One stitch, two stitch, three stitch. A friend recently remarked on my patience as I embroider by hand or crochet one stitch at a time to create something.

And yes, there’s patience. But a large part of it is the need to produce, the need to be useful, and the desire to create something. In the absence of other outlets, and abilities, it seems the most logical to use the one at my disposal.

Or go insane. But who’s to say the two are mutually exclusive.
