    Currently, it is playing the banjo. I have taken lessons for 1 yr. Puts callouses on different areas on the fingers, LOL.
    I do almost all forms of needlework.

    Reading....I love Stephen King books. And cooking....despise the cleanup. Just about any crafty thing.

    Reading, walking/hiking, knitting, gardening (even the weeding part)genealogy, logic problems, jigsaw puzzles.
    I like baking when I get in a mood for it...like making jams too.... but I don't like preparing meals.
    I also love driving by myself or taking road trips with DH.

    Besides sewing totes (not quilted as I usually use upholstery or heavier drapery fabric) and Renfaire costuming I also do crocheted hats, fingerless gloves, and stuffed animals and sometimes the tiny angel ornaments. I love to read - mostly this board (LOL) and SciFi/Fantasy. And many weekends I'm working retail at various Renfaires - is that a job or a hobby - hmmmm.

    I love knitting, but I can only do it in the cold weather! I do a lot of volunteer work, at the ASPCA and with a neighborhood group that takes care of street trees here in Brooklyn. I just wish I could work less and hobby more!

    I love to oil paint but don't do it much right now. I tend to read when not quilting!

    mom6,
    What kind of fingerless gloves do you make?
    I just bought a craft glove that is fingerless that is supposed to help with carpal tunnel.
    Is that the kind of gloves you make or some other kind of gloves?

    Besides quilting and sewing we drag race. Summer is busy, a race can be found every weekend if we choose to do so. We have a schedule this year of 24 races. Husband is cutting back and not running for the championship. He has had 4 championships and 6 runner-ups. Time to slow down and travel-site see and relax. We will see how long that lasts!
    i do have and sewing/embroidery machine in the motor home. We do get rain days and I sew then.

    Painting and all types of sewing and needle work. I love making jewelry and other crafts. I love gardening but this year I may not plant much as we may go into stage three water restrictions soon.

    What you all have money left over for something else! I can only read if I go to the library, unless of course it is a quilting book

    Driving my ponies (in a cart), biking and yard/garden work....hence my name...Wintersewer...I only sew in the winter. The rest of the year I am outside, hopefully wearing off calories and getting fit.

    Recently I have gotten into cooking since I just bought a new healthy, low-fat cookbook and I love it! I also like reading Dean Koontz and Nicholas Sparks books, decorating my house and container gardening in the summer
