Sewing. I also enjoy dying fabric

I used to love doing my art but I seem to have abandoned that while having young kids.

Cross stitch
Reading
Computer games

There are other crafts I enjoy doing, but life is busy enough right now that cross stitching seems to be the only one I manage to do regularly.

Are you looking for something active? Inactive? Indoor, outdoor? With or without the kids?

I love to sew, I also really enjoy reading but I can't read on my phone in a dark room and I can't have the light on while the baby is sleeping,so I don't read very much anymore.

if you have the kindle app, try changing your background to black and your text to white. it works well for less eye strain in the dark/dim.

Re: What are your hobbies?

Sewing - I love to sew... until it becomes more of a chore! I sell things locally and sometimes I feel pressured to fill an order. But I love making things for gifts. I used to knit, but it takes a LOT longer than sewing so I haven't done it in a while.

Reading - book and magazines. I look at a lot of book suggestions from my Pinterest feed and add the ideas to a book list; every now and then I check a few books out of the library.

Photos - I make digital photo albums on Shutterfly for each of my kiddos. I used to love scrapbooking, but like knitting, it was very time-consuming (and all of the elements can get expensive!).

DIY - this is a broad category, but I love trolling for DIY ideas, whether it be sewing or jewelry-making or whatever. I hate to buy something if I can make it myself!

Baking - I love trying new recipes; even just looking at a glossy cookbook gives me inspiration.

Coloring - I've been given a few adult coloring book and got myself a set of markers. Every so often I sit down and focus on a new page.

Active pursuits - when the weather is nice our family likes to walk, canoe, go camping, things like that. We also garden, but I do more work on the harvesting/preserving end.

Reading, writing, drawing, music, letter writing, sort of sewing... I've been wanting to learn cross stitch for awhile.

Taking care of my pets.

I usually do things at random unless it's the stuff that has to be done. I used to enjoy cooking too but I mostly lost interest. Sigh.
