  1. I so enjoy your video`s. Barbara Ana Design `Love Never Fails` interested me. I now have purchased her pattern. Now to kit up. I have listened to you talking of Stash Maynia and wondered about this. Lovely choice of patterns to stitch. :) With help from a friend I`m now knitting soxs with 5 needles and nearly finished the 2nd pair. Happy Stitching.

    1. Thank you Clare! Stitch Maynia started a few years ago - it's a time to start all those projects you've been wanting to start. Some people start something everyday for 15 days or the whole month. I decided to start something every other day for 2 weeks. Here is a link to the facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/712411758884598/

  3. 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. How do the colors compare? Do you have problems with breakage? Thank you for taking the time to add the notes about your WIPs.

    1. Hi Chris! Thank you for your kind comment. I love working with silks and they are surprisingly strong. I love working with them, so if a pattern calls for them I will generally use them. I didn't use them on Hannah Coates because I didn't have a lot of the called for colors. There is a sheen that you get with silks that you don't get with cotton. Anyway, can you tell I love silks? :)

  4. 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!

  5. Hi Sherri, I use Bohin size 28 needles. The magnifiers I use are magni-clips. You can find them at Amazon and other stores (I got mine at Stitch and Frame). Thanks!

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