My lovely Nancy. My twin in all things except DNA. Partner in criminal activities which shall not be shared here.....erhm...right, moving on.......
Nancy and I have been leading each other astray for quite some time now and one would think this was a kind of "Wicked Attraction" type thing, but it's not. 100% support in all things is the foundation for our friendship....good or naughty choices....uhhhhh, yesss, I'm going there again aren't I? My personal opinion about Nancy's character is above reproach and now I'm wondering if this is more of a letter of reference or a bloggity blog? Once you get to know her, you too will love her because it is THAT easy.
So here is my Nancy interview, please enjoy!
1) Please, introduce yourself and be as windy as you like.
This will be a gentle breeze. My name is Nancy, though if you are trying to Google me, you will find me much easier at Katjakay, which is my Deviant Art nom de plume. I live in the southern interior of British Columbia, Canada, where I live on an orchard but don’t work there. I am a baker at Safeway, though I worked for years in a photo lab, which is why I’m such an avid photographer. I am also obsessed with waterfalls, figure skating (watching, not doing) and the Olympics.
2) When did you first pick up a needle and what was your very first cross stitch project?
I started stitching about 9 years ago, I had been to the stitching section of Micheal's with a friend of a friend who stitched and saw Dimensions Magnificent Wizard and really wanted to make it. I started with a learn to cross stitch kit and went from there. I did get to make the Wizard several years later, still one of my favorites.
3) How many Teresa Wentzler patterns have you stitched?
Stroke ofwill be my second TW, I have previously done Tempest in a Teacup.
4) What made you decide to take on the TW project you are or will be stitching?
|Nancy's "Cindy" aka Stroke of Midnight|
I love fantasy art, so TW has always called to me. I bought the Fantasy Collection book with a gift card and when looking through it - knew I’d have to do Stroke of. My mother adores all things Cinderella, so this will be her Christmas present.
5) For you, what has been the most brutal stitching project you have ever stitched and why?
My most annoying piece is “Music is What Feeling Sound Like” which I designed myself, I wasn't very good at it. The pattern drove me nuts. My deep respect to people who design patterns.
5) Any advice for those stitching or planning to stitch any of these patterns?
My best advice would be patience, even small TW ones use a lot of colour and fractional stitches. But they all have a rhythm and once you find that, you are golden.
And there you have it! Until tomorrow and happy stitching!
