My First Blog Hopping Event #6

Some of us have a favorite chair that we sit in to stitch, others prefer to enjoy a steaming mug of tea while they stitch. Maybe you need to get comfortable and put on your pajamas before you pick up your needle or you simply must rearrange all the sofa pillows before you sit down. Sometimes the ritual is in the clean up when we’re done and everything must go in a certain place. What sort of stitching rituals do you have when you sit down to work on your projects?

None, wish I did, I think it would make things easier, but rituals, are just about as odd to me as being organized, or creating and following a todo list.  I do try to make sure there is some noise in the background - tv or radio, radio is better, because then I only need to listen, not watch or speak.  I do have to admit, I like to stitch alone.  I am easily distracted, lose count quite often and that is somewhat frustrating.

I think maybe if I had a couple of simple stitching routines I would get more stitchinge done.  But who knows.

Blog Hop #6 and how to join


  1. There are so many times that I wish I didn't have to be so organized and OCD. LOL So long as the pieces get made - it doesn't really matter if there was a routine, right?

  2. Maybe you can pick up a few tips from this blog hop :)

  3. I'm thinking I have too much routine right now and I'm wanting to loosen up a bit. The stitching will happen either way so I think I need to relax a bit about it all.

  4. Thank you for joining us in the blog hop!

  5. Glad to "meet" you and thanks for stopping by my blog ;)

    I too like noise in the background bit I usually have on the TV - I listen but not necessarily watch.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas.
