    I have many an interest — I do embroidery both on my machine and sometimes by hand. I also quilt, knit, crochet and do stained glass! I have even taken a quilting project and copied it in stained glass. I always keep a hand quilting project on the ready for when we are traveling in our motor home — whether on vacation or just to watch one of our adult children’s sporting events.
