Crazy Stitching Habits #21

CSH #21I was stocking buttons at work today, when I came across one that said “Hook 310.” And I said, “310 is DMC Black!” to myself. I converted numbers to DMC thread colors in my head!

Crazy Stitching Habits #20

CSH #20You run to your local craft store every time you hear of a new cross-stitch magazine coming in!

(Some of those magazines are expensive, but you can only get them in-store because they’re imported from the UK! So I spend a lot of money on them anyway… especially if it’s got a chart I want!)

Crazy Stitching Habits #18

CSH #18Sometimes you can get so frustrated by your stitching that you yell at it as if it’s going to help fix your frustration. (You may even swear a bit or toss your stitching across the room!)

Crazy Stitching Habits #17

CSH #17You need a special pair of embroidery scissors for every project. (That’s the excuse you use as you gradually get more and more adorable embroidery scissors.)

(I have an obsession with embroidery scissors. THEY’RE SO CUTE I LOVE THEM. <3)

Crazy Stitching Habits #16

CSH #16It can be difficult to get into a good stitching groove. You’ve finally gotten comfortable and you’ve hit a good pace and speed, getting big squares of stitching done at a time. You haven’t even needed to frog once. And then… you feel the urge to go. Do you stop your groove to get up at the risk of losing your motivation and drive? Or do you keep trucking for as long as physically possible?

The big question many stitchers face in their lifetime: to pee, or not to pee?

Crazy Stitching Habits #15

CSH #15The state of your house is abysmal due to all the time you spend stitching. Dishes are piled up in the sink, the laundry baskets are overflowing, the carpets need vacuumed and the floors desperately need swept. The counters are cluttered and there’s barely any space to walk.

It’s time to reluctantly put away the stitching and clean up the house. Don’t be discouraged! Remember: once the house is clean, you can stitch again! Hopefully that’s enough motivation to get you through the things that take away your stitching time.

Crazy Stitching Habits #14

CSH #14You find yourself cursing the frog whenever you have to undo stitches. “Rip it, rip it!” Send that frog on to the next house, because he’s not welcome here!

(Confused? There’s a Term of the Week for that! Term of the Week: Frogging)

Crazy Stitching Habits #13

CSH #13You have multiples of a chart or a kit because you forgot you bought it the first time. Oh well, the original is hiding away in that stash somewhere… at least now you don’t have to dig it out!
