I currently indulge myself in:
knitting and needlepoint on the fiber arts side, haven't sewn or crocheted in years
painting ceramics when something catches my fancy
and cooking. I'm an unrepentant foodie so it's an art form to me!

Knit and crochet keep me the busiest these days--with knitting winning over crochet of late (although crochet is my first love since I learned it first), but I also enjoy tatting, paper making, book making, origami, gardening, cooking, jewelry making, and quilting.

I've also gotten into making boxes and bags using wallpaper samples (since I was given about 8 or 10 books of the stuff--one must do something with it, you know).

Oh, well I guess gardening isn't really very crafty. . . .

I sewed a lot when I was a teen and when my kids were little. I've also done crewel embroidery and crochet. I attempted quilting, but it's just as fiddly as sewing. I'm not interested in those things anymore. I much prefer knitting. It's easy to take along and just pick up and create.

For some reason I see you with artfully designed topiary in your yard, or with trees grown in parallel rows shaped into arches for a pathway... you strike me as the artsy gardener.

Well, thank you, Charlotte; it's nice to be imagined that way--even if it's not true!

No, the sad reality is that our garden is quite weedy and wayward at the moment. We will get it whipped into shape as spring nears, but for now it is quite the untidy mess!

As for trees and pathways and topiary, well that's not realistic here on the edge of West Texas. I'd love to cover the place in trees--and have the moisture to sustain them, but alas . . . my husband must have a field to plow and the rains just aren't very frequent these days.

I see all these beautiful, lush, green, drapey gardens on Pinterest, and I dream of having such a sanctuary in my backyard. But then reality in the form of another hot, dry Texas summer slams into my pitiful little dream, and before you know it, the dream, as well as the garden, has burnt to a crisp--and/or been eaten by grasshoppers!

Maybe I should strive for a beautiful, lush, green, drapey cactus garden--all in neat rows and shaped into interesting topiary and with arches that one dare not walk under lest one be impaled! Hmmmmm . . . . that's not quite the same inviting environment that I imagined!

You could have it in miniature, Antares, with a terrarium.

I knit, crochet, weave, draw (not very well), embroider, cross stitch, pretty much anything involving a needle "turns me on". I also like to try new things I have found on youtube, like making roses out of plastic spoons, now that is fun!

However, it could be very private and just for you, minus the grasshoppers.
I'd no idea you were that close to the SW desert - I fell in love with the stark and oddly shaped Joshua trees in Southern CA. Do you have those?
