I know how that can be - my first MIL was a WIZARD with knitting needles, not only perfect at it but so fast. I was never EVER going to be that good.... and my daughter was always much better (in a "little miss perfection" sort of way) at cross stitch. They were goal-oriented, as opposed to my being process-oriented. For me, it always was about the journey, not the destination.... (to quote Are-Sis....)
Loving fantasy since 1960 or so, FRPGs since 1975 (appx), and CRPGs since 1985....
When the Dark comes rising, six shall turn it back,
Three from the Circle, three from the track;
Wood, bronze, iron; water, fire, stone:
Five will return, and one go on alone.
