Let's see:  I crochet, just started stenciling, sewing (more bags and purses than clothes), learning to knit - I'm really a Jill of all Trades!  I'll try almost any craft to start with!

What do YOU like to do?

I've learned tons off of Craftster in the last few months.  I'm always making something new and bringing it to work.  Everyone gets so jealous!  They've started asking what I'm making now!LOL

Lance's comment was what don't I do... Roll Eyes  I love him dearly... but shesh..

I sew (historical and modern clothings, historical shoes, bags, wall hangings, quilting and home dec.)

I weave, with Inkle table and Japanese bobbin braiding stools (maru dai and kaku dai) can't card weave yet, no cards and no *clue*  but the weavers Guild in town can fix *that*  Grin

I dabble in polymer clay (Inro' and Netsuke mostly, which goes back to my fondness for things Japanese) and have dabbled in standard ceramics and would again if I had money and space

I dabble in chainmail, mostly in the jewelry way, though I have made an armor shirt.

I've dabbled in woodworking and metal milling and still "borrow" the shops of my Father (for wood) and my Father in Law (for metal)

I do jewelry work, weaving and stringing mostly with a little wire wrapping.  I've also taken a couple classes on lampworked beads, but can't do that in an apartment.  Fire codes.

I draw and paint (watercolors mostly there) and am learning Chinese brush painting (mostly making a mess right now though) and do some dye work

I knit on a frame (still trying to find a person who is skilled enough to teach me to work around the messed up hand without spazzing when it decides it's had enough)

don't crochet or tat lace (but am looking at the latter REALLY hard) don't spin (same reason I don't knit with needles) and don't felt (YET!)

I'm a non musical in a family of musicals... what can I say I'm compensating... 

(being fair my Mother crochets, Mother in Law knits and sews, Father works a kaku dai, works chain mail, woodworks and does metal casting and my father in law does metal milling, casting and dabbles in woodworking.  Lance sews, works chain mail and dabbles in all sorts of crafts.  We are all pretty "hands on")
