This week's topic is My Talent.
This is definitely not a strong topic for me. There are a lot of hobbies which I enjoy doing, but whether they are talents can be debated :)
After having my first child, I just don't have time to develop talents and focus of activities which I enjoy.
For this reason, I am going to tell you about those 'talents' or rather hobbies (in my case) I can't wait to devote more time to when my youngest goes off to school (that would be next year).
I love creative activities (although I am not necessarily creative). Embroidery and needlework is one of my favorites! I did needlework at school and absolutely loved it. I can sit for hours with my embroidery ring and create something beautiful (off a pattern that is). I find it so relaxing but can definitely not do it with little sticky fingers around. This is a Hardanger design which I completed. I love the simplicity of the white on white.
I also love pottery, but this is not something I can do at home and need to attend a workshop to do as I don't have the resources at home. I made this little bowl which I use for dips and snacks. (One can never have enough bowls in your cupboard.)
Baking is something I enjoy filling my time with - not necessarily cooking but baking! I love baking something really yummy! Since being at home, I can spend more time in the kitchen, baking for teas and gatherings. I have also started baking my children's birthday cakes in stead of ordering them.
Maybe my talent is baking WITH my daughter - the amount of time and patience needed should definitely be considered as a talent :)
Here is a recipe we love making together - it is quick and easy and delicious is you like lemony goodness :)
Okay, I think that is enough "non-talents" for now.
