I crochet great triangles, but not much else...  Sheepishly Asking If Anyone Else Knits or Crochets? 2124373437  I drop stitches at the ends of the rows.  I don't think I learned properly.

Instead, my craftsy hobbies are watercolor, colored pencil, and some cross stitch.

Perhaps that's more artsy than craftsy...

Below is a colored pencil I did of a fox.

@Arial Heights That's adorable! I also like the Way you "sheepishly" asked about "yarn/wool"... Good One!! lol!

I can crochet the fire out of any square or triangle..…but, that's it. I'm not as talented as you!

WOW! That sweater is beautiful. My sister does oil painting.  That one in the far right corner is obviously store bought.  The one next to the daisies at night.  Sorry so blurry; I took them with my computer when hubby and I were living in his brother's garage. I decorated the door with Jackie's paintings.

Oh yeah,  that one has 2 paintings put together, I thought they looked like they should be a set.  They were from when she taught a painting class. She was going to throw them out as junk.  Those were just practice ones; So I took them all.

Thanks everyone, you’re very kind & your art is amazing @Light of the World~Emily 😍, you are incredibly talented. Your Sister is also an amazing artist @Michelle 😍.  I love seeing other people’s arts & crafts. 
I took up knitting when I had to give up work for health reasons & I’ve just learned to crochet. It makes me feel of use & value as it’s something productive. It doesn’t matter what I make, I just need to do something if that makes sense?

Glad you got the joke 🤣🤣, I’m never sure if my humour hits. 
As for talented, I’ve only just learned to crochet, so you’re miles ahead of me on this front. 😁😁
Blankets from crochet squares are beautiful 😍😍

I can crochet squares and can make blankets. I cross stitch and sew. Have just started recently learning to quilt. Thought it would be easy...jokes on me. This is the quilt I have made for Granddaughter’s wedding gift...Sheepishly Asking If Anyone Else Knits or Crochets? 189e5210

I love seeing everyone's creations!!!  I used to attend a painting group at my local senior center, but obviously a certain annoying global pandemic put a stop to all that.  *sigh*  I'm at the sarcastic stage of quarantining.  There are days I just wish I could go back to all my art groups and book clubs and such...but at least there's still Township.   Razz

I don't even know how to sew a button, but I show you a sweater I bought in Mango, handmade, crochet, that maybe you like and you can take the idea! Every time I wear it, I get compliments on it! (My husband says that it looks like a blanket Mad )

You guys are really good! thumbs
I'm also thinking about a hobby and that seems to be really good ideas. Crochet I found earlier in school already great, maybe I should start with this again? Sheepishly Asking If Anyone Else Knits or Crochets? 1144858355 When it gets complicated, I usually gave up, but I think it's all a matter of practice.

@Light of the World~Emily  LOL  I hit sarcasm pretty much from day 1. I'm a homebody so I almost never leave; my idea of getting out in the world and socializing is to open the curtains. So when the announcement was made to stay home I was like challenge accepted, I'm already an expert.  Since  Mar. 2020 I have been out and about roughly 10-15 ish times. most of them to go get Chinese buffet or Subway, (the subways around here have since closed), Walmart once, Hungry Howie's Pizza last night. Yeah, punish me by telling me I have to stay home  lol!  



@Chorilandia  Love the granny squares, I used to have a few afghans that my grandma made, 1 of them was one she made for my Uncle Jim.  I still have a pinafore that she crocheted for my mom. it was (is) a full dress to go over a brown silk slip (dress) that my mom wore when she was abut 4 yrs old I think. It's in a hope chest in a storage locker.  

I don't have the afghans anymore;  my ex moved somewhere??? never told me,   and left all my stuff behind to go to the city dump. The only transportation available at the time was a moped to move a shed full of memories and other stuff plus a section of stuff in the garage.  I lost many things that were near and dear to me that can never be replaced. All because he chose to hate me when I left AFTER he decided to kick me out AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN, etc. etc. blah, blah, blah,  and I never went back. That was 7 yrs go.  I thank God for bringing me back to the love of my life and my best friend that I met at work in 1989. He is the most wonderful man in the world. At times I still think Oh wow!  I cannot believe he is actually mine.  Yay me.   Even after not seeing each other or talking since the early 90's, it was like we were never apart. We are, I believe, the other half of each other.

Trust a man to think it looks like a blanket! It is absolutely beautiful & really well made. 😍

@Michelle

I don't believe in predetermined destiny, but clearly, some of that has happened in your life. May all those years of suffering be useful to enjoy to the fullest what you have today. The past cannot be erased, it is always there, and we must learn from that past so as not to repeat it in the present.
Carpe diem.

About socializing.. OMG... the most I do is go to my garden and to the supermarket (I still work as a doctor but in home office mode). Oppening the curtains is also on my list of activities. Over the years, I learned that material things are secondary, and my greatest pleasure is traveling around the world. My last trip was in 2019... you can't imagine how much I miss that. crying crying

Socializing? It used to be called going to work, lol. For the past several years, it’s going to the doctor or to the store. (And we don’t go in to the stores much, just pick up.)   Since we have been vaccinated, went out to eat for our 40th anniversary and our daughters for Easter...that was nice and almost normal!

Really missing vacation though.  Need my ocean fix.  Maybe in a couple of months.
