Me and the fine motor skills

I've known since elementary school that my fine motor skills aren't the best. I always had the worst grade in handicrafts. My mum had to knit for me secretly at home (Danke sehr, Mami!).

I was also briefly allowed to get a taste of the sorting: New tobacco is just arriving and there are great leaves for the binder. It has to be separated from the filler tobaccos. It's fun, but it takes a lot of experience and I was very insecure.
