    Other fun things I’d add – selecting fabric for quilts – and shopping for yarn – the colors, the textures. I really enjoy knitting and crocheting. Do you knit or crochet?

    I love going to yarn shops but I don’t knit or crochet. Also love fabric shopping – of course! Oooh – just slept under my first full sized quilt and it was so nice!
