Do you feel cross stitching requires patience?
Ummm...no. Not patience as such. If it did, I certainly wouldn't be doing it! I have no patience whatsoever. Zip. Nada. I always want everything yesterday, in fact in the early days of my marriage it used to drive DH nuts, but he's grown accustomed to it by now. People comment all the time, "you must have a lot of patience" or tell me they wouldn't have the patience for it. But when I stitch, I tend to be very 'in the moment' with it. I'm not thinking how much more I have to do, or how long it will take, I just take it as it comes. Also, it gives me something to do with my hands - I cannot bear to sit and do nothing in front of the TV or whatever. However... whilst all this is true for most of the project, it's a whole different ball game when the end hoves into sight. Then my chronic impatience kicks in and I work on it like a demon until it's done because I can't wait to see it finished and I can't wait to start the next one!
