Spring summer and autumn my main hobby is gardening but winter I get set up in my shed and make walking/hiking sticks.

Those are beautiful, Flyfifer. What a talented lot you are!
Hazel -- when I first made sticks my OH asked what i wanted a stick for my answer was for when i get old and infirm to which she replied then you had better start using it, and me only 27.
Wow, they're amazing. I'm glad I started this thread.
Joybell, I've never thought of using bark, but what a good idea, and so clever to think of shapes to cut them into.
Doghouse Riley, I'm impressed with the jewellery your wife makes, and such a good pass time for her
Hazel, your crochet is so neat and even. I'm hopeless at crochet.
Flyfifer, what can I say! You're a professional. They are really beautiful.
id better post this before I go back a page. I might lose it otherwise.
Obelixx, lovely work on the tapestry. I hope yourHubbybwas suitably impressed.
Hello Edd. I wondered where you were. Alls well here except for freezing nights and heavy frosts in the mornings . Oh, and also Internet and telephone problems. There is talk about the NBN (National Broadband Network) being promised to our district, but it's mucking up our existing systems. I think one lot don't know what the other lot are up to with getting ready for the changeover. We are expecting a technician today to tell us if we will be suitable for NBN or not. .
anyway, have a good sleep.
You just reminded me doghouse...I do a bit of that as well. I should have remembered, I'm wearing some of my own creations right now!
Those walking sticks are something else flyfifer. FG's walking mates'll be after some of that action!
