Thoughts on Thursday...

We all love crafting, sewing, quilting, scrap booking, knitting, embroidery, painting etc and we may dabble in a little bit of everything...however...

if you had to pick just one...what would your favorite be?

Ok, let me make it harder with a crazy story. You are going to be on a deserted island for one year and can only take one hobby (and all the things for that one hobby) with you...What would it be?

Oh, yeah...there will be electricity on this island. Let's not get too crazy with this story! (and my island will have potato chips too)

ONE hobby...ONE snack

Sorry, can't use your computer as your hobby. Lol !!

Mine are...quilting and Pringles chips

Let's hear from everyone to see what the most popular hobby is!!

Happy Thursday,
~Karen~

    ReplyDelete
  47. Quilting - it's my ONLY hobby. And probably sea salt & cracked pepper lentil chips, although I can't think of a snack I wouldn't get sick of eventually. Unless it's peanut butter granola bars, which I've been eating every day for breakfast for about six years now.

  71. De-lurking to answer this one! Had to make choices just as you mentioned only the island DH was taking me too is inhabited...we were going to AU for 2 yrs. I decided to bring quilting...hand applique and piecing. As for a snack, I would bring a drink...Diet Dr. Pepper.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  76. Quilting and dark chocolate covered almonds.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Such a fun question! I immediately began to think practically about what particular craft would be most useful on a deserted island---what?? :D I also immediately thought hot tea for my snack, but then realized that I could probably make my own tea by boiling water and using some kind of island tree leaf to flavor it (umm...this all flew through my head in a matter of seconds). Time to throw caution to the wind! My choices would be painting and chocolate-covered almonds!

    Loved reading all the comments! :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. Sewing...that covers so many aspects of the craft...it was a toss up between sewing and knitting, I just learned how to purl for the way i knit and then thought how hot this tropical island would be and decided to take sewing! My first passion. I love the idea of the person who said Tom Sellick! I would take my husband, but he isn't a food, so i would say Grapes...I love grapes, green, red, seedless or seeds!
    That took me a while to decide...so it is Sewing and Grapes (and DH if i can bring my best friend)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  86. Cross Stitch and ICE CREAM!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I have a business painting custom dishes. I do make (some) money with it, but it's also still a hobby, it's still fun for me. SO, I would take my dishes w/paints and Hershey kisses :)

    ReplyDelete

  91. I found you recently through pinterest and fell in love with your blog. I love your craft space! I am a "stamper/scrapbooker". Luckily I don't have many other crafts since I'm on 5 stamp companies/challenge design teams so I have an easier choice - stamping would be what I bring with me. And I guess Lays BBQ chips would be my food of choice.
