From my profile picture, I guess you can tell - Morris Dancing is more a way of life than a hobby!
How about posting the pattern? Still some time to knit a few up

Paper cutting (the Eastern European way)

I feel so much better for sharing my problem.
Nearly right. It’s an Australian made Kayen AP2 from the war years. Very much like an early PL53. If only I could find a Kayen shade, hens teeth! It came to me in this condition, lucky old me!A Tilley P53 in superb condition, probably about 1940 vintage?
Thank you for sharing that, Red Dwarf.
Did you renovate it?
You're probably aware that your lamp was designed to have a shade (the non-shade models have a folding handle). The shade sits on the 'ears' on the handle at the height of the gallery.
I am into crafting, kiln formed glass being my biggest & definitely most expensive hobby.
I craft every Tuesday evening with my friend, who is also the landlady of my local & we are on a mission to do craft workshops covering every letter of the alphabet. We only started earlier this year & so far we have either done or are about to do:
- Brush Lettering
- Glass Blowing
- Silver/Copper Jewellery
- Lavender Rattles
- Leather Handbag
- Leather Backpack
- Linocut Printing
- Needle Felting
- Rag Rugging
- Stained Glass
- Wood Turning
If anyone has ideas of other interestoing crafts to try I'd love to hear them.
Anne do you fish with lugs? Many years ago my then partner and I laid a line over night in the surf and the next morning we had fish galore. Mind you those lugs can move when you start digging for them. Have you tried fly fishing? So peaceful and fresh trout bears no comparison to bought.Well I started this thread in November last year in the hope that other members might tell us about their hobbies well I thought I would resurrect it as I have recently found a new hobbie as well as camping/ motorhoming whatever you want to call it I have discovered fishing more to the point beach casting and I love it I cannot wait to get home get my tackle sorted and get back out there, so come on some of you must have hobbies that you do either when your home or that you incorporate in your travels.
Yes I have but I’m not great with some bait Edina gave me some bate and told me how to bait the hook and be carful as these worms bite after a few minutes struggle I had all its insides all over my hands fly fishing maybe not for me as I am a beach bum so just wanted something to do while at the beach.Anne do you fish with lugs?
