Lovely Lee, over at Lake Stitcher is doing a month meme for cross stitchers. Here is May’s question:
There are those who enjoy the “process” of stitching. They stitch for stitching’s sake and if something gets finished, so much the better, but it’s not necessarily the end goal. Primarily, it’s the application of needle and thread to cloth that makes them happiest.
Then there are those who are “project” stitchers. They move steadily through their projects, certainly enjoying their stitching time, but finding their greatest joy in the completed stitching.
If you had to pick one to describe yourself, which type of stitcher would you be? I imagine that we could all say that we fall somewhere in between, but really think hard about this and try to pick just one. And once you’ve decided whether you’re a Process or Project stitcher, tell us if your recognize that approach in other parts of your life.
At first I thought I was a mixture of both kinds of stitchers. But after I did really think about it, I think I am a process stitcher. I say this as I can take breaks from stitching and not worry about getting something complete, unless it’s for a gift or is charity stitching. Although I love to finish something, I found it’s the last few stitches in a piece at are the most satisfying.
That being said, I will take a few photos of what I’ve been working on.
Another love in my life-collage is all about getting the pieces together to create that special piece of one-of-a-kind art. Tell me that isn’t process work?
