I've always done a lot of sewing, and have become addicted to knitting after learning from my mother in law a couple of years ago. A confirmed homebody and chronic putterer, I also do lots of reading and writing in my spare time. During the day I teach eighth grade.
"Have not the wisest of men in all ages, not excepting Solomon himself, -- have they not had their HOBBY-HORSES; -- their running horses, -- their coins and their cockle shells, their drums and their trumpets, their fiddles, their pallets, -- their maggots and their butterflies?" -- Tristram Shandy
