  1. Hi Nicole, I really enjoy your podcast! I love everything you have in your rotation. This will be a beautiful sampler wall and it won't take you long at all. I would consider myself a slow stitcher. Any tips on how to stitch faster:)

    1. Thanks Angie! I stitch in hand and that definitely helps me stitch faster. I taught myself when I was 13, so I have never used a hoop or q-snaps.

    2. I would love to see you stitch sometime. Maybe just a short clip:)
      I started out with a hoop. I have tried in hand but feel my stitches are just not as neat. Maybe I need to practice more.

  2. YAY! Another video! I haven't watched yet...saving it for later!!! ♥ Now my husband knows who you are because he watched a bit of your last one!

  3. Hey Cathy! He should know me - I'm your third sister! LOL! :)

  4. OMGOSH! I love everything you are doing for your Maynia! I'm not doing Maynia...just watching everyone else. I'm determined to finish the Garden Series by Blackbird. Just finishing up only 5 more. Good grief it's taking a long time and I'm getting a little weary but I can't start anything new until it's on it's way for framing. I just had to laugh that you're sitting in your jammie bottoms! A girl after my own heart! Have a lovely weekend! ♥

  5. Thank you for another video. It's so inspiring to see your Stitch Maynia posts! I don't know much about silks and would love to learn more about why you choose them or don't.
