  1. I just finished watching your video and the eye candy was hard to resist. Thanks for sharing your time and your expertise with us readers!!

  2. Lady! You are one busy gal! As I'm watching you, I'm also checking out your blog in another window and seeing all the work and detail you put in to everything you do, perfection - perfection, I love it! As I watched your first videos you brought to mind all the work my grandmother did for me on finishes, she was s seamstress by trade, and could do just about anything, just like you do with your stitching... I'll keep watching!

  3. Your videos always make me smile and this one was no exception. Thank you so much for the comprehensive show notes, too!

  4. That was a wonderful video. Thank you for taking the time to detail all your show notes and links. I've already popped over to check out the Mary Gibson sampler.

  5. Loved your video. I just realized I can watch your floss tube videos on my TV, and how awesome that is, like a visit from you. I loved all your projects, and I just ordered those project bags from Amazon. Thanks for all the enjoyment of your videos and all the info that you share. I would love to learn counted canvas (and punchneedle too).

  6. I really enjoyed your video today. I truly loved all of your projects that you showed. Your finishes are just awesome. Thank you for all the info above. You had me laughing today...such a cute presentation. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

  7. Loved your video as always very encouraging. You touched my heart when you mentioned how your family likes to leave the people who come in and out of your lives better for knowing you. I didn't grow up in a very loving or joyful home and our wonderful loving God put good people like your family to come into my life and definitely made me a better person for knowing them and learning from them. You are very special - I hope you know that.

  8. The Genny Morrow rice is fantastic! I did it several years ago and had it scheduled for the next year. My husband actually asked me to start on it right away. Of course I changed some color and added metallics. I bought it from Kathy Rees when she still had her shop and I’ve done several of her pieces since then, also. I love what you do, you’re so talented in so many areas! Thank you for sharing your talents!

  9. Oh my! This is such a wonderful post, jam-packed with information - love it!! Thank you Vonna!

  10. Vonna: Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, oh my what a great post, so many links, thank-you.
    I love FlossTube.


  11. Vonna do you have a video for cube, I found it on your blog, you are truly amazing!!Thank you

    1. I do not have a video, but I have a written tutorial for a cube on my tutorial blog as well as lots and lots of other tutorials that I've written over 10 years time.
