The Hobby of Cross Stitching Expressed as a Pie Chart

I know its totally geeky and a little silly, but I believe this pie chart is reasonably accurate to a certain degree. Of course all figures and numbers are completely non-scientific and your results may vary.


Pin it, share it, and enjoy 🙂

Happy Stitching!

    You are forgetting the percentage of time reading books/magazines about stitching, researching new patterns, and cataloging your unfinished projects!!! That’s the best part of stitching is procrastinating…

  4. Hi – I love this! it is so true! I just had to share it on my blog! Thanks for the great graphic! Happy stitching!

  5. Haha! This is too true! If you took the shopping figure down to 65% and added in Planning Next Project at 10%…you’d have my stitching life covered, lol!

    • oh – planning – absolutely! I do that too 🙂 I think I may need to revise this graph with all these ideas.

    I spend a lot of time fondling my stash and doing floss tosses and planning my next project….with no real intention of actually stitching it any time soon. LOL

  7. And now I want to cross stitch this chart 🙂


  8. I kit up my pattern, floss and material and think to myself I can stitch that up in 20 mins at the most. I don’t know what I am thinking and then when I do start another project and I have to go looking for floss in another bag. I guess the trick of the trade is to finish one project at another time.. LOL LOL

  9. Stitchers could easily be hoarders, LOL! I never have enough floss or fabric even though I definitely have enough floss and fabric. 😀
