What would you like to learn?

Is there something you would like to learn how to do?
Did you always wish you could cook, or bake, or knit, or play the piano, or sew?
What's on your "things to learn" list--and what's stopping you from learning it?

I have always wanted to learn to play the organ. I received an organ for Christmas in 2004 (a friend of ours was getting rid of theirs) but I can barely play it. Those piano lessons I took as a grade-school kids, when I never practiced, didn't do the trick!

Today I ordered 3 instruction books so I can finally start to learn to play the organ.
I know that if I wait to try to get lessons, it will never happen. I'm going to have to make the time.

I want to learn to do man things like welding, wiring, rebuilding an engine, etc. and woodworking. What is keeping me? All the other backlog of projects in the house!

I would love to learn to crochet 'patterns' -- all I know how to do is straight lines. I get very creative with my color combos, so people "ooh" and "aah", anyway, but, I would love to do more!

What is stopping me is busy-ness with the kids, PTA, my online business, not cleaning the house

We are moving in the summer near my MIL and she is a very good crochet-er so I definitely intend to pick her brains!

Because another thing that stops me is trying to understand 'basic' (HA!) crochet books...I need 'human' instruction! And my teacher has gone to Heaven...my wonderful Grandmamom.

I would love to learn to knit like many of you. I am left handed and I have tried and tried to knit. No luck yet. Crotche is my thing. Just finished a baby blanket and starting another one. Wish I could just have you all over so I could show you how-to.

I would love to learn to -
Knit
Fly an airplane
Build an outdoor oven.
Throw a pot on a wheel
Go back to College
