    If I was able, healthwse, flower gardening would be my next favorite after sewing and quilting. During the winter, reading is my favorite hapbby, especially when it is a story about quilting. For you, who, do love to read, let us know some of your favorite authors. I will submit some of mine later this week.

    If I could do that NOBODY would be allowed to cut into it!
    But the inside is better then the outside!!!!!
    No way, unless you have a recipe like the lady who did my older DD's wedding cakes. The absolutely best cake I've ever tasted. She had 3, decorated as gifts. One was a cherry cake, one was chocolate and one was coconut. Simply fantastic

    One of the last times I took my mother to doctor's before her death from Alzheimer's/kidney failure, I put in a cd of Andy Griffith's gospel music. Mother had not known who I was for over a year and was not able to hold a conversation. But when that music came on, she began singing the songs perfectly, remembering every word. I joined in and we sang our way across Houston's afternoon rush hour. I didn't care how long it took because it was such a blessed time. Six months later I lost both her and my husband within 9 days of each other. But I will always remember that blessed afternoon.
    Thank you to you and all the other gospel singers!
    What a wonderful memory to have of your mom. Sorry about both deaths.

    It's actually quite easy after you learn the trick of snapping the thread into place. But way too repetitive for me

    Sorry for so many replies in a row. Had to read all the way thru 20+ pages.

    I'm amazed at all the hobbies. I'd have guessed you all would have stayed in the handicraft areas with your hobbies. Glad to see I'm wrong.

    And some of you are quite physically active with your hobbies. LOL, mine are mostly sitting hobbies.

    Congrats to all of you!

    Personally I love all of the mentioned hobbies but I like to do counted cross stitch and assemble kits for a friend for her business of teaching classes on cross stitch. Gardening is another fav.

    I just read "Heaven is for Real' written by Todd Burpo about his son Colton. There is also a book "Akiane" about a young girl who began painting at age four from 'visions from God' Both of these are excellent books.

    I worked with a friend that tried and tried to teach me tatting and I am left and her right handed and I just could not get it. I can knit and crochet but can't catch on to tatting. Wish I could though it is so cute.

    wolph33, your photo of your dog looks just like our Whitey that we had to put down 2 years ago. He was a flat coat retriever and such a great dog. Actually he was our daughter's dog, but as he aged and had increasing pain in his hips, he became irritable and snapped at the kids so we brought him to live with us rather than having him put down sooner. He lived with us for 3 more years before he just couldn't walk anymore and the vet said we needed to remove his pain. We live in the country and he was happy here.

    I enjoy gardening, reading, and playing golf when the weather gets nicer. So everything takes a back seat even quilting.

    I know what you mean.

    When my gardening starts, quilting typically slows WAAY down.

    I've been addicted to making fabric postcards for swapping online in several yahoo postcard groups.

    Lately I've been feeling a bit burned out on them and wanting to get back to quilting.
