Where do you stitch?

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:
Stitching corner
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.
Stitching corner and stash cabinet
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!

  1. Your stitching spot looks very cozy 🙂

    I have always admired the CS&CC stockings. Yours is looking great, and I’m looking forward to seeing your progress!

    Kósý saumahorn hjá þér. Flottur sokkurinn.

  3. Very neat area to stitch. The pinkeep is so pretty.

  4. A lovely bright stitching area you have. Looks like a lot of work in that stocking, looking forward to seeing your progress.

  5. That’s a lovely stitching nook you have there! And you gave me an idea for my OTT light. Just put it behind me on the couch. There’s a thought…
    Love the start of your stocking, it’s going to be gorgeous :o)

  6. Ooo! That looks comfy! I’ve been stitching at my desk lately. DBF is always in the living room playing his video games lately and doesn’t like to have the lights on!

    Nice progress on your stocking! I thought about stitching that one for my mom some day.

  7. Lovely stitching and I love your couch too! A lapseat could do for you to stitch while still sitting in your couch?
    Take care!
