Just popping in today. I found this article in the New York Times Magazine a few weeks ago and I've gone back to re-read it a couple times now. Sure, quilting and motorcycle repair aren't the same thing...but if you've ever struggled to articulate why your handcrafting is so important to you, (or why sitting down with your knitting is so appealing after a long day slogging away in cubicle-land) this article might help you put your feelings into words. Read "The Case for Working With Your Hands" at the New York Times website. Have a good night, folks, and I'll see you tomorrow with a knitterly progress report.
