on finding a craft that does not involve counting
I had a bag of roving (wool) that I had bought and divided along with a few friends at the end of spring, but it sat waiting until the rains kept me inside long enough to sit down and do something besides digging in the dirt with these hands of mine.
At first the wool just looks like a blob while you poke away at it with (a very sharp) felting needle.
"ouch! ouch!" (me)
"What in the world are you doing?" (him)
"I'm making a bird. Do you think it looks like a bird yet?" (me)
poke, poke, poke....
2 days later on the couch in evening.
"How a 'bout now? A bird?"
So, I guess I found a crafty thing I enjoy.
Now, to find some protection for my poor fingers.
