If I Had a Hammer

If you could learn a trade — say carpentry, electrical work, roofing, landscaping, plumbing, flooring, drywall — you name it — what skill(s) would you love to have in your back pocket?

I do have a hammer in my toolbox, like everybody, I guess. Occasionally I make some repairs at my home. I’m not very good at it but I can do it. But for a serious job I would call a professional.  I would like to have creativity skills to enjoy my, by now nonexistent, spare time. I love music but I lost my voice so I can’t sing any more. I love painting and embroidery. I have some issues with my sight lately though. I need new prescription glasses to finish my last embroidery project. But I’m determined to finish it at all costs. This is how it looks today:
