SBQ - Question of the Week

I have absolutely no difficulty answering this week's SBQ:

Would you ever stitch one of your BAPs a second time? (This does not
include starting over because of mistakes, bad fabric, etc., rather
stitching something from the first stitch for a second time.)

Absolutely NOT! One of the main reasons I enjoy cross stitching is because I like to see the images reveal themselves as I go. I love the mystery of it - beginning with a chart of symbols, and converting it to a beautiful design - and if the mystery has already been revealed, I have no interest in doing it again. As a matter of fact, I have a BAP that I just can't wait to finish, as the main part of the design is complete and I already know what it looks like. I'm almost bored with it. I have to make myself pick it up and work on it.

I understand your view. I am a bit different person. I am math - challenged. That is why I like needlepoint. The math has been already done for me, and I can just put the yarn in the eye of the needle and go for it.
