So... I have tried to get some hobby stuff done this week but have failed dismally. I have no enthusiasm for it and the ideas that are coming to my mind have become such a burden that I can't focus on any of my on-going projects. The ideas are namely bike designs for Grymn and transport options for Squats... both need to be found and/or created... I am hoping that the transport can be 'off the shelf' but I am expecting the bike to be home made.
What have I been doing instead of my hobby... well, internet mainly. In fact, during one of my 'Ebay drive-bys' I managed to pick up an awesome bargain... and have a box of 36 'on-the-sprue' Squats on the way! They cost me less than £50.00 but have no bases (which isn't a problem). I was very pleased with that!
And that was it... that was all I could muster this week. I couldn't even generate the enthusiasm to throw a sculpt together for the Frothers Unite UK sculpting competition (a Mos Eisley theme) and normally that would have ignited my creative flame. Instead of that sort of thing, I decided in my infinite wisdom to try something new and learn a new trick. So I bought the stuff (really cheaply) and went to You-Tube to get a bit of tuition and this is what I managed to come up with:

Yes... I have started to mess around with looms, hooks and tiny rubber bands. It is quite relaxing, takes a bit of thought and both my wife and daughter think it is great because they get the finished results. The only down side was that the loom I had was too short... so I bought 2 and with a bit of chopping, bracing and gluing, have joined them together. Who said an old dog can't learn new tricks? I also used to make Scouby bracelets with my daughter so this is just another little handy craft under my belt.
I know it is pretty random on here at the moment but things usually get a bit weird when the weather warms up... maybe sometime soon, I will get back on it and start to focus a bit. I hope so.
See you from the wishing tree!
