Giveaway (NOW CLOSED)
I am offering a giveaway in this video in celebration of reaching 2500 subscribers. Be sure to watch the video for all the details about what I’m giving away. Here are the rules:
  • Be a subscriber to my YouTube channel.
  • Leave a comment on the video telling me your favorite new release from the Nashville market (or, if you’re a stamper, your favorite new release from Creativation in January).
  • Please don’t mention the word “giveaway” in your comment. If you do, I will delete your comment. I want the winner to be someone actually interested in crafting, not just some random person trolling YouTube looking for giveaways.
Flosstube Bonus

Next weekend I hope to have a bonus Flosstube video. Several people have commented and/or messaged me on Instagram asking for a video on how I create my floss tags. I’ve recorded a video showing how I make them using punches, but I want to try making some using my electronic die cutting machine, too. Once I have everything done, I'll post the video on my channel.

February 2019 Stitching Recap

I showed the status of my big ort jar in my Flosstube #3 video, but I thought I would share the still photo of my smaller jar here as well. These are my February orts before I emptied them into my bigger annual jar.

February 2019 Orts

The bright colors near the bottom of the jar were from the Halloween Cat design from Satsuma Street. I finished it on February 12.

Design: Halloween Cat
Designer: Satsuma Street
Fabric: 32 count Jazlyn in Twilight from Fabrics by Stephanie
Fibers: Recommended DMC
Started: 24 February 2018
Completed: 12 February 2019

Above those orts, you’ll see lots and lots of black. Part of that was from the Noir Belle Soie silk I used on the Quaker d’ Halloween design from Jardin Privé. I started this piece on Feb. 12 and finished it on Feb. 23.

Design: Quaker d'Halloween
Designer: Jardin Privé
Fabric: 32 count Jobelan in Warm Sugar from Fabrics by Stephanie
Fibers: Belle Soie silks

The rest of the black was from Be Inkspired by Stitchrovia. This was one of my birthday new starts on Feb. 17.

Design: Be Inkspired
Designer: Stitchrovia
Fabric: 32 count Limestone Lugana (Wichelt)

After I emptied my small monthly jar into the larger jar, this is what my 2019 year-to-date orts look like.

Until next time …
