I'm older than I look and much younger at heart than my birthday suggests. At least, I hope I am! I used to have a stressful, responsible and sometimes-I-wonder-why-I-do-it job, but am now supposedly self-employed - which means less stress, but less income too .. When I'm not being academically or professionally occupied, my time is spent living rich fantasy lives. Unless I'm engaged in creative textile stuff, that is.
I write, I game, I do manips and graphic art, and I've been doing all three much longer than I care to think about.
And I sew. And knit. And spin, and weave, and braid, and quilt, and dye, and paint, and stamp, and occasionally finish something I've been working on.
