    When I have a few moments to spare, usually on rainy days (not many of them lately) or dark nights in the winter, I classify galaxies on Galaxy Zoo. I dream of having something named after me!

    What hobbies do you have?

    Love to cross-stitch!
    am now working on a 5ft square cross-stitch of my family tree with individual little pics for each person!
    As there are nearly 300 people on it Ithink it will keep me busy for a month or so!
    And as i do it in the evening I daren't eat choc etc near it so after tea snacks have gone out the window!

    Wow Capricorn they're amazing. I used to cross stitch when I was a kid, and my mum used to love doing it... makes me wonder whether I should take it up again - keep my hands busy in the evenings...

    I don't really have any hobbies that aren't food related - how boring am I!! I do love holiday planning so tend to throw myself into that quite enthusiastically whenever lucky enough to go away - whether home or abroad!!

    Hello Capricorn!
    Looks like you well and truely got the x-stitch bug like me!
    I never think to photo them when finished, doh! And I never keep them, always give them away as pressies!
    Presently I've got 21 on the go!
    There's 1 of a tiger in the moonlight thats on black aida so I can only do it in very strong light.
    I am really sad as I have already done my xmas cards, they're all enveloped up ready to send out!

    My hobbies are quite normal ones I think.

    My horses became so much more than a hobby, but have now returned to being just that.

    Antiques are a passion, antique porcelain that is . I love finding something as a bargain price and discovering it's provenance. The history of some of the pieces is fascinating and sometimes it takes me so long on the computer and in books that that keeps me out of the fridge.

    My other hobby and passion is cooking and inventing new dishes, fortunately all the most recent new dishes have been SW friendly.
