How did you get started stitching? Was there a person who inspired you?
Yes, I laughed when I came across this question.
If you guessed that I started stitching thanks to the influence of Dani - you would be correct.
She gifted me with a wonderful framed piece (a cat which is the only piece hanging in the apartment) then encouraged me to try. A few weeks later I had a finished Teresa Wentzler Stretch the magic dragon and away I went.
I'm pretty sure she regrets it now ;)
