Stitching Blogger's Question of the Week
What do you do when you have some sort of obligation stitching to do, but don’t want to do it?
When I joined a Round Robin (RR) early this year, I sensed kind of obligation stitching after receiving the 1st piece of RR to stitch. There were reasons to such feeling since it was my 1st time joining a RR. I didn't really know what to expect and I am kind of stitcher who stitches small patterns on small pieces of fabrics. When I first got to stitch on a bigger/lengthy fabby, I said to myself "OMG! i never stitch on such a lenghty fabric" (other members wanted to make a bellpull/banner out of RR). I started to worry but I was OK then, since my friend provided an easy to stitch pattern. When another friend's RR piece came to me, it was another lenghty fabby. I was OK with the fabric size but it was the pattern she provided that worries me. Frankily speaking, the pattern is so lovely, it just that I never stitch such a big pattern *LOL*
With datelines coming ahead, made me worry not to finish stitching on time. What I did was, I spent most of my stitching time with these RR pieces, eventhough my feeling at that very moment was close to 'I don't want to do it'. I guess I simply wanted to finish it quickly and didn't want to bother with it anymore. I even cut my browsing/blogging hours to ensure I had enough time to finish stitching. My WIPs were totally been ignored *LOL* The only thing that stopped me from stitching was when the required floss was misplaced. I seldom have the opporturnity to go stash shopping, missing floss means I have to wait for the right time to go to the LNS. Grrrr !
Anyway, I managed to deal with these kind of obligation stitching. It is not as bad as what I think initially.
