I think it is important to try and find at least a little time to devote to this craft daily. Sometimes life doesn't cooperate but I know that I feel more grounded and centered when I make the time for stitching.
I had to go to a sporting event tonight at the high school and the fireplace mantle scarf was too big to carry with me. I spent far too much time looking for the supplies to take a smaller project with me, eventually coming up with some size 13 needles and ribbon yarn for a new scarf. I need to always have a project on the ready to take with me in the future.
