Question of the week for my Icelandic stitching group, Allt í kross, was about stitching corners/craft rooms. Do you have a specific place where you sit and stitch? Do you sit by a table or do you sit on a couch/chair? How is your setup?
This is where I sit and stitch:
I sit on the long part of the couch with my feet up and the TV is right across from where I sit. My OTT-lite is there and my plastic box of DMC and some scissors.
Right next to the couch is my stash cabinet so I do not have to go very far if I need something or if I am going to pick out a new project 🙂 I am quite happy with my setup, but I would like a good stand. I have it all planned in my head, I just haven’t found the perfect one yet. I might have to have it custom made one of these days.
My focus piece these days is Stitcher’s Studio Stocking that was published in Cross Stitch & Country Crafts in the July/August 1989 issue. Since I have already stitched a stocking for both Sumarrós and Karítas, I need one for me 🙂 And this design is perfect for me. It has a lot of detail and the colors are beautiful. I doubt I will be able to finish it before Christmas this year, but there is always next year!
Have a great weekend everyone!
