I see I posted a little about my hobbies in this thread four years ago. I could tell more about my textile handcrafts: knitting, crochet, sewing, nalbinding are the ones I do on a regular basis. I probably tried out every textile technique at least once. But I like making things I can use, not all techniques produce useful things (many are only embellishing). And did I tell about drawing and painting (watercolours)? I illustrated a few children's books. most in black-and-white pen drawings, one in coloured pencil drawings. Or I draw just for fun (because it's a hobby), mostly in an 'illustrative style'. Sometimes I join a group of Urban Sketchers, I like sketching (with pen and watercolours) 'from life', but I don't like doing it on my own.
Going on bicycle-camping trips can be called a hobby too. Often I go for about five days, sometimes a longer 'tour' of several weeks. Taking everything needed with me on my bicycle, including my doggie (in the basket, do you see her?).

I hired a bunch of ninjas. The fridge is empty, but I can't find them to tell them the mission.
