What's happened?

I almost forgot that this fortnight's FlossTube was a thing I needed to do - eek! But I got there in the nick of time and had lots of things to share.

I chat about the WIPs I worked on, a mixed-media piece I created, an update on enamel pins, share some embroidery patterns and even about my entries to [drumroll please] this year's state fair! I wonder if I will find myself the proud owner of any ribbons in a few weeks?

Leave a comment below (or on the YouTube video itself) about whether you're a part of the same two stitch-alongs I'm working on (both of which are fully released now), what your thoughts are on the designs I shared and if you have any questions on commissioning me for something.

What's FlossTube?

FlossTube is a community on YouTube of people who use fabric, thread and anything in between to create pieces of art. It not only includes cross-stitching and embroidery, but it also includes quilters, designers and anyone else who does stitching-related crafts. It's a way for someone to share what they're working on, "swag" they've received, sharing tips and techniques, celebrating finished pieces and so much more.

I'm hoping to build on my little community that I've got by expanding more to YouTube and what better way than to show off what I'm working on and boast about my latest finished pieces?

It's neat to be sharing with you all what I'm working on outside of regular social media posts, like the usual over at Instagram. I hope you're enjoying my FlossTubes! Don't forget to help out (for free!) by;

over there if you like what you see!
