Question of the Month

This is posted on Lake Stitchers blog and I thought it would be fun to play along. Here is the question for this month:

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 am most definitely a project stitcher. I have lots of projects going on now and it is driving me crazy. I really want to focus and get some of the projects done. I am in financial reporting so process and order are a big part of my life.

ANG is mailing the class selections this week and I am so excited to see what I got. This will create another 2 to 4 projects. I am also going to take a class that a friend is teaching as part of her requirement to complete her NAN certification. That class will be in July or August. All these projects are not making me comfortable but I am having fun.

I don't have any pictures to post because I did not lift a needle all weekend. We had a Derby party on Saturday so I had to get the house ready and Sunday was the fundraiser for Chicago House. My dress was a hit. We did buy a trip from the silent auction. We are going to Santa Fe. The package includes airfare on American to anywhere in the US and two nights at The Encantado hotel/spa. We love New Mexico and Taos. I am not sure if we will stay more than two nights at this hotel or move up the mountains to Taos. I am sure we will make this at least a week long trip. In the area there are resorts with mineral baths and spas that I might want to stay at. If you have any suggestions for must do's in this area, please leave me a comment.

This week should be quiet so I am going to get some stitching done. We are going to visit my Mom for Mother's Day so we will be out of town for the weekend. Hopefully, I can get some stitching done in the car. Happy Monday. Kelly

  1. Great choice going to Santa Fe and Taos. It's always beautiful and inspiring there. In SF,try Cafe Pasqual's for breakfast. I am definitely a project stitcher and in other aspects of my daily routine; I have always enjoy cleaning house, certainly not for the process but for the results. However, when it comes to playing with my stitchy stash, I enjoy it before, during and after! Wishing you a great week.
