As you can see, I have still been working on my fractals and pixel art, but I have been trying to expand my skill set. I am currently trying to learn tatting. Got a good start on it, but haven't gotten to the point yet that I feel confident that I can do it consistently without mistakes. Once I have that down, I want try my hand at crochet. After that, on to weaving. The only issue with weaving is that a decent loom is no less than $300. And I don't want to make such an expensive purchase if I am not going to stick with it. So I have to find someone who has one they are willing to loan me or to hit the yard sales (tis the season) to see if anyone anywhere is selling one cheap. I also want to get my hand on a sewing machine. I already know how to sew and enjoy it. So that won't be a useless expense, especially since it is cheaper to make clothes than to buy them. (yup, working on getting us to a point that we aren't so dependent on so many corporations for our needs). We also have moved to a location that we have room for a garden, so I will need to learn the fine art of canning. Don't want to have all those good veggies and fruits go to waste. So.... busy. I will still look for time to work on my fractal and pixel art though.
