Busy Hands

For as far back as I can remember, my mom has always had her cross-stitching in hand while watching television.  While she was here, she and the boys charged through all seven Harry Potter movies.  She hadn’t seen them before.  Soren was fascinated by her cross-stitching and pretty much begged her to teach him.  Being the patient, doting Granny, she hauled the boys down near Mission Bay to a little cross-stitching haven that she often orders stuff from back in Utah.  Small world.  She got Soren a little kit and here they are, happily occupied during the next show.  I have no idea where Soren’s cross-stitching is now, but Anders keeps begging me to ask Granny when she’s going to send him his penguin.  Any idea what he’s talking about, Mom?  :)
