Re: Easter Promises
I love to garden, cross stitch read, and cook. These are also great ways to express myself as well as be a little creative and reduce stress. That's a win-win.

I love to read. Beyond that I have a lot of interest in technology/gadgets, environment & politics. But in my reading, I love contemporary funny romances, romantic suspense & urban fantasy. A little all over the place. I think I enjoy the escapism that books offer. I'm in them for the pure entertainment value.

After my family, my biggest
passion is reading with a side of
gardening thrown in.

How perfect that you could combine both of your loves in one special project. I am anxious to read 'Easter Promises'.

Love to read, but then I knit, embroider, sew & crochet. I always have a project on the go.

Allie, I've really enjoyed your Kentucky Corners books. I was first drawn to them because my hubby is a Kentucky boy, plus I love your story-telling! I've always loved to do handwork, knitting, crocheting, embroidery of many forms, and lots of sewing, from playclothes for my kids to wedding dresses for daughters.
I'm now learning tatting from a young mom, when her daughters and my granddaughter are in dance class. I agree, we need these outlets, especially when we're stressed. But I learned my lesson years ago when I was knitting a sweater while watching a particularily scary movie. I looked at the sweater sleeve afterwards and the rows I knitted during that movie were so tight I had to rip them all out!

I tried knitting, but never got past the flat stage and into sleeves and such. But I have crocheted just about anything one can. And, as you mention with knitting is great for calming one's nerves. I also love gardening, both flower and vegetable gardening. And reading, of course. I keep a book going at all times. My problem is too many interests. I find I need more than 24 hours in a day. LOL

I like to solve mysteries and read them. I am too hyper to knit. I like your books though, I'm from Kentucky.

Reading is about it for me; I do knit but not much anymore, I sew but not often either, love crochet but no time for it.

These are so fun to read. I've always
maintained knitters are readers and
readers are knitters, but it seems
readers are also crocheters,
seamstresses, and gardeners. I'm
waiting to meet the reader-
chocolatier...there's a combo I'd enjoy!

I'll have to get this book for my
daughter. She will enjoy it. We are
pretty careful with our animals, the are
all doomed to non-reproductive lives
when they join the family whether they
are, dogs, cats, sheep, goats, or
My passion is reading. Hard to choose
just one topic. It really depends on my

I love to read and and trying to instill that passion in my kids but they have not caught the bug I have for it yet --- like scrapbooking, and most crafty things to do with color/drawing and making a mess:) Puzzles are also good.
