to hear what others do

    My phone


    Haha I also spend too much time on my phone though I do have specific topics I like to read about.

    Reading non-fiction
    Attempting to garden
    When I have time: try new recipes

    I don't have any currently, although I do enjoy cooking just a bit much.

    I would love to:
    Learn how to sew children's clothes
    Learn how to grow and preserve my own food
    Write a book (not sure what about, just have the writing bug)
    Learn more about psychology and children's development

    Pen palling. Writing letters by hand

    Sewing.. I sew baby blankets and donate them to homeless shelters and the local women’s refuge. I’m going to attempt some stuffed toys for Christmas to donate as well

    This is great - I always think I need more hobbies other than watching Netflix!

    I currently enjoy gardening, reading and bushwalking. Also eating out and drinking wine, does that count?

    I'd really like to try painting with watercolours (I got a set for my birthday) and sewing. Flower arranging sounds like so much fun @Mum-I-Am, I'll have to look for a course near me.

    @FayBelle, I’m in Brisbane but was recently looking at flower arranging workshops as a gift for someone in Hobart. There are a few places that sound great.

    Good food and wine are high on my hobby list.

    My current hobbies are reading, cross stitch, colouring, cooking and mini mosaic. I also do target shooting but haven’t been to the range in months.

    In the past, I’ve tried my hand at mosaics, knitting, crochet and jewellery making.

    I’d like to be able to sew but don’t really have the time to invest in it at this point.

    Default Hobbies

    I love reading non fiction - newspapers and magazines usually as it suits my now short attention span, but I love biographies - and my absolute indulgence is doing the super sudoku in the Saturday paper.
    I also like logic puzzles, I usually do magazine ones if I’m (super rarely) on holidays.

    It sounds strange but I also love cleaning- not the daily grind but ones where you see big results- deep cleaning, sorting things and reorganisation.

    Eta-I’m obsessed with the power washing porn sub on reddit- one day I’ll get one and take so many things to town.

    Anything fiddly, like craft, knitting, art, baking etc I no longer have the patience for.
