Every man has his hobby-horse.
There are many hobbies. I think any hobby can be entertaining and useful if you do it with wish and pleasure.
One of my hobbies is cooking. It is a tradition in my family to make cakes for holidays.
I also get pleasure from growing flowers. My favourite flowers are begonia, violet, petunia, geranium.
As for my husband, he is keen on making baskets and boxes of all types from birch bark (из бересты). To my mind it's one of the national
handicrafts that should not be forgotten nowadays.
There are boys in our school who also like to work with birch bark.
Ivan Semyonov attends the club "Skillful hands". He has taken part in different competitions where he had to demonstrate his skillfulness.
