I used to do that all the time too. It's been a long time!
I haven't done that in a long time!!!
I have done that in the 'olden' days.What I did get back to after 40 years is knitting, every evening while watching TV w/ hubby I knit a few rows. Fun!
I think I would find it tedious, but then again I have never tried. Good for you for picking it up again! I expect to see what the finished piece looks like!
My sister use to do that all the time but I never had the patience.
Tell ya a secret ~ my *husband* does this! He's awesome at it, been doing it since he was 16 years old [he's 37] --- me, I don't have the patience. I'm more of the finger painting, paper mache, snowman building kinda craft person. :-P
Blessings on Your Day !!!!
