1. Tell us about yourself.
My name is Laura. I work in construction. I have just finished a college course I did through work in construction management.
2. Where did you learn to cross stitch?
I learned years ago. My mum used to do it and I picked it up from her. Over the years I taught myself.
4. What is your proudest project?
My giant tunisian crochet. It was my first attempt at this type of crochet and I decided to do a very large project.
5. What has been your biggest disaster?
I seem to always make a mistake on large cross stitch projects. I tend to just work around them. The larger a project the more likely I am to make a mistake. No one seems to notice it but I always see it.
6. What project would you like to work on?
I would like to attempt socks and to try Donna's double sided blanket.

8. Do you have any advice for other Cross Stitchers?
If starting cross stitch for the first time start with a larger aida size. It's also easier to mark off where you are in a project as you go.
