(O) Other Hobbies

I've talked about my major hobbies during this challenge: Reading, Movies, Writing, Music and Guitars. However, occasionally I do get to do some other stuff. I so have Adult ADHD. Here are just some of my OTHER hobbies.
JEWELRY MAKING - I don't get to do this too much anymore because of room constraints. However, I can make jewelry. Necklaces, bracelets, earrings, broaches, watch bands...etc.

PHOTOGRAPHY - I've been taking pictures since I was 10. This is one of my recent favorites. View from my livingroom.
JEWELED NON-GROUT MOSAIC - This is the last thing I made. I made this in the fall 2010. It is a mirror with various beads/jewels attached. No grout, so it is rather delecate.

SEWING - Again, space in my apartment plays a factor. I sew. I made this patchwork skirt for my daughter in 2009. REFASHION - Why throw out things if you don't have to. Obviously, this donated skirt was too big for my daughter. Well I fixed that. I refasion/repurpose clothes and objects.

REPURPOSE - This used to be a Blue Diamond Almond container. Now it is a Mini Mary Shrine.

SING - Oh yeah, I sing in my church choir. That is me, the tall one in the back. My daughter is in the front with the silver head band. My son took this picture, so it isn't the best, oh well.

DRAW/PAINT - A talent I get from my father I suppose. Haven't drawn or painted anything in quite some time though. DECOPAUGE/MIXED MEDIA - Sometimes I have the urge to glue things.
  MOSAIC - I was a mad mosaic lady at one time (when I had lots of room). I loved working with tiles, stained glass and grout. Made some awesome stuff in the process. This is a candy dish, a Christmas gift I made for my mom. KNIT - I made this afghan for my daughter some years ago. I still do pull out the yarn occasionally.

CROCHET - I crochet too. I do traditional crochet and Tunisian chrochet. The above is the latter. This was a scarf for charity.

That pencil drawing is Great!
I knit and crochet too. But I can't draw faces.

Having eclectic interests is pretty cool. And you never know when one of those special fields of knowledge will come in handy.
