Cookie, thanks for dropping by! I did needle point while watching TV when I was younger but there is just so much of that stuff you can make before it gets to be too much! I made pillows, large pictures, and gifts. My husband and I used to play board games while watching TV! So overlapping was something I was used to do. Exercizing is relatively new to me during TV. I tried crochet and knitting but lost interest quickly. I really was not very good at it. Keeping busy with any movement burns more calories than just sitting there!
