    I grow African Violets, orchids, do some stamping, love to cook ethnic foods, and I have run a private rescue for dogs from my home.

    In summer..my quilting/sewing slows down and I tend my flower gardens and feed the native birds which I adore too.

    Read, sew, quilt, bake bread, crochet (13 afghans made for last Christmas), knit "Nebraska" stocking caps for the babies at the local hospital (1500 so far). Also enjoy making small projects with cloth and paper, such as quilted postcards, table runners, etc.

    knitting, crocheting, spin wool, gardening, Civil War civilian reenactor, and genealogy. I am also really interested in making items from vintage patterns - mostly 19th century, some early 20th century. They can certainly be a challenge sometimes, though.

    Have been doing counted cross stitich & crocheting for over 20 yrs. I decided to try something new and just finished my beginner's quilt class and first lap quilt. Loved the class I took and quilt I made & now I think I've got a new love "QUILTING"

    My hobbies include Reading,Bobbin Lace Making,Bunka Embroidery, Machine Embroidery and of course Quilting.
    BUT my FAVORITE thing to do is be a Grandma, living life all over again through the eyes of my grandchildren. What a blessing!

    ohhhhhhhhhhnooooooooooooo, I don't need to know there is any such thing as a freecell hand held game. If I'm on the computer, I've got a freecell game up.

    A few years ago I tried to teach myself tatting. I tried and tried and somewhere along the way discovered the little "snap" that you need to do to get the thread in the right possition. I made a couple little butterflies and called it quits. I simply don't have the patience to do the little repetitions necessary to make anything.

    Good luck on learning and let us see a couple small projects.

    Have you translated any of your glass designs into fabric designs?

    Do you drive the car a lot? I'd have to go out every day just to make heads turn!

    If you are new to knitting, I hope you are trying all the cables and laces you can find. Knitting is so easy once you learn the basics. Aran style is my favorite
