Winning at Losing

I live in Alabama. I enjoy growing plants. I am married to a fantastic guy who makes my life exciting and serene (most of the time). We have several kids and grandkids. My hobbies are photography (I like taking pictures of flowers I grow), painting (really like portraits), scrapbooking and computers. Recently I have started piecing a quilt top -- love it. I enjoy most types of music but country is my favorite. I have been retired for over a year now. I've been able to enjoy many of my ...

I enjoy most types of music but country is my favorite. I have been retired for over a year now. I've been able to enjoy many of my hobbies. I like visiting our local botanical gardens and taking pictures there; however, family illness has prevented me from being away from home too much. I attend activities at Taylor Senior Center when I can.

My Goals:
I want to reach a weight where I feel good, have a lot of energy, my body is happy with the weight and where I am happy with my body. That last part will be hard because my muscle tone and excess skin are hard to deal with. My goal is also to get to a happy place in my life where I do not worry about anything, feel free to do as I please. This is what Jim tells me I should do. My goal is also to be the best wife he has ever had and to make his life fabulous.

My Program:
Eat less - exercise more -- eat good food. Be Happy. NOTE: I seem to have reached that happy place. My life is very full and wonderful right now. I am totally retired and doing so many of the things I had hoped to do when I quit my job outside the home.

Personal Information:
My name is Carolyn. I live in LA -- Lower Alabama. Celebrate my anniversary in July. I had been divorced for 25 years. I have worked all my life. I finally quit March 09. I plan to stay home and do all the things I enjoy.

Other Information:
I enjoy growing plants, taking pictures -photography, scrapbooking, computers, painting, sewing, reading and television. I can best be described as a dabbler - I dabble a little bit in this and a little bit in that. Not great at any of them. I completed the Master Gardner's Class and I hope to have a website up soon.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by!
I have used different yarns, threads and embroidery flosses to tie quilts. I choose something that has a similar personality as the quilt I'd like to tie and it also depends on the fabric. Wool yarn doesn't take to thicker fabrics for instance.
Hope you have a nice weekend.

The center of my quilt patch is taken from a work shirt for the Conroe Parks and Recreation Department. The entry rules stated the logo had to be embroidered or pieced, not painted, or digital. I checked with the officials and they allowed me to use the official patch the guys wear. I did not embroider it myself.
Thanks for looking at it.

I WISH I grew them! More than almost anything, I want to grow my own food. I want to have a homestead and I'm going to get one. But no, they're just pics I found on the internet that inspired me.

Painting class, how fun! I wish I was more creative!
I hope you have an Awesome time!
