Stitcher's Rituals

Some of us have a favorite chair that we sit in to stitch, others prefer to enjoy a steaming mug of tea while they stitch. Maybe you need to get comfortable and put on your pajamas before you pick up your needle or you simply must rearrange all the sofa pillows before you sit down. Sometimes the ritual is in the clean up when we’re done and everything must go in a certain place. What sort of stitching rituals do you have when you sit down to work on your projects?

I have just a few rituals I do before I stitch. I usually stitch in the evenings after working all day. I clean up dinner, then take my shower and get my jammies on. I arrange my pillows in my favorite stitching chair, so I can have good back support and sit up straight. I get my glass of ice water, or iced coffee ready nearby. I make sure the remote for the TV and the phone are next to me. Then I spread my stitching "things" around me on two tables. My scissors go in a certain place, so I always know where they are.

I love how everyone sounds so similar and yet we're each unique!
