When/How did you first start cross stitching?

To be honest, I don't even remember how long ago I started cross-stitching. I remember when I was young (maybe 10?) my grandparents gave me a box of various needlework projects, and I remember working stamped cross-stitch, and my mothe r correcting me on the direction of the top stitch (apparently they weren't all going the same direction!). Since then, I've dabbled in various needleworking styles but tend toward the counted-thread variety (mostly cross-stitch and blackwork)

What do you enjoy most about cross stitching?

I think what I like most is the act of creating something of beauty, watching it take shape in my hands. That, and stitching is a very relaxing diversion for me. I've had people ask "how can you do such painstaking work without going insane? ". I just tell them that stitching is what keeps me from going insane!

What are your favorite Cross Stitch Subjects?

A variety of things, usually Celtic, fantasy, or medieval. (Needless to say, I have either the kit, leaflet, or magazine for every dragon TW has published :)

What is your Favorite TW Design(s)?

Impossible to choose just one! I've developed grand (if yet unstitched) plans for groups of her designs. The Castle Sampler pairs well with the Lady of Shalott and the Enchanter (I've completed two of the three). The Guardian and the Storyteller seem to pair well, since they both have dragons and knotwork borders, though I haven't stitched either one yet. My favorite of the ones I've completed (so far) is the Castle, which I did on light blue evenweave, and used blending filaments t o give the dragon some life.

Other Comments from the Designer:

The only problem I've ever found with TW's wonderful designs is that she's designing them faster than I can stitch!
