I am a 42 year old female, just starting a weight loss lifestyle change. I am in a long term relationship with my life partner, and we have 3 dogs and 3 cats. All my “kids” are the furry, four-legged type. I live in the southern United States where it is hot and humid most of the year. My hobbies are basically anything fiber arts related, like quilting (especially crazy quilting), tatting, cross stitch, embroidery, blackwork, machine embroidery, sewing… you name it. I used to knit, crochet, weave, and spin yarn but I cannot do the spinning and weaving anymore. I may get back to the knitting and crocheting at some point. I have way more hobbies than time to complete them!
