  1. OMG,I'm dying laughing! "Good luck getting that needle!" Right, right!! LOL Congratulations to the winners of your giveaway and that was very sweet of you to do! Happy Stitching!

  2. I don't care if they don't recommend surgery, I think I would HAVE to have it removed ๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. Love your first for you framed pieces! Your choices for frames are prefect!I had a great time at the gathering with all of you, and am looking forward to this weekend! Yvonne and I will be there first thing Friday. I am hoping that both you and I get more stitching completed than was done at the Guild Gathering. Enjoyed the video.Until Friday, Lorrie

  4. Love your framed pieces! What great finds in charts especially the Prairie Schooler patterns. I love the village too. I don't have it. I have stitched the other 2 samplers. I am stitching as I watch you Christmas Ark! Their charts are ageless.

  5. I stitched Renaissance Garden- now all I can think is that I have a pooping bunny on my wall!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ your framed pieces are beautiful.

  6. Another wonderful FT video! I absolutely adore your Beekeeper piece and the frame is so perfect for it–like it was made for that piece! I agree (Goode Housewife) about the bunny pooping–yikes! Either re-chart it or add some little bunny turds–ha ha! You got some great charts at the Giant Stitch In and I am happy they found a good home with you. See you on Saturday. XOX

  7. Love all of your FFOs…congratulations. I have that beekeeper limited edition kit…now that I've seen yours I want to get mine out!! You really got some great cheap haul!! Good for you. I was really excited when I saw had done another video!! ๐Ÿ’•

  8. Great update! I stitched a schoolhouse by TW…..have you seen that pattern? I don't know if you watch my videos and have seen it, but if not I'll tag you in my IG photo. I think you would like it ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Beautiful ffos. I cheated and stitched Harvest Home with one strand. Started with two, but just couldn't make myself do it. Have fun in Marietta!

  10. Sweet video… always, happy your pkg
    arrived. And your haul ….. well you really hit the jack pot… The Abecedarian chart its beautiful, I've seen it many times in the Designers home, he was my next door neighbor
    & I taught Tom how to stitch, his first
    Sampler was Almira Eaton, The Examplarery, he admired mine, & all the Reproduction Samplers I had, from that stitch to the graph table… Always so excited to share each one in progress..
    A man of talents, by day he ran the meat market in Slavic village here in Cleveland, Ohio.
    He'd be tickled to see how many are still enjoying his design.. His wife English background had influenced his
    choices, the English Cottage is a beauty…… ๐Ÿ’›

  11. I guess I missed it, but who is the designer for Harvest Home pinkeep – it's really pretty – I don't like to stitch with 2 strands either!

  12. I love everything in this video! Yes, I want all those charts you picked up at bargain prices. WTG. Those stockings, the Beekeeper piece, oh my, and the frames for each of the pieces is perfect. Can't wait to see your next video. You must have an awesome chart collection maybe rivaling Emily C or Abi Bellastitch? My friend I stitch with a couple of days a week has the Mirabilia chart for Lady of the Flag which I've been coveting for ages. She's going to lend it to me. Yea! My next one (yes, I'm a monogamous stitcher) will be Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. Wish I lived in GA just to stitch along with all you GA stitchers, you seem to have so much fun. I can't tell you how much I enjoy your videos.

  13. I just purchased labor for learning last month while in Pigeon Forge. Seeing it done makes me want to start it. Do you remember what fabric you used? Awesome job!

  14. Loved your video and your FFO's. Can you give me some information about your retreats you have gone to or are going. I am trying to learn about retreats so I can learn from other cross stitchers. I also noticed your collage ring. It looks like it is from Clemson University. I graduated from Clemson. Let me know if we have that in common. Thanks.

  15. Thanks for another great podcast! Can you give some more info about the Prim Stitcher's Society Retreat? When does it take place and where?

  16. HI Jessica – I enjoyed your video, as always. i admit that I'm a bit envious of all your stitchy gatherings. I live in a rural area in Canada, and theres nothing like that in my area. Perhaps thats why I enjoy

    floss tube so much. Im not the only person around wielding a needle! Your pieces are lovely. The frames are perfect for your work. When you held up the pansy heart in the magazine, , it made me smile. It's hanging in my house, and while it may be a bit "pastelly" for todays taste, i find it a pleasant spring piece. I stitched it roughly in 2002.
    Nice seeing you again, and i look forward to your next video.

  17. Hi Jessica! Thank you so much! I am so excited to win the beautiful pattern. My email is [email protected] If you can notify me I will send my address back to you. I was unable to find a way to private message you. Thanks again! Carolyn.๐Ÿ™‹

  18. The framed pieces are absolutely beautiful, you will enjoy looking at them hung on your walls. You got some great bargains on your patterns. Have fun stitching this weekend. Happy stitching.

  19. Kudos on remembering us GUYS who stitch! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Love the framing on your FFO's – and somehow, Labor for Learning found its way into my 123 shopping cart… Don't know HOW that happened? ๐Ÿค” lol
    Your work is beautiful . Really love The Beekeeper!!!! Gorgeous stitching and that frame is beautiful (they all are!) I think I may have that in my stash so I need to go diving into it later to see.
    Wow — you got some great deals at that retreat! BBD charts for 75 cents!? Awesome! Those TW ornaments are really nice, too. Have you done anything by her? I have The Castle Sampler all kitted up, but haven't started it yet. One of these days… Have a great week! Enjoying your videos. Kevin

  20. Perfect frames for perfect stitching!ย  Labor for Learning is in my stash.ย  Did you use the recommended fabric & threads?

  21. Hey girl! I laughed aloud when you said 69 and then you yelled at me. Beautiful framed pieces! Have a fabulous stitching weekend xo

  22. Hi Jessica. I just found your videos and I love them. I was wondering what are the zipped folders that you were showing in your 1st video that you were keeping your WIP's in? I would love to be able to find some of those so I could put my stuff in them too! Thanks in advance for any info that you can give me. I live in a small town in southeast Alabama and we only have a Hobby Lobby that is close. Not much to pick from…ugh!!

  23. You have really great stash, almost rivaling mine ๐Ÿ˜‚ you spent the weekend with some dear people! I know it had to be great fun!

  24. Love that Schoolhouse lesson…I'd have to stitch it first too. Getting out of order, whole lot of nope as Stitcherista would say. Your framed pieces are stunning. All the Pretty Flowers is such a sweet pattern. I've started The Beekeeper but just can't seem to get into it very much. Maybe I can be inspired by your finished one – it's gorgeous! You were too funny about grabbing those charts. ๐Ÿ™‚ blessings, marlene

  25. Watched all your videos! They are great! subscribed! You are such an enabler๐Ÿ˜‰ I'm jealous of your stitching guild, I wanna go, but I'm so far away, just north of Sarasota, that would be an obnoxious drive! Thanks for sharing๐Ÿ’œ

  26. I love all your stitching. I also stitched The Beekeeper. I have her in a muted black frame. I stitch bees and bee skeps like it's my job. I'm having 3 of them framed right now. If you ask to be my friend on FB you can see them or I'll be showing them on Stitch Maynia. Look forward to more videos.

  27. Beautiful stitching WIPS and framed pieces Jessica! I am a member of the Sampler Guild of Ga., but I live 2 hours away from Tiny Stitches ๐Ÿ˜ž I see you have met some of my Stitchy friends…Donna and Debbie (the 2 crazies ๐Ÿ˜Š) and sweet Caroline! There are more, but too many to name. What great bargains you have come across! I see your stash is growing…isn't it fun ๐Ÿ˜Š Your videos are very fun to watch and I hope we can meet some day. Happy Stitching!

  28. Sounds like you had a great time at the stitch-in! Great haul ๐Ÿ™‚ I now need to head to eBay and the like to see if I can find that Prairie Village II booklet, the log cabin with the loons looks just like the one my aunt and uncle live in so of course I need to stitch it! Stitchitis is a real disease! Happy stitching!

  29. Hi Jessica – I'm new to Floss Tube but have been stitching since 1978. I lived in Marietta for 30 years, but moved away in 2000. Not sure how long you've been in the Atlanta area, but there was a GORgeous shop in East Cobb called Abecedarius, now gone. I remember well Tiny Stitches – I am a quilter now, but wasn't back then, but I'd go to Tiny Stitches to choose backing fabrics for pillows and wall hangings, etc.. It was a lovely shop, and what fun to learn they now offer cross stitch as well. Your first two videos have been wonderful, and your enthusiasm delightful. I look forward to watching all your videos!
