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?
At home I do have a set stitching spot. It's the right end of the couch with the end table at my right. I can sit at the other end if I have to, but this is my comfy stitching spot. My scissor holder and "thread bucket" are always on the table, ready for stitch time. I like to have all of my supplies gathered before I settle in. And it's always nice to have something to watch while I stitch. It shouldn't be anything complicated or intense, which is why Lifetime movies are an excellent choice, along with episodes of Hoarders or Big Brother for example. When I'm done stitching, everything has to get zipped up in my project bag. If you'll remember, I have very curious and sometimes very bad cats. So putting away is just as an important part of my ritual as setting up!
