I like to cross stitch and quilt. I also scrapbook.

Scrapbooking and quilting I don't get a lot of time to do since it takes a lot to set up everything. Cross stitching I do regularly since I can just leave it on the shelves next to my chair and work on it while watching TV or a movie.

Currently I'm making Christmas presents and the project I am working on at the moment is a gift for someone who potentially could come to this board since she's a JM member and had a large family so no pictures of that!

Reading or baking...if those could be considered hobbies?

I am finding no time to read right now with seven kids, including a newborn, babysitting for extra cash, PTO and Policy Commitees at the kids schools, and taking two classes this semester. I have two books sitting here next to my computer just begging to be read. LOL

I bake almost daily though, its relaxing. Its the not eating it thats stressful. I just bought a half peck of apples from the orchard and plan to bake apple crisp later. I am also teaching my oldest boys to cook/bake because it seems like a lot of girls nowadays aren't interested in learning....I can't have my sons starving later when they are married. LMBO

I love to read, scrapbook, photography, and make hair bows.

I don't find time to scrapbook hardly ever, plus it just get so expensive to buy all the stuff! I love reading, and make time to read after the kiddos are in bed, but I actually am not into a good book right now, I need to get one! I also just started making my girls' hair bows b/c they are SO expensive in he stores, and they are really easy to make! Plus it's fun, and I can make a bow in like 10 minutes, so I feel like i've actually accomplished something in such little time! Eventually if I get good i'll probably try to sell some. I'll have to get some pics of my bows, I don't have any yet. I also LOVE taking pics of my kids, and playing with them on-line. I'd love to take a photography class on day....ah dreams....
