their stitches

 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.
