May's theme is Patriotic (so sorry if you're not a citizen of the USA; you might not be excited about these, but hang in there, next month's release is going to be universally appealing)! In this clip, I show you my two new designs. I also talk about a lovely gift that I received, wait for cherry petals to fall into my coffee, and have a brief chat with Freaky the Cat. You can find the artist that created my mug here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/LennyMud
Show and Tell, New Release Announcement, Adoptions, Camera Trouble, and if you make it all the way to the end, some Beekeeping and a Piano Recital!

I know you want to know what I brought home from Market this year, right? Well here it is. Along with way more rabbit trails than necessary.
Just me, my barn, some birds, and lots of captions. Because I learned a new skill. Oh, and there might be a few sneak peeks as well. And an antique sampler. And local history. And one little-known fact about myself.
You've seen my PDF tutorials for finishing designs from my catalogue, but now you get to hear me ramble and watch my sassy blue fingernails as I demonstrate my finishing technique for a strawberry scissor fob. Mistakes, forgotten elements, cut-and-splice video editing, and a bit less than what I'd hoped for finish; it's all there. BUT... that's what makes it authentic and real, right? :) Hope you enjoy, and stick around for more revelatory videos in the future. Happy Stitching!
April is Bee Month! In this clip, I show you my two brand new Bee-themed designs. I also talk about scissors, show you how I anchor the end of my thread when I'm making a braid, and discuss the one thing I have in common with Harry Potter.

Just a little peek at the five new designs I'll be releasing at the 2018 Nashville Needlework Market, including a bit of rambling about each one and where it's inspiration sprung from. Oh, and I have hot pink fingernails.
Rambling about things that I didn't plan to talk about, adoptions, a new release, and what's coming next. Email: email@example.com Etsy: heartstringsamplery.etsy.com Blog: thetwistfamily.blogspot.com
