design is done in Mardi Gras colors as I live in the city where it
originated. (I know, everyone thinks it started in New Orleans, but
it actually did start in Mobile, Alabama). I plan to work this in
other colors for other holidays/seasons. This design is stitched using
splendor silks on 30 count platinum murano. This was a challenge and
I really enjoyed it! I do have a renewed respect for Teresa's fabulous

When/How did you
first start cross stitching?
first started cross stitching around 1989. My daughter had a piece her
grandmother had given her to stitch and I thought it looked interesting.
I was a fan of Alabama college football, so I looked for and found a chart
of their logo and started stitching. This piece still hangs in my computer
room, complete with wrinkles and x's crossed every which way. I love it
because it was the start of the most wonderful hobby! My daughter did
no other stitching but that one piece, but she proudly displays many of
my completed pieces in her home.
What do you enjoy
most about cross stitching?
most enjoy the ability to relax and lose myself in the stitching process.
For me it is a great stress buster. (except for when the frogs visit...)
What are your favorite
Cross Stitch Subjects?
are varied, but you will find more fantasy related charts in my stash
than any other type.
What is your Favorite
my, what a difficult question to answer. They are all lovely and I have
several which stand out in my mind. I used to say "Companions" was my
favorite. I recently finished Celestial Dragon and it is now a toss-up
between these two. Storyteller, Guardian, the Carousel and the seasonal
carousel horses... Ok, you can probably insert almost any TW design here
and it would be one of my favorites.
This Design is
My daughter, Jennifer.
from the Designer:
I would like to
dedicate this design to my daughter Jennifer. She is the person responsible
for starting me on this wonderful cross stitch journey and a most beautiful
person both inside and out!
