Which kind of bead-weaving stitches describes your personality?
I was reading a blog that was written by Jean Campbell who is an editor of beaadingdaily.com asked the question "Which stitch are you?" referring to bead weaving stitches such as peyote, square, herringbone, brick and right angle weave. She has them listed with the personality traits of the person such as if you're a right angle weave person you would be cerebral.
I read the comments that people made about their favorite stitch and and why they felt that it described their personality. I looked all five of the most popular bead weaving stitches and came to the conclusion that I had the traits of three of those five stitches. I was a right angle weave, herringbone and peyote stitch.
I thought that I was all three of these stitches because those are my favorite stitches to work with. If you read the hub The Quest for Spirt of the Muse you would see my bead work incorporates most of theses stitches.
I thought that I was a right angle weave because I was cerebral and I liked flowing things and sometimes when I explain things it sounds like I'm babbling. I was the herringbone stitch because I need harmony and balance and that is what the herringbone stitch is about a nice harmony and balance. The peyote stitch is a stitch for inventive, artistic, risk taking people. This is the stitch where you can most express yourself.

These personaity traits by beadweaving sitch is from Jean Campbell's article What Stitch Are You?
You are: Right-Angle Weave
You are a very cerebral person, but have more than one flowing garment in your closet. Maps are laughable to you, as you always know your way. Unfortunately, people think you’re babbling when you try to explain things to them.
You are: Brick Stitch
Reliable and strong on the outside, you are fairly complicated on the inside. You happily let your guard down around friends, who can always entice you onto the dance floor to show off your righteous moves.
You are: Herringbone Stitch
Life for you is a series of ups and downs that eventually lead to a harmonious and ordered whole. You rely on a little help from your friends for grounding and support and you probably know a thing or two about walking a tightrope
You are: Square Stitch
You like things to be finalized and fairly buttoned up. You color inside the lines and probably have a big collection of Delicas. People like to be around you because you have wads of money hidden under your mattress.
You are: Peyote Stitch
You come across as put-together and easygoing, but the truth is you’re fairly lazy, often tread on thin ice, and like to play the horses. You don’t like to be confined to one way of doing things and would rather experiment, sometimes at the cost of showing off your inner workings.
