I haven't started a new hobby. More like picked up where I left offπŸ˜‚ For example I started a cross stitching painting over a year ago. And never really had time to keep at it with work, home, my boy to look after.... so I been doing that. Also I been reading more books because I'm still on furlough. Decluttering and clearing out. Got back into sewing. Making a play mat for my baby due in September. My sons birthday is coming up so I'm making all sorts of cute things which I wouldn't normally have time for such as painted birthday plate, piniata etc... I planted vegetables in my mini greenhouse. Unfortunately terrible wind destroyed most of it😭 Basically doing anything to keep my mind busy...

RuthWardell404 thank youπŸ™‚ it is indeed. For first 6 weeks I havent left the house once.. it has been tough mentally. And physically because I'm normally an active person and I work full time. To go from that to nothing was quite a shock to the system. Have you tried any new crafts/hobbies? I saw articles that crafts such as knitting/crochet etc risen during lockdown.x

jurgita0712 I have been doing one of those crystal pictures. It is quite good. Also been making a latch hook rug. But I like trying new things, so have a few things on the go at once.

RuthWardell404 me too😁 Book folding looks interesting but very time consuming πŸ˜‚ I also like quilling. Scrapbooking. I would like to learn calligraphy. Also I am planning to make crocheted amigrumi toy😁 My son likes to make things with me on my sewing machine. Yesterday he made face mask for himself 😁he was very proud😁
