I have made different types of curtains/window coverings and pillows. I cross stitch and make intricate Christmas stockings. I have created or improved many Halloween costumes and made decorations for the house, including lining a small coffin we built.

I made a vest and chaps for a pageant my younger granddaughter was in and I am the official Girl Scout badge sew-er onner for my older granddaughter.

My wife still makes her own clothes.
She is also into tatting, embroidery, knitting: along with gardeining and piano playing.

As for me...philosophy, writing, reading, gym, outdoors, sport etc

Sadly, I didn't make the best of the time I spent last year in my hometown and I didn't get my mum or my grandma (who has been doing it since she was 14) to teach me Sad

I wish my girls wanted to learn. I have a lot of knowledge, as well as tools and gadgets, that I have gathered for decades that will one day go to waste.

Hand-sewing, in particular, is becoming a lost art.

Horses. I showed for many years, came out with a few national champions.
Antique cars. 1910 Maxwell, 1925 Chrysler

And....

Hand sewing: cross stitch and embroidery. I'd love to sew clothes, but I could never get along with those confound machines.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

RE: What are your hobbies or passions?
In no special order:

1. Listening to music (all kinds -- classical, jazz, rock, blues, country, you name it).
2. Reading (fiction, poetry, philosophy, religion, science, mathematics, ...).
3. Chess.
4. Bicycling.

Things I used to do, but would hurt myself if I tried them now: football, softball, basketball, golf, rock climbing, playing guitar.

Anjele, that's interesting, I turned my sewing hobby into a business. I make custom draperies and pillows and bedding for interior designers all over Portland. The trouble is that I used to love to sew for fun and made my own clothes but now I'm so tired of sewing and cutting and making patterns that I just buy most of my clothes. Hate doing that but I don't have time to sew for myself now.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
