I took two little doll quilts to the hospital waiting room to keep my hands busy without being on an electronic device .
A little project to pull out or put away as the mood (or opportunity) strikes.
It's a good thing to have a hobby that requires no electricity or battery, is productive, quiet, and portable. I highly recommend hand sewing. (I've tried knitting and crocheting, and hated my results.)
Quilting time is praying time when you're a praying person. Which I am.
Waiting for a cardiac surgeon to come out and tell you how things went with your husband is a long wait. Prayer is essential. Quilting is optional. But when you can do two things at once, it's great.
Unfortunately, I hated the binding job I did on those two quilts, so I won't show them till I've redone them.
