My biggest sewing/knitting/crocheting challenge is finding the time! Lately sleep has been winning over any of my hobbies since I’ve started working again. I’m trying to sew at least one item per week and knitting or crocheting any few minutes I have to spare since it’s easier to take with me.

My biggest sewing challenge is SOMETIMES JUST GETTING UP IN THE MORNINGS and knowing what to sew. AT 70 some times its a chore not so much body wise but mentally. Its hard when you are alone especially when its so cold. Sewing helps me keep my mind off sad things and on the important things..family and friends and spiritual needs and goals.
