Crazy Stitching Habits #12

CSH #12

Your stash is so large, it’ll take more than nine lives to use it all! You have stacks of pretty fabrics, boxes and boxes of organized threads, a sewing box full of needles, and enough charts and kits to make anyone jealous.

CSH #11

Your friends and family can tell when you’ve been stitching because you and/or your work area are covered in the little bits of thread you’ve snipped as you stitch.

Crazy Stitching Habits #10

CSH #10

As a stitcher, you can put your needles in a variety of places for temporary safe-keeping. The problem is keeping track of where they all go because you often forget you left it there.

Here are some places your needles can be in case you’ve lost one:

  • the couch cushion or arm
  • the floor
  • the curtains
  • somewhere in your clothes
  • a pet’s collar
  • a pin cushion (yeah right like it ever ends up there)
  • your project
  • your project you aren’t working on at the moment
  • a counter top
  • a spouse, child, or relative’s body part (from stepping, sitting, or otherwise coming in contact with the needle)

(I once stuck a threaded needle in the arm of a chair for a moment and walked away only for one of my cats to jump up and start eating the thread. She nearly had the needle in her mouth when I came back and pulled the whole thing, thread and all, out in one pull. She seemed very offended I saved her life. Silly cats.)

Crazy Stitching Habits #9

CSH #9

Some people don’t mind it, and I don’t most of the time, not when the mistake can just be worked around… but I had a project recently, a kit, where I’d used the wrong shade of green… one had 6 skeins, the other only had 3 skeins and that was the one I used on accident, so I couldn’t tear out the color because I was out of the shade. I was so discouraged I wanted to just toss out the kit and start over with something new. πŸ™

The worst is when you realize you’ve made the mistake after hours of stitching… because then you have to undo all the work you put into it. So frustrating!

Don’t know what frogging means? There’s a Term of the Week on it!

I was writing some articles today that mention mistakes I’ve made in pieces… I’m sure no one else would ever notice them, but they stand out like sore thumbs to me!

For me, it was when I went to Ellis Island and the Immigration Museum. I ended up taking a lot more pictures of the stitchery examples they had than the rest of the museum! I meant to upload pictures here, but the pictures keep disappearing. I find them and lose them again. One day, one day!

Crazy Stitching Habits #4

CSH #4

When you finish a project you’ve been working on and complaining over for [INSERT TIME: days, weeks, months, years] there is a brief moment of celebration. β€œI did it! I’m finally finished!” And without any sort of break you immediately pull out a new project and start into it. The drive of stitching is strong enough to make you forget all the time and blood and tears that it took to finish the last one.

Crazy Stitching Habits #3

CSH #3

This is how it would have been for me before I started working at Joann’s, if not for the fact my local store did a total store renovation a couple months before I started working there and everything was moved around… I had to re-learn where everything was!
