1. I like quilting! (You probably already knew that!)
My quilting hobby began with my local quilt group which started around 20 years ago (yikes!) with a bunch of teachers and other people who worked at my school.
years - friendship quilts, swaps, charity quilting - you name it. These women are pretty special to me!
2. I like golf!
Now that doesn't mean that I am a good golfer. Actually, I am pretty bad at it, but the thing that makes it fun is my friends (many from my quilt group) who I play with every Tuesday. We play at the Par 3 golf course here in town, and we spend much of that time laughing about our playing, enjoying the conversation and the walk and the beautiful weather along the way.
That has been true my whole life. I am never very far from a book (or my iPad or Nook, which I also read on.). Lucky for me, my friends also love to read, and our book club has read many interesting books during the time we've been together. The town we live in, Loveland, Colorado, has a program called Loveland Loves to Read. The book for this year, and my book club's October book, was The Work of Wolves, by Kent Meyers.
For our October meeting, we attended a talk given by Kent Meyers, and we were all so fascinated by the way he described his writing process. Just as characters become real to the reader, they also become real to this writer, and when he sits down to write, he says he can't wait to find out what these characters are going to do in the story next!
4. I like blogging, and all of the friends I have met and made through this activity! I hope you know who you are!
I so appreciate the people who read my blog and leave comments, and the people I've gotten to know through places like the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and Oh Scrap! link-ups. I made this quilt in 2014 because I started following Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun than Housework and participating in her Scrap-a-Palooza series, and discovered the world of scrappy quilting! My quilting life has really never been the same since. Quilt bloggers are a huge source of inspiration and fun for me!
5. One last thing I like - going out for breakfast! And this morning I get to do just that with two of my retired teacher friends. We're going to celebrate our friendship, and find out what's going on with each other in this new stage of life, and eat at one of our favorite restaurants! Yum!
Wishing you a lovely Thursday, filled with all the things you like!
