    I'm retired after 32 yrs. teaching (high school honors and college classes). Besides my quilting and making things at my two DIL's request--Roman shades, throw pillows, whatever, I'm now in the antique business--mainly crystal, china, and silver). I have a booth in a local mall, an online shop, and sell some on eBay. I love to go to auctions seeking mdse. for my shops.

    I quilt, I write, I make jewelry and I used to do rubber stamping until quilting took over. Then there is my reading. I still work full time and spend time with my perfect grandchildren (and I don't care if their mother--my daughter-- doesn't agree that they're perfect). My mom always said she wanted triplets and thinks she got them!

    I tap dance.

    My father raced pigeons too. I have happy memories of my dad and Uncle Pete enjoying competing from our rooftop when we lived in New York City many years ago.

    What an amazing bunch of people! I love this board! I love to quilt, but it is a relatively new passion. Reading, writing, and horseback riding I would consider my hobbies, but I also love photography, cooking, baking, and hiking. I know how to crochet but don't do it much...my mind wanders and I lose count. I also like to do hand embroidery. This has been a fun 'getting to know you' thread. Thanks for starting it. :-)

    Horses, garden, cross stitch, read, hike, camp, Bible Study, time with grandsons, aerobic exercise in water (arthritis), minimal amount of making own cards, - is that enough?

    I knit, read, rubber stamp, embroider....not necessarily in that order. In summer months we love to grill outside & just sit out & have a big glass of ice tea & grilled hamburger.
