I have been sewing and crocheting things for other people. An alteration. A contribution. A gift.
I love the feeling I get when I make something for someone else. Of course, there's the pressure to perform and the perfectionist in me looms large. But I like it.
I like spending hours finding the right thread, I like thinking about the stitches and hoping they will last when they leave my hands. And I like the challenge of another person's standards rather than my own.
