I think it is that "to stitch" is the action when sewing something and "to stroke" is the action when painting something. Sorry am illiterate scientist and not very good at explaining words :oops:

I would have thought it was the other way around-you stroke in order to paint.Both sewing and stroking also result in something being made/created.That's my take on it! :lol:
