The Stitching Bloggers’ Question of the week is:
What is your favorite past time while stitching? Do you just enjoy
silence, listen to music/audiobooks or do you “watch” TV/movies? Do
you have specific favorites you listen to/watch while stitching?
I like gaming while stitching, but I’m finding that it doesn’t work so well in one-on-one games. When we played with other people, I got a lot more stitching done, because I could do that while other players were “on stage,” so to speak. I love listening to those interactions, but I get fidgety without something to keep my hands busy.
One-on-one games are too intense, usually, to get any stitching done. I prefer to maintain eye contact with Sam, which just doesn’t work while doing counted-thread work. If I ever learn to knit or crochet, I’m told it’s much easier to do those while looking elsewhere.
I used to stitch while “watching TV,” too, but haven’t done it in some time. We don’t have cable, since we’re not big TV people, but maybe I’ll pop in a DVD of something I’ve seen before.
I’d really prefer having a gaming group again, though. Hope, Waya, and J-Chan, when are y’all coming for a stitch-n-game weekend?
