I have tried loads of crafts but quilting is the pinnacle of enjoyment for me. It's the one I never get bored of - comes from my love of symmetry and colour I think.
I have a husband and 2 cats. The cats (unfortunately) are extremely spoiled. They have a chair and a bean bag next to my sewing table to discourage them from sitting on me or the quilt when I am working... Good theory but doesn't always work :)
