Have your five-month old grandson keep you up all night because he is teething. In a day or two, having fallen asleep over books and meals, you'll find your jeans a little loose around the waist.
Not to complain. Babies are great. When they're unhappy, they suffer. When they're happy, they glow. They don't try to manipulate except on the most basic of terms.
Problem is, as much as I love the babies, I've had little time to work on my passion: textiles.
I've got boxes of fabric and yarn and two bookcases of project instructions.
