Default North Carolina girl living on the Eastern Shore in Maryland

Hi I'm a newbie and have lots of questions. I'm finding I have a lot of time on my hands. Recently retired and picking up a new hobby. I crochet do needlework and read. Two small dogs that are my constant companions. And one of the sweetest husbands on the planet.
looking foward

Howdy from across the bay in Delaware! I have family living in NC. You must think you have come to the land of flat up here. LOL you have some great quilt shops over your way and when we finally reopen and you get the chance checkout Serendipity Quilt Shop in Dagsboro, DE. Lots to learn and plenty of people on here willing to help.

Well hello, waving from a safe distance away in Seattle. I am also fortunate enough to have one of the best men in the world as my husband. I'm mostly west coast, but when I was a little girl my father was in the army and so we were at Ft Bragg NC, and then I spent visiting time in Pennsylvania, and the DC/Maryland/Virginia area in my teens -- but that's been a couple decades ago now.

I never did get the hang of crochet but I'm relearning to knit. We have a number of readers here, some of us are listeners. One of the nice things about audio books is I can quilt and listen at the same time -- two hobbies in one! On the other hand, the narrator gives you something else to like/not like. There have been narrators with voices that I would listen to anything they said, and there have been narrations that annoyed me so much I couldn't listen to that book.
