I spent one year of my life crafting gourds. I went to several classes that I thought would be fun. My least favorite gourd technique was the teneriffe design shown in the first photo. I took two classes, and never could remember how to do the stitching. Anyway, it took over three hours to make, and then I remembered my "Make nothing that takes over three hours" rule! I like the wood burning technique and pine needle weaving technique. One of my favorite rim trims is made with date trash (stems) shown in the second photo.
I recently cleared out my doll room to make room for a hobby room. I had over 100 collectable dolls in there but then lost interest in that collection. So far, I haven't been inspired to take advantage of my new hobby room. I haven't crafted anything!
