  1. Love the finishes and to see what you are up to these days. We did have a great time at the retreat and missed you. Cari and Cathy did one track and I did the one with Blackbird, Plum Street and Jeanette Douglas. Next time-start saving

  3. Hi
    I have a 14x14 cross stitch sampler that I am looking for someone to cross stitch for me (Christmas present for my mom) Do you know of any site where I could post this? Thanks Pat morgan

    1. Yes, I would go on Facebook and search Stitch Maynia. They have a ton of people who could possibly do this for you. Good luck!

  6. Nicole,
    I am so glad to see you back to your stitching! You were such an inspiration for me when I read your blog! Love your finishes! I also stated ACGS and it was so much fun finishing each motif! It went fast and kept my interest. Can't wait to see yours framed. I want to finish SP Halloween sampler. I have two with threads so if you know someone who needs chart and ltd. edition threads, please have them contact me or you can send me their email address. It is a great one! Love your knitting too! Thanks for sharing your work!

  7. Happy belated birthday. I'm getting caught up on all your videos. So many gorgeous samplers that need to be gracing your walls. I have started using 1 strand over 2 for all my new stitch projects, even as low as count 28. I love the look. The stitches lay so nice and are perfectly defined. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with lovers of this needle work.

  9. 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. I know Anchor threads were charted by the designer and sometimes Shakespeare's Peddler recommends them also - so just wondering how they compared to DMC? I have those charts in my stash but have not purchased threads yet so interested in your experience. Thanks selda

    1. Thank you Selda! I don't really notice too much of a difference in quality between Anchor and DMC. I just wanted the colors to look as close as possible to the finished picture.
