Making anything keeps me happy. I like making soap, canning food using vegetables we have grown in our garden (pickles, pasta sauce, jelly, relishes, pesto, etc.), doing home repairs and am a passable knitter. I'm even pretty decent at knot tying and using a sling. But what I enjoy making the most is wooden furniture. I love the warmth of wood. And nothing ages with more grace than a well-built piece of wood furniture.
