But I have a secret. This winter I've actually become addicted to needlework. Yes, it can be tedious, but it also doesn't require brain power, (which is a good thing at the end of the day when my brain is worn out). It's a perfect quiet activity to keep my fingers busy while I'm watching tv, or listening to the kids work on their schoolwork.And as for being a craft for old ladies? Not so much. I'm such a doodler, this is just a new medium for my doodling. Yes, my friends there are many projects around here that would benefit from a little Mama doodling.
