H IS FOR......................


HOBBIES

Crocheting-I've been crocheting since I was 12, which has been a few moons ago. I leaned to make granny squares, and boy did I make lots of those. But I really love making doilies. I have them all over my house. This is a pretty green one I just finished a couple weeks ago.

Scarpbooking-I've been scrapbooking for about 20 years. I have to say I'm addicted to this hobby. I love getting new "stuff" to make my pages. I am going to a scrapbook crop on Saturday. What the heck is that? It's where people get together and work on scrapbooks. It's lots of fun and I get to work on a scrapbook. I have about 10 of them going right now. But I won't show you all of them. lol I am working on my twin grandbabies scrapbooks right now. Bella and Luke will be 1 year old Sunday. Their scrapbooks are in chronological order. I am up to September so I have lots of work to do.

Books-reading is another obsession to me. I love reading a good book. I don't stick to just one genre of book. I pretty much read anything. But my favorite is reading a good murder mystery. 99% of my books come from my library. I also pick up books at rummage sales and second hand stores. I have lots of books here at home. They are scattered all over the house. I've recently started reviewing books for publishers and authors.  I also go to a book club at our library every month. We just had our July meeting. This month we are reading Persuasion by Jane Austen. Have you read any good books lately? This is my library.

Well, I think I've covered all my hobbies for now.
