Hand-sewing. Hands down. Embroidery. Needlepoint. Quilting. You name it.
It’s the most relaxing thing I can do for myself. Pushing and pulling the needle through the fabric is repetitive and a “no-brainer.” It’s also a multi-tasking hobby like it’s more popular crafting cousins. I can be quiet, reflective and prayerful. Or I can listen to downloads and feed my brain. I can entertain my hands while connecting with a friend. Or I can just zone out and watch worthless movies.
Hand-sewing is a combination of ancient craft that serves total functionality in a way that I completely geek-out over! It makes me look forward to the nursing home… I’ll have no need for excuses to sit in my chair all day and do nothing but sew!!
