Good for you Christy!

I can do all five.

Retail therapy, well, as long as I don't have to worry about $$, because it's too depressing otherwise.

Changing a tire isn't my idea of a good time, but I can do it.

I'm a good cook, and have done bread, but don't anymore, because I don't have the strength in my hands for kneading.

I knitted a fair bit when I was younger, and did some nice things.

But I'd have to choose sewing. I haven't even done that for a while, but I found myself in a situation about thirty years ago where I needed to sew a garment, didn't have a machine, and it was going to be a nuisance to borrow one. So, I set out to see how it would be to do it entirely by hand. There were several very long seams, and some quite fussy stuff involved, and I was pleased to discover that not only was it possible, it was fun. And for several years I did quite a bit of sewing for myself and others, totally by hand. I still have one of the dresses I made in 1977. Can't wear it any more, but I can't give it up.

OK. You'll have to settle for it on a hanger, 'cuz I haven't been a size 10 for a long time

Front full length...



Back full length -- not a lot different...



Back of bodice for what detail can be seen. There's a big mother of pearl button closure on the yoke...



Front of bodice, is lightly gathered into the yoke..



I wore a simple gold link belt with it, and red sandals and purse.

Make bread...I can bake and cook well...I was taught how to change the tires on my car before, and I have the instructions in the emergency pack in the car, but would be most comfortable with the bread.

I should not be left in charge of anything involving needles. Period. the results would be...poor.
