Episode 18

Hey Everyone!  It's been an exciting couple of weeks here in SC.  First, we had Hurricane Matthew (only minor damage and branches down at our house, thankfully) and then it was the Stitching at the Beach Retreat in Myrtle Beach. 

  • Jenny Bean's Halloween Sampler by Shakespeare's Peddler (I forgot to share this in my video - I will show it next time).  
40 ct. Vintage Pearled Barley, Limited Edition GAST (1 over 2)
  • All Creatures Great and Small by Barbara Ana Designs using 40 ct. Vintage Country Mocha by Zweigart and Anchor threads (1 over 2). 
  • Hannah Coates 1848 by Hands Across the Sea Samplers using 40 ct. Fawn by Lakeside Linens and DMC threads (1 over 2). 
  • Goodness and Grace by Shepherd's Bush using 32 ct. linen and threads that came in the kit (1 over 2). 
  • Blueberry Waffle Socks by Sandy Turner using Hedgehog Fibres Sock "Teacup."
  • Two fat eighths of 40 ct. linen by Silkweaver and Chart w/threads and fabric by Hands on Design (sold at Down Sunshine Lane booth at the retreat). 
  • Various Charts and Magazines from the swap table at the retreat. 


  1. Your sampler is looking fabulous and so nearly finished. Just love the socks - gorgeous.

  2. Enjoy watching your videos. Do you know if the Jenny Bean Halloween Sampler pattern is still available in the shops? I would like to find it.

    1. Edwina, I believe it is. Just do a google search and it should come up! Good luck!

    2. Thanks, Nicole. I found it at Silver Needle. So happy

  3. I can't believe how fast you stitched All Creatures Great and Small. It is so lovely! I know it won't be long before you have that beautiful border done. Was your nose itching a few weeks ago? Cari and I discussed you several times while we were at the Retreat (I promise it was all nice things!). Hope all is well with you and so glad you survived the hurricane with little loss.

  4. I have been enjoying your video`s. I am waiting on postie to bring my `Nancy`s Sewing Accessories Chart`. So looking forward to stitching this. Happy Stitching.

  5. Beautiful finishes from some of my favorite designers! Congrats Nicole. In a previous video you mentioned your choice of Anchor threads for All Creatures Great and Small sampler instead of the DMC conversion.
