nine what? i don't know really.
but i do know stitching is relaxing for me. if i'm feeling stressed it calms me. i just focus on one stitch after another and my troubles fall away for a little while.
stitching fills all of the idle moments in my life and makes them more bearable. it keeps my hands busy while i'm waiting. i always seem to be waiting.
stitching inspires me. when i stitch i let my mind wander. i think about things. i think up things. then later i do the things i've thought up. i think that's pretty cool.
