If you could be an animal, which would you pick and why?
My personal favorite designers run the gamut: Merrily Beams, Stitches in Silk, Rae Iverson, Eileen Bennett, Cricket Collection, Shepherd’s Bush, Drawn Thread, Victoria Sampler, Heartstring Samplery, Ink Circles, Lizzie Kate, SamSarah… Obviously my first love is samplers, but I like new & shiny just as much as old reproductions. I love borders & symmetry & clean lines. And almost anything blue!
We do go to markets. My first market was in Charlotte in 1979! Before the advent of the internet, markets were our best avenue of finding new designs, new designers & great ideas. The Charlotte market was by far the best gathering of cross stitch designers & I think we have suffered from the demise of that market.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! When I’m not working or stitching, I’ll let you know! Actually, I am lucky to do what I love, so work isn’t WORK, & I’m also fortunate to work with great friends who do make it possible for me to be gone sometimes. Favorite outing: a girls’ day out at Sephora & Cheesecake Factory (not necessarily in that order). Molly & I try to swing a day off together now & then & that’s our fun day out. We hit King of Prussia mall & spend hours playing in Sephora (if you’ve never been, it’s like a makeup candy store!!). Now that I think about it, we haven’t done that in a long, long time….we’ll need to rectify that problem.
Do you like to read and if so what kinds of books do you enjoy reading?
