Anyone discover their skills in creativity during lockdown or hone in on your skills?

    I've been spending tons of time in my shop continuing to branch out on different projects, some new learning, some refining what I'd already learned.......

    I've been reading and doing puzzles again more. Partly quarantine and partly this all happened about the time I finally wrapped up my masters and got more free time back. In a way quarantine has been nice, sometimes I have a tendency to overshedule and run too much, it's forced us to take a step back and chill.

    I have enough post-apocalyptic life skills to get me by that I probably don't need to learn more. I honed my crochet game and finished a year long project during quarantine.

    It's beautiful!

    Wow, amazing detail! I can't even imagine.

    I don't know if these qualify as hobbies, but I've been doing yard work like crazy and, tbh, I rarely cooked, so preparing my own meals on a daily basis.

    I'm coloring in a beautiful adult coloring book, but I don't particularly enjoy it.

    I started learning to play piano during quarantine. Am I any good? HA. No. Did I have fun doing it? Yeah!

    Seems lately I'm working on my sleeping and eating techniques. :/ This current heat wave is zapping my energy and enthusiasm.

    Beautiful work all you hobbyists!!

    I’ve planted over 700 mixed bulbs in the garden for spring (winter here). I’ve gone garden crazy. I’m also really into doctor who now.

    I plan to go on an epic bulb spree in the fall as well! I placed the order, I am just biding my time now :)

    Haha, we planted tulip bulbs one year, a whole mess of 'em. Not a one popped through. I think we planted them upside down. :(

    Awesome work! The bowl reminds me of one my high school bf made for me! Wish I had that skill!

    I've been finding outdoor activities to do. Hiking new trails, running at new parks, kayaking, camping...best summer I've had in a long while.
