My mother calls me the youngest old person she has ever known.
When I was younger I loved to knit and I use to knit stuff all the time.
When I was in college I crocheted (I'm probably spelling this wrong), my friends thought it was weird but I thought it was fun.
Now I quilt on my free time and it's super fun, when my mother found out about it (she also new about the other hobbies) she was said wow you're an old person!
I think quilting is really gearing up though to be a "young" hobbie again, like knitting is cool right now, a lot of friends have taken up knitting for fun now, and soon it will be quilting turns. As I see it I'm just ahead of the game.
