STNA Blog Hop

There's another STNA blog hop going on. This time, it's about stitching rituals. Here's the question:

"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?"

I don't really have any. At all. I sit in my chair at the computer desk, or in my Adirondack chair on the balcony, or in my stitching chair by the window. Sometimes I cross off my chart, and sometimes I don't. It's a different project every day except Saturday. I work on my rotation piece Friday and Saturday both. The only constants are what I have around me. I always have my scissors. They go on the left arm of the chair, or the left side of the desk. (I even do this at David's house when I stitch. The scissors must be to the left.) I don't really have a pair I prefer. I use whatever pair is closest in my stitching bag. I always wear my glasses, way down on the tip of my nose. (That way I can look over them at the world around me.) The chart of the project I'm working for sits to my right, or between my leg and the chair. Doesn't matter which leg. And my project itself. My stitching bag is nearby, but not always in the same place. I guess I'm just disorganized, lol. And now, I'm off to go stitch. Later, folks!!

I actually sit in the same place every time I stitch. It has to be on my couch where I can spread out all my stuff on the seat next to me. Yeah I end up taking up the whole couch.

LOL, Sunny, I can see that. There's so much stuff you have to have. All your little gadgets, and scissors, needles, floss, pattern, project... It takes a lot of room!!!
