As I spend a lot of time with stitching, it´s time to think seriously WHY do I love to stitch, and WHY did I become addicted to cross stitch???
First it´s absolutely hard for me to put my thoughts into English words, but I´ll try.
It´s really not for only passing the time. I´m always absolutely busy in keeping care of my business, my wonderful family, our house, our garden and I always try to use some time for sports to not become too much out of the shape :-).
So sometimes it´s really hard for me to find some stitching time, but as always, everything you want to do, you will find time to do.
But what´s the pleasure to put one x after the other into a piece of linen???
For me it´s not only the reason to be creative. I have a profession where I have to be creative the whole day.
I think I love to stitch especially for my love of tradition and for my love to get to know more about the past.
I absolutely have a modern life, but I love tradition embroidery. In the background of this embroidery there is the whole life of women of the past ages. Since ages and ages there sat women - no matter if there were wars or disasters - and they found diversions and rest in their stitching.
And the embroidery they created are the echo of ideas about which only a later time become clarity. And I´m feeling a little tied together with this women.
Now I really would love to get to know, what´s your reason to love to stitch????!!!!!!
