I love having a garden but every year it gets harder to deal with the end of the season.  Don't mind taking care of the plants or even weeding (most of the time lol) but when I get to the point where there is no more room for the final harvests it gets to be a headache.  I did get a little break this year since the fruit trees had so little on them.

Next project will be doing some long neglected crafts since I have boxes, bags and a cabinet full of things.   Will have to make some Christmas wreaths and miniature trees to give away as gifts.  That will make my husband happy as it leaves our house lol.

Besides cooking and baking,  I enjoy reading.  I have collected salt and pepper shakers for many years.  Also collect magnets.  When my husband was well and we travelled, I always bought magnets and salt and pepper shakers.  I also collect cookbooks and liked to purchase them on vacation. 

I am also a Field Editor for Taste of Home magazine and have been in several of their magazines and cookbooks.  In fact I recently received an email from them that they published a new cookbook entitled Taste of Home Best Loved Recipes---1,485 favorites from the world's #1 Food and Entertaining Magazine.  Two of my recipes which I submitted are in this cookbook.

Years ago I did a lot of sewing, made a lot of my clothing.  Recently I gave away to the Church I attend all of the material, thread, etc. that I had.  Also did a lot of crafts.  Donated that too.  Don't have the time to do either of them, with my husband's health problems and recently my own.

If I have forgotten anything, I will add to it.

Marie, for a number of years I subscribed to this magazine and the Quick one as well.  I would go through each new issue and note the recipes I thought would be good ones to try with the family.  On this list I had the month/year/and page number noted so I could quickly go to my large collection of magazine and find any recipe I wanted to locate.  That list has been one of the most used kitchen helps I've ever had.  I still, after more than 20 years, use the master list and find good recipes.

I haven't tried all of the recipes on the list, but there's always tomorrow to try a different one!

Bakery1 G, I can not begin to count the number of recipes that I have cut out and pasted into a note book or put into a folder all with the intention of trying the recipe.  I would rip out pages of magazines and keep the pages. (I would have stacks of magazines until I finally started tearing out the pages I wanted)
I must say 99.99% of the time I do not try one of the new recipes but go to a tried and true one.  Or I find one on line that I think would be better.  I am getting better about trying new recipes though.  the new ones most of the time are ones I find on line from King Arthur Flour or All Recipes as well as this site. 
Now that Nancy G. "introduced" me to My Baking Addiction site I have found quite a few interesting recipes there as well.

I like to read and cross-stitch.  Of course, that is IF I get time to do it.

Here is a picture of my first quilt.  There is no easy way to get all the photos posted, so VBB suggested I use the picture(s) as my avatar.

Bakery that looks beautiful,How lucky your kids are to have such a sweet mom.I had one that fit my crib when I was a baby that my paternal Grandma made.I had plans of using it as a wall hanging.I had it stored down the basement in a box and the basement flooded and it was ruined along with a blanket that was my maternal grandma carried all her children in.That broke my heart that is all I had from them besides pictures.I hope your kids and grand kids take good care of theirs.So much work and time to make one.

Oh Gale, I am broken hearted for you.  Neither of my grandmothers made quilts.  One of them was an artist but the fire in her studio ruined all but two of her works.  They went down the other side of the family.  I'd give my eye teeth to have at least one of them.

I bought a couple new sweatshirts and, taking a deep breath, I'm going to try to paint them.  
Her's a photo of an old, old one, front and back.




It's been a long time ...... wonder if all that paint has dried up
