SIG had an informal contest to see what new hobbies and interests were developed during COVID and here are the results. Judges: Dallas Terry (San Francisco office) and Lyndsay Webb (Atlanta office).
Here are some pictures of my new hobby during Covid. I started to take foods that we ate and tried to redirect our normal food waste into growth! So far, I am trying to grow an avocado tree (my sisters favorite food) and we have a pumpkin vine out back. There’s also a community garden that’s being developed about a mile from my house, so if everything survives we will replant there and grow for local residents!
I learned some new mixed media and collage techniques by taking a few online mixed media workshops ($10.00 each) that I learned about through Facebook and Instagram. It has been a lot of fun and the teachers were all really good.
3rd Place winner
We’ve been busy learning how to propagate plants and bake sourdough (from my own starter!). We also renovated our back entrance and refinished sixteen 100-year-old windows in our house!
I have learned how to crochet during quarantine, my first project is still in progress!
Quilting – this is a baby quilt for a friend.
My new hobby, Megan gave me a hot sauce making kit for my birthday, and I recently made a pineapple curry hot sauce.
I got into embroidery! I bought some starter designs that showed me exactly how to do it. These were given as gifts.
I wouldn’t really call this a new hobby/interest, but I made my family’s Challah recipe for the first time. Turned out delicious!
