My drug of choice.

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!!
