May Stitching Bloggers Question

Welcome to my version of the SBQ!  Every first Monday of the month, I’ll post a question about some aspect of our stitching life and you can answer it in a blog post of your own.  After you have answered, please leave a comment on this post, and be sure to include a link to your blog so others can visit and read your thoughts.  If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your answer in the comment section, but I hope that the questions will help you see that you have a lot to say and will inspire you to create a blog of your own.   

Before I move on to the Question, I want to thank Adrienne Martini, whose book, Sweater Quest, got me thinking about the big picture of why I stitch and why it makes me happy.  Since her book was my inspiration to restart the SBQ, I know I’ll be pulling several of the Questions from things that her book made me think about.  This first question was discussed at a recent reading hosted by Anna in Philadelphia.

Now….to the Question:

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.
