Why Do I stitch?

And why do I dance leads me into “why do I stitch?”

I stitch because:

  • I like to create beauty from small bits of “stuff.”
  • I like the feel and texture of the supplies.
  • My husband, the EO, would be REALLY annoyed if I just brought supplies home to pet them like cats and never used them.
  • I love the variety of things one small piece of thread can turn into.
  • Egotistically, maybe, I love the fact that I can say, “I made that” when I’m finished. Note:  sometimes I say, “I can’t believe I made that. It’s so beautiful!”
  • Like dancing, I can’t not stitch and still be me.

  1. Thankyou for the really sweet comment on my blog 🙂

    Ah, YOU are ‘Stitching with a Shimmy’. I’m always seeing that name in Blog lists. Makes me think of tafetta and beetlewings and dragonflies.

    • Welcome Megan! Yup, this is me. 🙂
      I love taffeta and beetlewings and dragonflies, so it’s appropriate. 🙂 When I put those words together I tend to think of glass beads and sequins, but that would be the bellydancer in me coming out. Hmmm. I wonder if the sound of taffeta would be annoying coming from a bellydance costume…
