Featured Stitcher Lisa P

Let’s get into the stitching questions and have some fun getting to know Lisa, her projects, and her crafty stash…

What’s your favorite type of cross stitch project to work on?

I like like working on all types of designs.

Do you have a favorite designer?

I don’t just have one. I like Joan Elliot, Jane Greenoff , Nia cross stitch.

How big is your stitching stash?

I couldn’t give a total size but it is rather large it fills an old airing cupboard , and some storage boxes .

How long have you been stitching? How did you learn?

I have been stitching since I was 7 years old . My mum taught me as I was in and out of hospital as a child due to my disability.

Do you watch television or listen to music (or podcasts) when you stitch; what’s your favorite way to fill the sound void?

I listen to the tv while I stitch.

Slightly related, but non-stitchy question: What are you currently reading and/or binge watching?

I like to watch Holby City, Casualty, and A Place to Call Home



Other than your current project and favorite needle, what is one thing you must have while stitching?

A nice hot cup of tea and my pet cat Jasper.

Do you have any “in real life friends” to share your stitching with in person, or maybe a local get together with a local stitch group? Tell us about so we can be jealous!

I have a friend who I speak to regularly on face time while we both stitch.

What stitched project finish are you most proud of?

I have stitched a couple later . One was of a couple who got married last year and another one of a brother and sister (as a remembrance gift).
