    I raise and train service dog puppies and teach puppy obedience classes for my local obedience club. I do what I can to help raise money for the service dog program. Being with my dogs keeps me from quilting because they like to chew on fabric....

    I also love to read.

    I have several flower gardens and spend a large amount of time in them in the summertime. I spent all day working in the gardens yesterday. We also have a veggie garden. I also love to read but do more of that in the winter time. My love of quilting and love of growing flowers is about equal.

    I used to crochet but I can't do much of that anymore due to a shoulder problem.

    I have two doll houses I collect furnishings for.

    I used to do quite a bit of photography work. I am allergic to too many of the chemicals though so I had to give up B&W film and prints. Now I just use a digital camera.
