    Wow! We are all so talented. Love it. I love ceramics, oil painting (haven't done this for years), genealogy, crochet, knitting, jewelry making, wood burning, sewing; purses, carry-on bags, totes, corn bags, curtains & draperies, gardening. Some of my work below:

    Oh I so wish I was more patient with puzzles. My MIL gave me some beautiful puzzles w/ quilts in them. When she was here visiting she did complete one for me, I glued and framed it, guess I will have to wait for another vivist for her to finish the other ones, mean while I embroidery, crochet, garden {ya spring is here} and I read alot. Oh and scrap book but haven't been able to get motivated on that for over a yr now.

    Wish I had NAF, or that I was able to afford one, and at age 70, little hope of it happening. They are wonderful and some are made beautifully. I have bad lungs, but perhaps I could blow into one of those flutes.

    I make and give away rag dolls for kids with cancer and other devestating diseases, i am a novice quilter (small things), I knit simple stuff....(posted two things that will perhaps show up on tomorrows knitting forum) and I crochet, embroider, try to draw simple stuff and paint it, plus my favorite thing to do is write inspirational mini=fiction stories (short shorts). My "grannys crazy quilt" is posted somewhere on here, that I wrote sometime back.

    We sure have a wonderful and versified group in this forum. I also have a guitar I forgot how to play, but hope to re-learn.

    I teach a short one day a week knit/crochet class to a tiny group.

    I love to read. I also like crocheting and cross stitching, but I have not done those since I began quilting. I just don't have enough time for all of my hobbies. Maybe one day.

    My other interest besides quilting seem to come and go. I have done ceramics which lead to tole painting then pen and ink drawings and pierce and cut lampshade making. I've made most of my own clothing and some of my husbands and children's throughout the years. I collect English bone china tea cups (have about 190), bone china coffee mugs (have about 80), snow bunnies and snow babies, Hummels and of course quilt fabric. I do read most days for an hour or two. It has all kept me out of trouble and my mind creative and active

    I have too many hobbies, but they are seasonal. Since I live in Maine I quilt in the winter months and enjoy outdoor activities in the summer. I recently took a floorcloth class and loved. I am now taking a photography class. I run, kayak, hike and garden in the short Maine summers.

    What about you?
