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
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!
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!

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.
36 minutes of stitchy chit chat on the banks of the Sandy River, including an introduction to my two newest designs. The middle segment is a honeybee update and some scenes around my yard and garden (say hello to my chickens!). At the very end, should you decide to stick around, you'll be treated to 21 minutes of Twistapalooza IV, our front yard Summer party. Mary Gail is by The Scarlet Letter. My version was stitched from a kit, so all colors and linen are as-called for. Any changes I made to the charting were pretty minor. Anna's Prayer was originally released in October of 2009, and is still available for sale in my etsy shop. I couldn't find the Shoebill Stork video I told you about, but here's a pretty cool little clip showcasing one of the cool and quirky aspects of my favorite bird (volume up!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noF-CLNSUZU Email: email@example.com Etsy: heartstringsamplery.etsy.com Blog: thetwistfamily.blogspot.com

A completely ad-libbed video that includes a funny story about a fob tree, introduction to my recent retreat designs (not available for public purchase yet), a new release, an antique sampler, and in my Summer-relaxed-mode I totally forgot to announce the adoptions from the last episode (if you were one of the adoptees, I'll be contacting you by responding to your original comment). All while wearing sunglasses. Email: email@example.com Etsy: heartstringsamplery.etsy.com Blog: thetwistfamily.blogspot.com
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.
