30 Things: Number 23


23. List your top 5 hobbies and why you love them.

1. Quilting.  If I have to explain myself, you are on the wrong blog and should leave now.

2. Writing.  I love to write.  I love to express myself with the written wordDownload 9112011 054.  Two books under my belt, and two waiting to be written.

3.  Riding our motorcycle.  Well, one of them anyway. 

4. Reading.  I love to read… fiction, non-fiction, you name it.  But I ‘m not really sold on audio books.  I need to try another one I think, because it’s hard to choose between sitting and quilting and sitting and reading.

5.  Hanging out with my family.  I know, it’s not really a hobby, per say, but I love it.


I don’t know if I mentioned it or not, but I’m teaching a hand quilting class in October in Clawson, Michigan.  If you’re interested, check out their website at: http://www.cameoquilters.org/  The workshop will be held at Clawson United Methodist Church 208 N. Main St., Clawson, MI.

I am also looking for a location in Genesee County to hold a hand quilting workshop.  If you are interested in learning the hand quilting stitch, drop me a line and let me know.  I’m open to a small-group setting of 6-8 people in a home or church, or a larger group in a larger setting. 


30 Things: Number 22


22. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?

Oh my… difficult to answer!  But it’s just speculation… a guess at best, so here goes.

future5 years:  Living in a different house, writing and quilting for a living.  One more grandchild than what I have now (hope hope hope).

10 years: More time to relax, not as much pressure. Doing some traveling and exploring… just because.  Talking into my wrist watch to send an email.

15 years: Doing whatever I feel like doing, when I feel like doing it.  Perhaps space travel.  Saturn might be nice.  I wonder if those are diamond rings?


OK, I really don’t like this question.  But I committed to doing all 30 questions, so that’s as much as I’m going to give this one!  LOL How can we possibly know what will happen in 5 days, much less 5 years?!?!?
