    I do so many different things, let's show each other our other talents...

    The first 2 pictures are made of vinyl and applied to an old window (1st pic) and the cornice board above my kitchen (2nd pic).

    The last picture is my grandson and a distressed canvas that I did after manipulting in Photoshop. If anyone is interested in any of these, PM me.

    So, show us your other talents!!!!!

    It's been awhile but I did landscape and folkart painting. I also did porclein dolls. For my last birthday my DS got me some oil paints and brushes so I can paint again. I'm alittle scared to try again.

    I used to paint but haven't picked up a paintbrush in a long time. I am enjoying quilting too much. Here are pics of some of mine.

    I love your other things.

    I think most of us do lots of other things. i tend to bring them into my quilting such as painting blocks, adding embroidery etc.

    silk thread blackwork 35 years old and fabric has yellowed; need to clean it but haven't the nerve to unframe it yet. I need to undo all the stitching holding it into the frame, then figure out how to brighten the white without damaging the thread. Someone here said to try Polident, so I may start with that.

    I knit hats, scarfs and mittens and sell a few to pay for more yarn then give the rest to charities, have made dolls in the past not anymore. Sewing is my favorite.

    I'm a crochet designer - here are a few of my favorite designs. I have a pretty successful website and I'm working on trying to get a book submitted for publication consideration so I don't get to quilt as often as I would like :'(

    Besides quilting I mainly do beading - jewelry and stuffed animals (search for spare time to find my animals) and really enjoy counted cross stitch and canvas work. Recently moved and trying to get my designated room organized into sections. Here are a few of my animals.

    my favorite - a dragon

    I make handmade soap and do scrapbooking. I have hooked a couple of rugs, but that takes way too long, and I've done needlepoint, but not for a long time.
