    Re: What are your Hobbies?

    I finished two projects recently. This first one is a heating pad a friend asked me to make using Seminole colors--garnet and gold. It's basically 4 potholders crocheted together.



    The second one is a decorative potholder a friend asked me to make with butterflies on it.



    I'm going to be seeing both friends Thursday after work so I can give them their goodies then. I hope they like them as much as I do! I'm very happy with how they came out.

    Right now I am working on Christmas tree skirts. Will post a pick when I get them done if I can get it to post. I also got a ton of bulb ornaments on sale after Christmas and I will be making more bulb wreaths. I got some killer deals.

    I just finished about 70 hand-made Valentines for friends and family. I start with a magazine page and do collage with hearts and stickers. It is my favorite hobby project of the year. My art classes also made Valentines for Veterans which I just put in the mail to a Veterans' hospital.

    I love this one! It reminds me of a dreamcatcher.

    Thank you pikachu, I haven't seen one of these for 50 years. It brings back such memories. A part of my childhood isn't lost after all. Your crochet loops are gorgeous! I recall just using flexible material that probably came with the kit.

    I've been making more dreamcatchers/decorative potholders. Here are two recent ones. I'm about to start a blue and green one for a friend so I'll post it when it's done.

    My brother gave me a t-shirt for Christmas that says, "Earth without art is just eh" but it was on a plain blue shirt that screamed empty canvas to me. So a tie dye and some sleeve additions later...

    Re: What are your Hobbies?

    As some know, quilting is my passion (hobby)
    Right now I am working on several tee shirt quilts, people have asked me to make for graduations. 2 are for local high schools, the 3rd is tee shirts from University of Kansas.
    There's no place like home!

    My mom does those for each of her grandchildren as they graduate. I think she's on her last one right now. I'm not sure if the youngest (autistic) will actually "graduate". He's in a special school, so who knows?
