I do my stitching after midnight. It’s my way of winding down from the day. I watch a couple of hours of tv and I stitch, stitch stitch. This year I joined a group on Facebook which concentrates of stitching from stash, things you already have and need to finish. I have a lot of stash, a shameful amount. I have a list of about 20 things I have kitted up and ready to stitch, no new gems for me this year – I have plenty of projects, thank you very much. Also, I usually makes things for other people, and I will continue to do that, but seriously how do I only have two of my own finishes on the wall? So I’m a little more for me. I know having 20 things on my Finish list is a big grand, the truth is if I get 6 done I will be happy.
One of the things I like to do is learn a little bit about my project. When I make something for a friend I think of them while I stitch. It’s something I hope they can feel. While I stitch and learn about what I am stitching, I like to think I’m doing a deep dive into what makes my friend special, why they will like the thing I am making. It tells me something about them and it makes me admire them more.
I’m doing the same thing for me. Like I said before I love me a single murderess.
… and thank you stitchy friend for passing this on to me
