Stitching Blog Hop - Society Assumes

Stitching the Night Away Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop

Do you experience this same assumption from society in general that just because you’re being crafty you’re also driven by some unseen force to be in constant 1950s housewife mode? 

Well I can say that no one assumes that I can do anything around the house once they see me stitching but I do get a lot of odd looks. Young lady sitting stitching in public. It really amazes me how many people come up to you and ask you how hard that is to do. They always seem shocked or I get the comment I have never been brave enough to try that. I've never heard any assumptions out loud but I do get a lot of interest.

 and then…. Who actually does the cooking and the cleaning in the household?

Well the cooking depends on who is home at the right time to start cooking. I am not the best cook, and more often than not Phill will be cooking dinner. Cleaning... tends to fall to me but it really isn't that clean. I'm not a cleaner by any stretch of the imagination.

I’d also really like to hear some words from the men in the crowd who stitch on this topic. What sort of societal reactions do you get and what ridiculously wrong assumptions do people make towards you when they see you working on needlework?

Well I can't answer this one!

  1. I tend to get assumptions that I'm a "tree hugger" or "hippy" because I crochet and stitch. The comment I get the most is "I don't have the patience to do that..." As for the men, I love it when I come across one that can crochet or stitch. (Hell, being crafty with anything!) LOL My DH is crafty. He can stitch with me too. Granted he's not allotted any time these days to sit with me but he does have an owl waiting for his attention to return. (Maybe this winter if we get snowed in again LOL)


Thank you for your comments I love to hear from you.
