May Stitching Bloggers question

Lee of Lake Stitcher is going to post a question on the first Monday of the month for all stitchers. So I am putting the question here as well. I will give my answer and let her know that I have done so.

May Question:

Suppose we say that there are two types of stitchers.

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.


I would have to say that I am a little of both. I start a project with the intention of finishing. Sometimes I get bored with it so then it turns I am a process stitcher. I pull it out just to put in a couple of stitches. I also like t o clean the house to get it done til next time and then sometimes just to get the worse of it out of the way.
