When/How did you
first start cross stitching?
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,

they weren't all going the same direction!). Since then, I've dabbled

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.

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