    WHAT is that cabinet in your picture and where did you get it??? It looks like glass front doors with FQs in it.

    I don't know how I forgot this, but another huge hobby of mine is singing karaoke. I have over 200 karaoke CDs and could probably host my own sessions. I found out early, most karaoke hosts do not have much of a selection of rock music. So, i ended up buying my own. I sing everything from early Deep Purple, Jethro Tull and Black Sabbath to more modern day Ozzy Osbourne, Creed, Nickelback, Seether and Shinedown. In fact, I just bough a new CD this week with Seether's Careless Whisper and Shinedown's Second Chance. My best song is Blue on Black by Kenny Wayne Shepherd. My favorite is Buckcherry's Crazy B**ch. I get a lot of requests from the ladies to do that one.

    Reading
    gardening
    classic cars
    home improvement- painting, sewing curtains, etc.
    antiques
    collect tea pots
    crystal collection


    I also do a fair amount of charity work. Church, AFSP (suicide prevention), project Linus, etc.

    When I decided to obsess over quilting I gave up garment sewing, acrylic painting, crocheting, charcoal drawing, and any other craft around.

    OMG, isn't Seether's cover of Careless Whisper wicked?

    I also like Shinedown's version of Simple Man. Almost better than Skynyrd. Almost.
    You know, the only reason I know some of these recent bands is because they cover the classics! It may have been long before my time (I was born in the 80s), but I pretty much only listen to classic rock.

    My obsession is Scuba Diving but I don't get to spend as many hours doing that as I like right now!
    I have been hooked on that for about 10 years and I love to take people out in the PNW from other parts of the country to see Octopus and Wolf Eels.
    I took up quilting to make a baby quilt for a friend...it was a success even though very simple. I tried to make a dress and decided quilting was the way to go.
    I enjoy quilting because I get to "build" things otherwise my house would always be in a state of remodel. I truly love to build.
    Besides, with quilting, everyone loves blankies and to snuggle...so I am able to give a hug, snuggle and love to all who get a quilt from me.
    I have other hobbies and things I like to do...these are just two of my favs.

    I do the Lynyrd Skynyrd version of Simple Man and Pearl Jam's version of Last Kiss, both fairly well.

    My DH and I were members of the "Kelp Krawlers" in Olympia when we lived there. We had a great time diving in Puget Sound and along the Olympic Peninsula. Yumm Octopus, abalone, crabs, fish, sea cucumbers. We would go camping for a weekend and hunt/fish for our food, it was great!

    I thought that I was the only one that had so many projects going on at the same time:

    1. Quilting
    2. Sewing for Grandkids
    3. Gardening
    4. Woodworking
    5. Painting
    6. Crocheting
    7. Mowing our yard and weed eat for a neighbor and Mother-in-Law
    8. Help Clean at the Church
    9. Help a friend with Cabins
    10. Play with our 3 dogs
    11. Computer, (alot)
    12. Set up Communion at Church

    I do a little bit of each. Some days I can't do a whole lot because of my arthritis. So it depends how I feel and how I can get along, is what I choose for that day.When I feel good watch out, I go until I drop because I never know how long it will be before I can anything again.

    Great post RedGarnet22!!! It's fun reading through them all!

    For myself:
    Gardening - the kids have teased me that soon my whole front yard will be flower gardens, it's close now. DH has also beome addicted to it too. :D
    Reading - Read 1-3 books a week, of anything.
    Yard sales & Estate auctions - we almost need to pull a trailor with us!
    This Board - too much so sometimes! lol!!!
    Canning - got back into it last summer, and want to do much more this summer.
    Anything having to do with our kids & grandkids! :D
    We're also quite involved with our church, and both of us are on our local AngelFood Ministries board, and are quite involved with that.
    Soon to be drag racing again, as soon as my youngest son gets his car ready to go, is letting me drive it! :D
    Bike riding
    Walking with our dogs.....
