Stitching Blogger's Questions: How many hours do you stitch each week?

On average, how many hours a week (7 days) do you think that you spend cross stitching?

The honest answer to that is "not enough".

I used to stitch at least 2-3 hours a day - sometimes more. But since moving to Cornwall, real life and a full time job has severely curtailed my stitching time - so in reality - unless I grab the odd stitch at lunchtimes, or travelling (which I don't do very often) I only really get real stitching time at the weekends. So I guess I probably stitch less than 5 hours a week at the moment - so 20 hours down to 5 - no wonder my UFO's aren't disappearing.

Maybe in the long summer evenings I'll find more time to stitch - it should soon start being light enough and warm enough to sit out in the garden in the evening for an hour or two. Perhaps I'll get more stitching done then.

I think that's what I enjoyed about last weekend so much - dedicated guilt-free stitching time.

Hi Vash
you sound a lot like me, I wish I had more stitching time too. I currently stitch around 7 hours per week. Last weekend was great, stitching the whole weekend...bliss.
