Who taught you to stitch, and were there any special circumstances or memories surrounding this? My mom taught me embroidery when I was small. It was one of the things I did on rainy days when we were at the beach for the summer (paint our nails was another, and lots of card playing). I must have been about 6 or so. I did crewel which is why I have no French knot fear. As I got older, she and I had a harder time learning from each other. I never knew about cross stitch until college when bestpal was making things for the girls she babysat. When she got engaged (so young!), I took it up to make something for her wedding.
What’s your favorite thing to stitch? (A project, a kind of stitching, etc.) I like stitching all sorts of things. As in all parts of my life, I have eclectic tastes.
Why do you stitch? Relaxation. A sense of accomplishment.
When is your special stitching time? The only time I don't stitch is when I am at work or if I am in the car after dark.
Where is your special stitching place? I don't know how special it is. (
