I just noticed something about me and my stitching. I simply *have* to have the needle/thread on top of the fabric when I end a session of stitching.
See! Always with the strings streaking across the piece. The only time I don't have them is when I've finished a thread and it's so far passed my bedtime that I don't bother to get another started.
Now, I hear ya-- what's another quirk in my basket of insanity really going to cost me? Welllllllll, the corollary to Always Having the Needle on Top is Always Wanting to See Just One More Stitch. Sigh. See? I'm doomed.
I'd ask again why I wasn't born independently wealthy so I could stitch all day, but then I start to worry that if I was filthy rich, I'd think stitching was something I had "people" for. Vicious frickin circle.
Ultimately, the question of the day is: Do you have needle parking compulsions?
Happy stitching to all -- no matter where your needle ends up.
P.S. Siobahn--- I promise not to shuffle out of any shrubs and gnaw on The Fluffinator's ankles. lol
Jo -- LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the "hole in road" lol
