  • Hobbies, what are they???

    One of my favorite things to do is cross stitching. It actually relaxes me after a hard day.

    What I'm showing you are Christmas Stockings that I have made for every member of my family and the Grandchildren. Nobody gets their stocking until AFTER I die!! lol I want to make sure they are taken care of.

    Please share your hobbies with us, pics if you have them.

      For quiet time I read, for activity and fun I place hockey. If I can't play then I skate. Something about being on the ice is relaxing to me. I think it's my competitive nature.

        Does spending most of my nights on this forum count???

        I swing dance several nights a week (lindy hop mostly..hence my profile pic) and I hand wood carve. I'm a big fan of celtic knots and the dragon posted is one of my early carvings about 6 or 7 years ago. The Cheshire cat was done a couple of years ago. I'm self taught.

          Oh gee, let me think. I do lots of different types of needle work, I sing, I garden, I read, I bake. If I still had a piano, I'd play it. I keep tropical fish. If I ever get a house where I can have more and bigger aquariums, I'd like to try my hand at breeding Australian dwarf rainbow fish. I have a really nice pair that have spawned, but I don't have any place to set up a seperate tank for them, so all the eggs get eaten.

          Hmmmm. I wonder if I can get a decent pic of them.

            I feel like a loser lol. I don't do anything creative. When I have time, I am playing with Autumn and Tobler. That is my life till she is a teenager and hates me lol.

              I'm not at all 'crafty', just don't have the patience for it-just have patience for the dogs, LOL. I do love to garden, and bird watching. Like to read, and do some writing too. And, of course, the dogs.

                  My g'ness, let me see...

                  I love to cook (NOT bake, COOK!)

                  I like to read a lot, especially shorter articles, Reader's Digest type stuff.

                  I love talking about religion and politics with people.

                  I enjoy surfing the net, especially this website.

                  I enjoy learning things that are fun to me.

                  I enjoy singing, but I'm not very good. My husband always threatens he's going to tell the church choir director to count me in, lol.

                  That's all I can think of at the moment.

                        I love to bake (cooking not so much). Surfing the web and learning new things. Meeting new people and new animals. If I had more time to devote to "crafty" things I enjoy scrapbooking. But I don't have that much time on my hands:-(

                          I also like to read. I love to camp, but I don't know if that is considered a hobby.

                            not crafty

                            But thanks for sharing those pictures of great talent.

                            Lets see, I sing in church choir, bake rarely but good, hike a lot with my pooches and I am an Amateur Radio Operator (where I met my forever Boyfriend, mostly men in the hobby). Reading including this board and playing with my beloved dogs takes up lots of spare time. I don't get T. V. so I have some time.

                            Dog Shows, my favorite hobby sort of almost an avocation. So many so beautiful dogs.
                            Money will buy you a pretty good dog but it won't buy the wag of it's tail.

                              Mine.....

                              I love to quilt and do embroidery. I am an avid movie buff, I have 1400 videos and about 600 dvds. I am in the process of creating my theater room to actually look like a movie theater. Enjoy life and living to the fullest, meeting/making new friends all around the country. I think that's enough....
