Thanks Kye but that isn't MY quilt although I do hope that mine will be as good once finished crossed  crossed  And I do hope that she will treasure it and pass it on to her children etc big_smile That is a  photo from the people that I have ordered the pattern from. I will post a photo of mine as soon as I have finished it thumbsup

I am sure that your own quilt will be more beautiful, as you are making it for a person you love...and that little girl will treasure it always...

Re: New/old hobby... past time, what is yours?

I sew, knit, paint (a little, though I'd like to take some classes when I have time), make soap, bake for other people and years ago I took a pottery class (throwing on a wheel) that I loved and did that for awhile until we moved to North Carolina.  I just haven't found a place to do it again since we moved here.

Re: New/old hobby... past time, what is yours?

i think my best description would be making things. i have a collection of jewellers tools that i use for turnin silver into "objects" as jewellry wouldnt be the best term for it at present.  lol, if been making a silver chain for the past 12 months but each time i solder a link another lets lose from heat transference. i also joined a lapidary club for a while, polishing stones but time management became a bit poor as we were building a house at the same time. general furniture like bookcases and coffeetables and the wife got me building a bridge last week for the front garden.
other than that, cooking. no recipes, just experiment to find what goes best for a meal or snacks. i like to think all the books i read is information gathering for projects i end up doing, but i do enjoy my sci fantasy books the most.

Re: New/old hobby... past time, what is yours?

I wish I had more time for hobbies!
I LOVE textiles, I have honed this down to my favourite which is knitting (and a little bit of crochet and such) plus I am teaching myself to sew. I love making useful things, I would love to make most of my clothes! (Dream dream)
And I also have a love of paper work, especially making cards.  Including pop up cards!
And thanks to digital cameras I am adding photography, such fun!
cool  big_smile

Re: New/old hobby... past time, what is yours?

For the last year or so I've re-started collecting vinyl.
I worked in a record shop for a year when I was 17.
I've always had a stronger attachment to vinyl over CD's and lately, downloads.
Now I play more music I haven't heard for ages or I have never heard before. big_smile

crochet, knitting, embroidry, cross-stitch, quilting, sewing, scrapbooking......I think I've tried most crafts. Right now I'm not really into any of those....I do miss cross-stitching the most.

World of Warcraft.   whistle

Don't really have much time for things at the moment, what with being in the final stretch before exams.  I used to ride but it's really inconvenient as I'm living in the city now.
