  1. YAY! I'm so glad you finally have some beautifully framed pieces! I love every one of them. I am thinking about getting the All Creatures Great and Small. I just love how yours turned out! I really do think there is a difference in 40 ct PTP linen and 40 ct Lakeside. PTP is very very tight and I can totally see why you switched linens. You'll be caught up to where you left off on your other one(s) in no time at all! I'm always so excited to see that you've done a video! I always enjoy seeing you! ♥

  2. I am so happy to see that you got Smith Sampler too. I need to finish my All Creatures Great and Small too. Your stitching is beautiful Nicole.

  3. The Smith Sampler...all those silk threads! It will be beautiful; wish I could squeeze it into my stash. Hope you enjoy every stitch.

    1. Thank you! I don't use either. I stitch in hand.

  5. I love your stitching! Can you share what size needle and brand you use when stitching on 40 count? If you don't mind, what brand of magnifying glasses you use? I just love watching your videos!

    1. Hi Koi,

      I use Bohin size 28 needles. I got my magnifying glasses at drug store near my house. I believe they are foster grants, but any glasses will work. I use 3.25 magnification. Thanks for the comment!
