  "Since I collect swans, I decided that my design should reflect that. I charted the design with the aid of the "EasyCross Deluxe" program. The only extra element that I used besides DMC floss was a bit of gold blending filament."

Design by: Viola Swann

Location: Surrey, British Columbia, Canada

Occupation: office assistant


When/How did you first start cross stitching?

I have been stitching in one form or another for over 30 years. I started doing charted cross stitch from kits, but didn't like trying to decide what the colors were.....I started buying my own charts about 15 years ago, and now have an extensive collection of charts and magazines.

What do you enjoy most about cross stitching?

Stitching is like breathing, I have to do both. I love to watch the progress of the piece that I am stitching, from some unrecognizable specks of stitches to a beautiful work of art. I would say it's a wonderful form of relaxation.

What are your favorite Cross Stitch Subjects?

Dragons, castles, samplers, medieval themes. I also have quite a collection of Christmas ornaments.

What is your Favorite TW Design(s)?

This is a very difficult question, there are so many that I want to complete. My favourite completed design is "The Castle Sampler". My to-do-list is quite extensive...must complete English Garden Sampler. Then I think it will be either Camelot or the Fantasy Triptych. I can hardly wait to see the new designs...the ones that we haven't got yet in this part of Canada......

Other Comments from the Designer:

I have found Teresa's designs to be the most challenging, and rewarding of any of the stitching I have done. When I look at the ones I have already completed, I am always amazed at how lovely they many have said before, the chart photos don't do the finished product any justice. Keep them coming, Teresa, we all love a good challenge!!!
