She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. Proverbs 31:13
She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Proverbs 31:24
I don't know about you, but I am not one that can sit and watch a movie. Most of the time it just seems like a waste of time. However, if I occupy my hands with needle and thread, or a crochet neddle and yarn, I have something to show for the time I spent listening to the moive that others wanted to watch. I have found that I work best during these times of rest for others in the household so as to not be a distraction and yet keep my hands busy.
I have set baskets around the house with a project or two from embroidery to crochet to hand quilting, so that when I find myself with a few minutes I can attend to a few stitches. I also keep a bag of projects in the car so that when I find myself waiting in an office or at a coffee shop, I can quicky pull my work out. I don't see many doing this anymore and even looks to to contrary, but so be it. Ladies fill those baskets, keep your hands busy and share your talents with those that are younger than you that they may have beautiful things to adorn their walls or share with others.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
