    My other hobbies are:

    1. Home remodelling and repair.
    2. Landscaping
    3. Old cars
    4. Model trains
    5. Anything else which allows me to buy really cool tools.

    Just call me Terry the Tool Man. And as I told my neighbor a couple of weeks ago......A butter knife is not a tool.

    So, Terry, I'm guessing you'd think that an aluminum meat tenderizer is not a hammer???? :lol:

    hahaha when I first moved away to college and didn't have any tools, I used a high heeled shoe with a wide heel to use as a hammer for hanging pictures :lol:

    A meat tenderizer is a hammer. But not one you should be using to try and frame a house with.

    Other than quilting...


    -I love to dance, I take ballroom, and I'm doing a triple swing in a show in a month.

    -I paint and draw, mostly watercolor portraits, I find it challenging because it has to be so precise to look like the person it's supposed to look like. Plus, with watercolor you have to be careful not to mess up because you can't just paint over it. No erasing, no covering, it's hard but I love it.

    -I play the guitar. I have 7 guitars, although one is in need of a new bridge, and an other (electric) is in pieces after I took it apart to give it a lovely new paint job ( I used metallic blue, left over from a car I painted at work)


    Let me see if I can pull up a few pics for you guys...

    I took this aria proII apart a couple of years ago, it was banged up and dented, so I fixed it, refinished it, and painted the tiger on the pick guard. The guitar used to be all white.
