It's been almost 3 years since Renee "The Blonde Librarian" hosted this fun meme. I'd like to thank Lee for bringing it back to life again. And without futher a-do ~ ~ ~ ~
Lee the Lake Stitcher Stitching Bloggers Question of the 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.
Wow that is a tough first question to get me back in the Meme mood. And you're right most the time I feel like I fall in the middle. But to be perfectly honest I'm not a "project" stitcher. I don't have the discipline to sit and stitch every day and steadily move through a project, one project at a time, until it is complete.
Which is amusing as my real life job is "project" oriented and must be completed in a set time. Don't get me wrong there have been times when the need had risen, when I had to finish a project in a set amount of time - for a wedding or birth announcement. So if push, come shove I could do it.
But considering that I have around ten projects that I've been working on slowly but steadily since before 2003, I guess that would peg me as a "process" stitcher. I go through stitching phases that last for a few months to a year and stitching slumps that can last for a couple of months to years. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever clear the WiPs page on my website. But in the end it's simply being able to put needle and thread to cloth that makes me happy and if something gets finished all the more to set up and cheer about it.

And speaking of progress I managed to finish motif 15 of BWWS. Sorry no picture as it's 11:30pm and my scanner isn't hooked up to the computer tonight.
Once again I'd like to thank Lee for kick starting the SBQ Meme.
And that's all for this blog blurb.
