I crochet thread doilies. At one time I had so many in baskets around the house that I gave them away for Christmas to whoever was nearby, then had my friends come in and pick the ones they wanted. I love to do it, but when I'm finished w/one I just pick out another pattern and start again. I also love taking pictures when we travel.

Wow I just now saw your msg.My face is all red,sorry.
I'm not sure what type of wax your interested in.I worked with 5 different types.My favorite was the carving wax.Angels and centerpieces for weddings.
I never bought anything locally except for votive holders.Everything else was bought in bulk online.Anywhere from 50 to 500 lbs at a time,sometimes more.Not including soap supplies.
Feel free to PM me.I'll see what suppliers I can help you with.

Munky.

My hobby? Only one?

I pursue any type of needlework...cross stitch, embroidery, knitting, crocheting, anything having to do with thread, fabric or yarn. Interior design (my job).

I also love to sew, quilt....

Cooking, baking, gardening, music, dancing, reading, poetry, animals, writing....

Have also been known to dabble in woodworking and car repair.

There are so many things I'm interested in. Not enough hours in the day to pursue everything I love.

No worries.

My sister actually sells the stuff to make soaps, lotions, candles, lip balms, etc. She put together many kits that were sold through Martha Stewart Co.

That was why I was wondering.

KNITTING!

I cloth diaper my babies and love knitting their diaper covers. I also have made a few sweaters and tops for my older girls.

I guess books are my hobby. Especially, shopping for and reading cookbooks.

Depends on when you ask me. One friend once commented that I have a real passion for glass because beadwork was my current hobby, and, yes, glass/crystal are my favorites. But a passion? Nah. My husband is my true soul-mate and immediately said, "No, reading." Yes, #1. Absolutely. But I garden and cook. So, in order, reading, cooking/eating, beadwork.
