I really enjoyed reading about everyones hobbies, some made me laugh and it is nice to see the diversity in what everyone enjoys doing. I have other things I do besides quilting. I raise bearded iris, make hand made soaps, embroider, knit, crochet, sew, can up my garden produce the years I plant one. I put in a big garden once every few years and can it all up, enough to last two or three years and it does save time doing this instead of a big garden every year. A small garden when I have time for the salad greens and fresh veges. I love to go to goat shows and to replace my job I can no longer do I will be photographing the winning goats for owners. When my tractors are up and going I like to do the tractor rides, if you have never seen or done one of these it is a blast. Farmers have their antique tractors and will meet at one town and drive them to another town in a procession, they tend to stop for dinner and then drive back. Many have added a second seat for their wives and/or favorite dog and some even tow a small people hauler behind for the kids and other friends/family that want to go, they usually choose a scenic route and it is a blast! I haven't done one in years!
I probably spend the most tiem reading books (listenign to audio books as i am paritally blind). However i think I enjoy hiking, riding my bike, swimming and just beign in the outdoors. Beign aq Naturist, I prefer to enjoy the outdoors whiel also beign naked when possible, because it just fels more natural and free than beign bound in my movements by clothing.
Classical music,painting,shooting ( not the type in the news) grandchildren,travel,card playing,cooking,politics and continuing education of all types especially science.Also I enjoy a good book currently working on1123 on my I pad.Museums of all kinds are also an interest and does not cost alot
I do a lot of computer programming for fun, and just finished competing in a programming contest about a month ago. I used to play (and listen) to music. Ive played a variety of different instruments for about 12 years until going to college. I also like to read about world history, and science basically all of the time, lol.

That is amazing! Although not my "#1" hobby, I do some quilt work. No hand quilting or piecing but some machine piecing. I really like applique and did some of that by hand but it is getting hard to hold a needle long enough now so went to machine for this as well.
My first love is wokdcarving then sculpture with clay. I enjoy several other forms of art or craft, including wood craft. I'd say "remodeling" was on the list but lately I feel like that should actually be "collecting remodeling supplies" .
