Kevin and I are taking up new hobbies for the new year!
I got a sewing machine from my parents for Christmas. I'm really excited to learn how to use it. Crocheting will continue to be my main craft, but there are so many wonderful things that I could do with some basic sewing skills and a machine. Unfortunately, my new machine was too big to fit in the car (what with all of our other Christmas hoopla and travel gear), so it had to stay at my parents house for a few more weeks until they bring it down. That gives me time to do some research and start pinning potential projects :) Suggestions?
Kevin is really excited about learning how to cook. My pride was definitely hurt for a moment when he said that he'd like to take up the cooking duties. Was my cooking really so bad that he had to take on the meal preparation?? In short - yes - but that's not really what prompted the decision for him...he says, anyway ;) Such a good husband.
Louisville has introduced him to some really great food and he's excited to learn how to prepare some yummy dishes for us at home that cost less and are better for us than what we're currently eating. And his other hobbies (photography and mountain biking) aren't a ton of fun in the middle of winter. Of course, if you know Kevin at all you know that he doesn't mess around when it comes to tools of the trade. As a friend of ours says, "Daddy don't do entry level." haha. As part of his Christmas gift, he purchased new pots and pans, some new knives, a deluxe butcher block and a few other things to get started. The shipment arrived yesterday and he was so excited.
Southwestern Eggrolls for his first meal and they were delicious! I'm definitely looking forward to reaping the benefits of this hobby!
