SBQ – September 2010

Is there anything that you do while you are stitching that is kind of weird or unusual? A quirky habit maybe? Or anything that you do that makes you think, Hey…I wonder if anyone else does this?

The strangest thing I have noticed with my stitching is not something that I do on purpose. I first noticed this behavior when I was model stitching. When I make a mistake on an important piece (i.e. a model), I get completely flushed. My face goes red and I get hot. Seriously. I’m neurotic. And I would be very surprised if anyone else has this kind of physical reaction to making a mistake and having to frog.

Other than that, I have a tendency to stick out my tongue a bit when I am really focusing on something. That goes for anything that I’m working on, not just stitching. I don’t do this a lot when I’m stitching, I don’t think, unless I’m weaving a complex Hardanger filling.

    I get frustrated when I make a mistake… Quite often, I’ll end up setting the piece aside and not work on it for awhile. Can’t say I get red in the face though.

    My son sticks his tongue out when he concentrates too. He’s been doing it since he was just teeny tiny! It’s the cutest thing to see. I’m sure your hubby gets a kick out of seeing you do it. 😉

    My daughter does this whenever she concentrates.
