This week's question:
Do you use a stand when you stitch? If so, tell us about it and share pictures if you’ve got them. If not, would you like to try using a stand? Do you have any tips or tricks around using a stand versus not using a stand?I do not use a stand and I never have. I know most people have a favorite chair where they sit to stitch, but I dont stitch in a chair. Because our apartment is so small and my daughter keeps moving in and out, we dont have much furniture in the living room. My husband and I have gotten into the habit of using our bedroom as the living area. So, I only stitch while in bed. I have a breakfast tray that I set my scissors, floss, etc on. I have a metal board and easel that hold my chart, and a clip on magnifying lamp.

Maybe someday when we get a bigger place or less children coming back home all the time I'll get a nice big, comfy chair with a floor stand. For now, this is what fits my lifestyle.
