I've always been into sewing. Most kids want a car for their 16th birthday--I wanted a sewing machine! A short time after my marriage, I bought a quilting sewing machine. I think I enjoy quilting because I like mathematics, & quilting is pure geometry.

That is wonderful that you are doing research on cancer

Oh it sounds more impressive than it actually is i think lol. Since i no longer have a lab and samples to work on it's now purely theoretical and research based.

Don't put it down Loopy. You're still trying to do something to help people deal with this horrible disease and you sound be proud and blessed for it.

I also collect stamps & coins. When I started collecting stamps, most kids in junior high (me, included) collected stickers. I saw stamps in a collectibles store, & felt that after a while the stickers would be useless--the stamps would never be.

I’ve just started to get back into coloring in to help with my stress and anxiety. I’ve done a few pictures, the more I do them the less stressed I get.
Im also going to try jigsaw puzzles, I bought some recently and some are Agatha Christie mystery ones Murder on the Nile and murder on the orient express . So you won’t know what the picture is until you finish it 🤦🏼‍♀️.

My husband & I are finishing our basement, so I'm unable to do anything related to most of hobbies at the current time. When we're done, there will be an area & table specifically for my sewing/crafting. Until now, any time I used my sewing machine I had to pack it up every evening even if I wasn't done.
I will also do my jigsaw puzzles there.

I don't have a "deaf accent"? Hm, hadn't noticed.

I buy and refurbish old tobacco pipes. That's my favorite hobby. The rest of my hours are spent watching streaming entertainment, (Sci-Fi, Cop/First Responder Dramas, or really practically anything with captions :) ), or sleeping.

i just got finished with cabling my road bike, i have to make sure it fits tomorrow, then if i am up to it go ride it, it is satisfying to ride something you built yourself. it has been so long since i have ridden it, i have to remember how the shifting system works

I'm a knitter - currently making lots of gnomes, but starting a sweater for granddaughter #1 now. Also love Final Fantasy XIV right now - formerly played Guild Wars 2. Then, when the weather allows, it's gardening; we have 3 raised beds mostly for veggies, then I have made a flower bed almost stretching across our fence along the street. Keeps me outta trouble - mostly.

My husband & I grow a bunch of veggies in our garden--we've made raised beds for most of them. We also have some rose bushes, & planted perennials along borders so that we don't have to worry about replanting every year.
