O/T: Open Minds! Name one thing you'd love to learn how to do?

Started 1334190131.073 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1334470893.003 by metrogal

I want to learn to sew clothing. I can make curtains and things like that, but I really want to learn to make clothing, even though I know it's not really cost effective. I need to find a class in the area and do that this summer.

Name one thing you've always wanted to learn to do

or

one thing you did learn how to do that you're especially proud of.

Understand Polish and someday speak it. Now all I do is eat the food.

I always wanted to learn how to knit- they were offering night school classes this winter and I thought $150 was way to much to pay to learn how to knit- now I wish I took the course. Maybe next year.

I also wish I could swim.

That does sound like a lot. Was that with materials included? How intensive a course was that?

I have always wanted to learn to ice skate and/or roller skate. Now I am 66 and I'd be afraid to fall and break something.

Learn to speak Italian, my daughter-in-law is from Italy, and her parents do not speak English.

Play bridge. I love games. My late mother tried and tried to teach me, but I just couldn't get it! She belonged to two bridge clubs until she died. When I was a little girl, I used to peek through the stairs late at night to hear the ladies talking and laughing. They always went all out with their "desserts" too, and they always dressed up! It was so much fun to watch them! Smile

Take incredible pictures.

I'd also like to sew much better than I do as well.

Bungee jump. I'm terrified of heights. Not heights exactly, but falling. Remember what Sherry said last night when she got booted from Dancing with the Stars? Run into your fear.

Oh my, where to start! There's so many things that have been filling my "bucket list" through the years! Probably my top 3 (that are still attainable) are:

1) Learn to play the sitar. I have been fascinated with this instrument since I was a child watching the Beatles and Ravi Shankar on Ed Sullivan. (It also sparked a life-long interest in this culture, and love of its food! Yum!)

2) Learn to play the mandolin. I did buy one a few years ago, but then a big life change came and I haven't gotten back to it.

3) Learn to play classical guitar.

(I'm sensing a theme here... {#emotions_dlg.biggrin})

I would also like to learn more languages. I used to be fluent in 3, but I've lost the speaking ability through lack of use through the years. Although I still use written French in my job. Probably Spanish would be next.

You were born an original - don't die a copy.

Learn more German than the tiny bit I know. We will be spending three weeks in a German speaking country in September. I am fluent in Spanish and get along in French. Languages are fun for me!

Grip a regulation-sized basket ball on the top with my palm down. I think it has a lot to do with hand strength and not just hand size.

I took a knitting course through my local CC, $49 for 8 weeks. Bring your own materials and learn at your own pace. There were beginners and folks that had been doing it for years in my class. Honestly I learned quite a bit with you tube videos. My instructor was a great knitter and maybe it was my right/left challenge issue, but watching the on line videos and replaying them over and over while the yarn was in my hands worked better than the class for the initial stitches. After I got the hang of it the class helped a great deal with the instructions on the patterns. Good luck and have fun!

I have many things: Right now I really want to learn to use Ebay. I need to sell my motorhome. I would love to take awesome pictures, especially of my granddaughter. I also would love to be more proficient at organizing on my computer photos, photo books,,, On another level, I would like to play golf so I could play with hubby. I would like to understand finance and be completely debt free. All for now.

d: You totally took mine! I've always wished I could sew! Like for real, not just a quick whip stitch to fix something or close up a seam.

Knitting would be tied into that.

I use to speak Italian when I was younger (and my grandparents were around), so I'd love to brush up on that, but I'd have nobody in close proximity to practice with regularly.
