Interviewed by Kathy -

Kathy was interviewed recently on her blog and she asked for people to volunteer to be interviewed by her. I have to reply to her 5 questions and then ask if anyone would be willing to be interviewed by me. If you would like to be interviewed then just leave a note in the comment section and I get to ask you 5 questions. Nothing too personal I promise.

Here are the questions that Kathy asked of me.

1. What is your favorite cross stitch piece and why?

Oh goodness that is hard. I am not sure I have a favourite, I really like most of the things I have stitched.

2. What was your very first cross stitch piece and where is it now?

My first ever was a little kit I bought whilst on holiday in Sussex. It was a Teddy Bear holding a goldfish bowl and as my daughter did lovely cross stitch I was going to ask her to stitch it for me so that I could give it to my (then future) dil's niece for her first birthday. On a wet night with my book finished I decided to have a go myself and came home from the holiday with it complete. I have no idea where it is now. The next piece I did was the DMC Mother and Baby and I still have that on my wall.

3. When did you learn to stitch and who taught you?

LOL self taught - see above.

4. Where is your favorite place to stitch and why?

Another hard one. If I am at home then its in my den as the light is so much better there than anywhere else in the house. Anywhere in the world and it would be Bella Vista where we stayed when we were on holiday in Chang Mai, Thailand. It was shaded by the trees but lovely and warm and so so peaceful, I got more stitching done that holiday than any other I think.

5. I can tell by your email address that you love being a grandmother - please describe why it is such a special relationship for you?

In short I can't. I just adore my little grandson more than I ever thought was possible. He is a lovely, well behaved and well mannered little boy of 6 years old and he wraps my heart up in knots. I think you have to be a Granny to understand lol.

Well Kathy I hope I have done well in my interview, your questions made me think and maybe I have not been able to reply very well to some of them but I have done my best.

I do hope someone will now ask me to interview them as it was good fun.

may your frogs stay in their ponds.
