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."

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?
samplers, medieval themes. I also have quite a collection of Christmas
What is your Favorite
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......
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 are....as 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!!!
