Are we there yet?

Well, not quite, not even close – but we are closer than before. See pictures for comparison:


As a stitcher, it is not a matter of how fast I get something finished except that if I get something completed faster, I can work on yet another new design. But I also cherish the process so that I can associate a particular piece of stitchery with different memories from different stages of my life. Okay, I think I am romanticizing this a little bit. ;)

Have a beary wonderful Tuesday, everyone!

  1. “But I also cherish the process so that I can associate a particular piece of stitchery with different memories from different stages of my life”.

    I love this. Hadn’t thought of the process of crafting in that way before. Please be as romantic as you like!

  2. I totally understand that! I feel that way when I’m hand stitching down binding on a quilt — a good time to reflect on what has gone on during the time I’ve been making the quilt.
    Love the beary stitchery!! But then teddy bears are a huge favourite here!

  3. I so agree! For me, when I’m stitching something for a particular person I try to think abouth him/her and how they will use the piece. I pray often throughout the process for that person, for their health and happiness. Blessings, marlene

  4. Oh! I’m the same way. I like to hurry up and finish so I can start something new… but I also associate different pieces with different memories. I usually have at least 2 or 3 projects going at once, though.

  5. It’s coming along nicely!

    I just finished a little project and was trying to decide between another little one or a big one. I started the big one — so I may be at it a while! I have a few Paula Vaughn ones that my sister did for me, but this is my first attempt at one myself.

  6. I often tend to rush to completion and enjoy it at the end, it’s true it’s really good to be able to enjoy the process. I know I need to master that a bit better; impatience often gets a hold of me, haha!
