Do you guys have any hobbies other than chainmaille? I personally do a little bit of origami, and I want to start doing some woodworking.

Oh lordy. So many...

Writing, reading, photography, scrapbooking, needlework, quilting, costuming, leatherwork, gardening, doing things outdoors, gaming (both online and RP), music, going to conventions...and I just added scientific illustration to my list.

tish you're good at that. I like the mouse/dragon. Are you making origami clothing in the future? (Just for a display obviously).

Does playing with a radioshack RC helicopter count as a hobby?

@djgm
not sure what you mean by origami clothing, and i would say that counts, its not like there's a standard for hobbies these days

Except Jax is a lady Wink

As for me... Video Games, Maille, Programming... Oh, and chatting in the M.A.I.L. Chatroom...
That pretty much sums me up.

That origami is amazing!

Other hobbies for me are gaming, reading, writing, webcomics, and arguing over the internet Coif LoL

That origami is impressive! Best I've done is paper airplanes.

Other hobbies?! What does that mean?

Seriously though, I guess I'll put video games for myself, although that's usually in spurts. Cycling. Hanging out in the M.A.I.L. chatroom is a hobby? I guess I now qualify for that one. On that note, Master_Solotov, I see that you popped in the other day. Smile


Tell a mailler what ring sizes to use and they'll weave for a day. Teach them AR and they'll weave forever.

Mostly needlework and reading, with some occasional fishing thrown in.

Bwahaha! Don't feel too bad. It happens often...and in real life as well. People just see a 5'11" behemoth hovering near them and don't bother to look. Razz

I enjoy hiking/camping, generally as an extension of my interest in historical recreation/interpretation. I also enjoy various sorts of fencing/swordplay... but mostly I like to make stuff - I've made a few knives, various bits of plate armor (including a full suit), random material goods for reenactors, metal sculpture, historical costuming (mostly 16th century German stuff), painting in various styles, I've dabbled in printmaking (5 semesters of printmaking in college) and am working towards setting up my own printmaking studio, also setting up a studio for stained glass work. I like to take pictures of wildlife and derelict buildings... anyone in need of an extra hobby? I have too many, don't feel like I can fit in my budding interest in taxidermy or building medieval-inspired furniture.

oh, I like video games too... play a lot of minecraft and skyrim. I've been wanting to try the mass effect games, but already splitting my time between too many other things.... same problem with getting my bicycle out to explore all these old logging roads in the woods by where I moved to a couple years ago.

I used to have other hobbies, little rings pretty much consume my every waking moment now.

Y'know, that might just be crazy enough to work!

Lol, Lorenzo!! That looks like something I could write!

Well, jewelry used to be my hobby, except now it's my business. So same as Lorenzo, little rings pretty much consume most/all of my time as well, and when not little rings it's other techniques such as Steampunk, wire-work, etc.

Let's see, hobbies.......I love rockhounding, but that is now tied in with my business, I collect vintage/antique jewelry, but that is also now tied in with my business (design inspiration), I want to learn lapidary but that's not really going to be a hobby either. This seems to be the running theme with what used to be my hobbies.

So hobbies that are still hobbies: experimental digital photography, graphic design, sculpture, painting, music (singing; playing the flute, Irish flute (a.k.a the fife), tin whistle, and started to learn the bodhrán (really need to get back to that sometime)), I collect strange alphabets (not all of them 'real' languages, I have quite a few from Star Trek, various ones by Tolkien, and the D'ni alphabet from the Myst and Riven PC games Very Happy! I also have Cuneiform......as I said, strange alphabets), and reading. I would love to learn sword-smithing, stain glass making, and mosaics.

Just took up archery with my two daughters and love it!

Does sweeping up after my husky who sheds 13 months a year, count as a hobby? Smile

LOL!!!! I know what you mean! I used to have a Siberian husky, and my family's joke was that he shed twice a year for two six month periods.
