  1. So glad that you posted another video; I have been concerned that you were having life problems. You are one of my favorites so I am so glad to see this post. I love all of your projects; they are so pretty. I attend Heart's Desire stitching camp every spring at the Rock Springs Camp near Junction City, KS. We will be having Blackbird Designs there this year for our teachers. We have had Barb and Alma before and they are such a treat; so fun. Also, I was able to attend a class in November at The Attic Needlework shop and it was such a fun trip. This has been at the top of my bucket list since I retired in 2013. The class was taught by Sherry Jones who was excellent; I went with several of my friends so we had fun. Several of them took two classes but I only took one. The Attic is a wonderful shop to go to in Mesa, Az if you ever get the chance. The owner, Jean, is such a sweetheart and all of her gals are so nice and always ready to assist you. I don't knit but I always love to see what you are working on; always so pretty. Just so glad you posted; you are missed when we don't hear from you. Glad you had a good Thanksgiving with your mom and siblings so I hope your Christmas is just as joyful and blessed. Happy stitching.............

  3. Hello Nicole�� I will be receiving Gigi R Isabella Fox chart here soon but wanting to know if you happen to know what threads and colors it takes? I can't find anything on-line that shows them. Any help appreciated please! I'm knew to Flosstube and love all of your patterns you've done. Your my favorite since we stitch similar things. Maybe because my birthday is Nov. 3rd! Hmm.....Anyway, I hope you can help me! Thanks so much! Tam
