What's Your Best Strategy for Combating Stitching Boredom?

As a long term shop owner, Mary Agnes has seen it all and has strategies to cope with most of the problems of running a small business.  She does some model stitching and also stitches items for customers, so she runs into the problem of Stitching Boredom often.  Here is how she copes.

Personally, I make myself stitch every night after supper without fail.  This doesn't always work--sometimes I am so tired by my Real Life chores that I don't dare stitch.  Ripping out a night's work the next night means it isn't worth working when exhausted!  But it works for me.

What's your strategy to get yourself through the boredom of a project you've worked on too long?

  1. Sometimes I just decided to not stitch for a day, mostly I work on something else.

  2. I think about doing Pilates, then promptly take a nap. ;-)

    1. Hey! Naps work! LOL By the way, I saw your article, Erin, and have written about it on Blog for next week. Makes me sad. Here's hoping 2016 is a better year for us all.
