FlossTube No.9 - Show Notes!


I have something fun and 
what I hope will be helpful 
for you that I will be posting
 monthly here on my blog.

As you know I have a new 
YouTube Channel 
and each month I film 
a new episode of FlossTube.

Within each of those episodes
 I show my cross stitching 
that I have been doing that
 month and tell all about it.

I have a lot of color changes 
that I do so that my stitches
 match my decor style and many of you
 have been asking if I would 
share those color conversions.

So each month I'll be doing
 "show notes" 
and sharing my colors on
 each "finished" piece that I 
have shown in that particular episode.

Last night I filmed FlossTube No. 9 
and here are my show notes.

You do an amazing job with your color conversions. I really enjoy your You Tube videos.

Wow, your embroidery work is perfection as is your love for quilting! I love your blog and even visit the old files. I have read all books you recommended and love the past as much as you! Thank you for sharing your talents and preferences.

Beautiful cross stitch designs and colors. I'm a total newbie heading off to heck out your new Floss tube channel, as I'm looking for tips and good projects for beginners.

Oh my word, is there no end to your talents, these are great. When do you find the time? Will have a look at the Utube. Thanks for sharing.

I love your videos.

suz said...

thank you for the conversion information! When I put this pattern into my inventory, I noted that I didn't like the colors...normally I list the called for threads so I'm ready to kit it up. This is very much what I would prefer and the new info (w/a note that it's your conversion) is in my inventory!

Beautiful ! :)

Ok. So the idea was when I heard about your You Tube channel and great tutorials, that I would save some money. Wrong. Why? Because I had to go and order the two books I didn't have and then decided I needed the book holder. Thanks so much for the really good videos. They are very inspiring to get moving and get something done.

Hi Lori...I really enjoyed your video and watched it twice. Such beautiful finishes! I enjoy learning from you and gleaning tidbits of info like other bloggers or You Tube crafters. Thanks for the inspiration. Always something NEW! 💁‍♀️🧵✂️🪡❤️
