I definitely prefer books over Kindle. I also enjoy washing dishes by hand.

Polskarenia- I sew, also. About to cut out a christening gown, robe, and bonnet. Lots of lace and appliques. Mother of pearl buttons. I'm a very slow perfectionist when it comes to seamstressing. Should be beautiful when it is finally done.

I agree that 'from scratch' pastry/pie crusts are the very best, and I did that too when I was still baking.
I enjoy ironing when I do it - it's meditative.
I also only read 'real' books.

I iron clothes and bed linen, cook everything from scratch, read real books, all that stuff. I also enjoy dressmaking, embroidery, knitting and crochet, just an old-fashioned girl at heart, I guess!

I'm still ironing cloths and reading from soft/hardcover books.

I like to make pie crust from scratch, cutting the fat in with a pastry cutter or two knives (no food processor). The process is soothing for me and I think the finished product turns out better.

What is something you like to do or have the old fashioned way?

(This was a question on the Mystery Reader's team and I found the responses very interesting. It will be fun to see what we all like to do or to have old-fashioned? Some of their answers were: ironing clothes, hanging clothes out on a clothesline, and reading "real" books rather than using a Kindle, etc.)

For me, I still like to mail out Christmas cards each year with a short hand written note inside. I know a lot of people have stopped sending holiday cards or they send e-cards, but I still like doing them the old-fashioned way.
