    LOVE TO CROCHET. HAVE MADE MANY DESIGNER DRESSES FOR BARBIE DOLLS (IN A DISPLAY CABINET) AND PRINCESS DIANA'S WEDDING DRESS. SINCE I CAN'T SEE AS WELL AS I USED TO, I NOW DO PROJECTS USING YARN - AFGHANS, HATS, SCARVES, ETC.

    I have a convertible Shelby that we take to car shows in the summer. During the winter she sits in the garage. She is my summer hobby and quilting is my winter hobby.

    Spinning (yarn), knitting, rug hooking, some weaving and school (only 6 weeks left!) camping, reading and listening to audiobooks. I have quilted on and off for years and years, and since I have been in school for 17 months, I have recently picked it back up.... I wanted to -make- something, other than words on a page.

    I am a gardner, crocheter, and family genealogist. Some days it is hard to put these aside also. I don't know how I ever had time to work.

    Too many hobbies I think. My main ones is quilting/sewing and computers. I could be a tech junkie!I love to go fishing with my dh. Target shooting w dh. I enjoy baking, cooking, reading, biking. I love spending time with my friends. We get together every month for something. This month we are spending the day at my house to make a "quilt in a day" for one of our friends daughters wedding. Won't that be fun! Gee, that is just some of my pasttimes hobbies.
    I won't be bored when I retire, that is for sure!

    I guess I'll add a note or two. I'm new to quilting, and got started because of my Civil War Re-enacting hobby. I ride with the 4th US Cavalry and 5th Texas Mounted Volunteers. So, I have a horse. I also hunt, fish, boat, shoot (I'm an NRA pistol insturctor, and do lots of classes for ladies who want to learn to shoot), and do lots of leather work--mostly re-enacting leather and holsters and knife sheaths. I used to tie flys while watching TV--now, I quilt. Weird, isn't it?

    my ferret boys would love that honeycomb set up! any chance of a tute on that? other hobbies, my ferrets, crocheting, knitting, ball jointed dolls (new), making stuffed animals (mostly oddball stuff, from dragons to trying a bat to attempting my own gargoyle patterns (although grands are making strong bids for Elmo, tiger, etc.), sewing of course. alcx not much quilting for a while but have a growing file of inspiration! cooking is a hobby as well. unfortunately all of these are becoming a little more challenging since developing arthritis in my thumbs and forefinger!

    I would LOVE to learn Japanese even just to read my manga more directly but I am afraid I have lost too many brain cells over the years!

    We have a '48 Dodge and a '51 Chevy, so, we go to car shows and cruising during the summer. Also, I love to digitize machine embroidery designs, knit, crochet, counted cross-stitch, do puzzles, and read.

    My favorites right now, besides quilting, are upholstery (love it - but hard work!), knitting, needlepoint, gardening, reading, Saturday rummage and garage sales, and furniture re-purposing/make-overs. No wonder I'm tired!

    My passion is reading. Love to cook, hand embroidery, and traveling. Am blessed with a dear friend who teaches cooking classes so love learning new styles. I am learning to garden but am not absorded by it.
