  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.


  6. An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a coworker who has been conducting a little homework on this. And he actually bought me lunch due to the fact that I found it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to discuss this topic here on your internet site. gmail sign in
