This week’s prompt is:
I love tabletop RPGs, and some of my favorites are Dungeons & Dragons and Warhammer Fantasy. Right now I play a D&D 5E game online (on roll20) every Tuesday night and it’s a blast! I wish I got the chance to play more, and I miss playing in person.
I’m just starting to teach myself to do cross-stitch and embroidery, so I’m not very good yet, but it’s a lot of fun!
I’ve done some really basic machine quilting for blankets and whatnot, but what I really love is paper-pieced quilting. I also am working on a hand-quilted hexy quilt for my mom, which I’ve been working in in tiny bits for a couple of years now, haha. Someday I might finish it!
I like painting with acrylics on canvas, but I’m not great at it. I also love painting minis for tabletop RPGs! They’re VERY different sorts of painting, but both really fun in their own way. Here’s a mini for my Tiefling warlock/sorcerer that I need to finish painting one of these days…
I LOVE cooking and trying to recipes! Most recently I made homemade gimbap. Korean cooking is some of my favorite, and it’s nice to be able to make it at home because we don’t have many Korean restaurants around here. I love cooking, but HATE to bake – is that odd?
Another self-taught hobby, I’m a super beginner at both of these. I do mostly washcloths, dish scrubbies, and scarves – small, easy projects! This Christmas I’m attempting to make my first ever hat for someone – wish me luck!!
I LOVE to cosplay! My style is a mix of purchased costumes, costumes put together in a sort of “closet cosplay” style with some purchased base pieces and purchased or me-made accessories, or I’ve made a few entirely from scratch. My favorite part is WEARING the costume and interacting with people in character, more than the construction of the actual costume, haha.
I used to be a big WoW fanatic before I had kids – now who has time for that? My spouse still plays a lot of high-commitment games, but I’m much more of a casual gamer now. I was big into Animal Crossing earlier this year (who wasn’t?!) but I haven’t played much of anything lately. Enjoy this screen shot of me stargazing with Jana and Sarah…
Pretty much every year for Christmas I try out something new to make for people as gifts. I’ve done bath bombs, melt & pour soap, soy wax candles… Someday I want to try making paraffin pillar candles as well!
I love board games and card games (but can never get people to play with me!) This is from KissCon 2019 (maybe?) – I brought along Marrying Mr. Darcy and made people play with me!
Honorary mention to: taking baths and dying my hair weird colors. Do those count as hobbies? LOL
