    Here's an inexpensive and creative hobby to fill those cold dark evenings.
    Just a few simple materials, and an ability to sew, fray hessian and plait raffia.
    Warning! plaiting raffia is easy, sewing the plaits into dinky baskets takes time.
    My sister-in-law introduced me to these models years ago and gave me the book, l have checked and it's still available. Just add imagination, and off you go.

    Love those tiny baskets!
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    love leaves a memory no one can steal....

    Satan, get behind me!
    No, seriously, I do not not need another hobby.
    Looks like fun tho. I think I know what people in your family are getting for Christmas.
