SBQ is back

Just read on Daffycat's blog that the SBQ is being revived By Lee at  the Lake Stitcher

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.

I have to say I think I am a 'process' stitcher I just love stitching, just for the sake of stitching, and I am not that concerned about having a finish, (but it is nice to see the end product occasionally!) well look at all my WIP's, I like variety hence the difference in each type of style of WIP I do. 
I am the same in my life as well, I am not the sort who is a clean freak, I do clean obviously, but as a friend once said to me, A house is not a home if you cannot write 'I Love you ' in the dust. And I love that saying LOL And I get mad urges to have a major spring cleans occasionally!
People who have visited my house will tell you I have a tendacy for clutter, I like my bits and bobs, but I am getting better I have been having a major clearout, I feel a car boot sale coming on!

What a great question, I think I'm a project stitcher, I like seeing the finished item and knowing I've achieved something.

I clutter a LOT! It will pile up here and there until I get seriously fed up with myself and clear it all away!

I think i must be a project stitcher, although i can have a couple of bigger projects on the go, but i do like to have some smalls each month too.

Process stitcher - as the drawerful of unfinished items will attest to! LOL :0)
