  2. Always enjoy your 25 days of Christmas postings. Family is so important to all of us.
    Stitching and finishing is always the best hobby we could have.

  3. I love to hear about the tools and notions you use - each year, there’s been something I didn’t know existed or never thought of having before you posted it!

  4. I love to see your trees and this year's projects, of course! Would appreciate any tips you might have about cutting into a skein of variegated/overdyed/hand-dyed floss--if there's a way to better preserve the mottling. And if it doesn't matter how you cut it, that would be helpful to know, too!

  5. Vonna, I look forward to whatever you wish to share as I always find whatever you include in your 25 days to be inspiring, motivating, and positively delightful. Thinking of you!

  6. Some ideas for finishing that don't involve hand stitching - I want to be done with it quickly so I can move on to my next project :) Maybe something I can do on my sewing machine.

  7. Anything and everything will be enjoyed and appreciated. Would like to see how you finish stand up characters like Stacy Nash's animal crackers

  10. I'm new to your blog, so anything you share is great with me! I enjoy your Youtube channel so much and your finishes are just gorgeous!!

  11. Finishing techniques would be most welcome, as well as the best utilization of threads and fabrics. On second thought, just about anything fiber related!

  12. Anything you want to write about - It's all very interesting.

  13. Your projects, your decorations, any new ways to finish/tools; whatever you choose to share will be interesting and wonderful!

  14. It will be great whatever you show Vonna. But, being you asked where do you buy your fabrics and trims? How do you sew your ruched ribbon on? How thick is your matboard and where do you buy it in the craft store ...framing? Thank you for all your great advice. Looking forward to the 25 days! RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

    This will be my first year of watching your 25 days.I am so looking forward to it. I've watched your videos on how to finish so many things. You inspired me so much. Your talents are amazing.

  16. How Exciting!! I love watching your videos and reading your tutorials for finishing. Just completed 2 ornaments thanks to you! Would love to know any special tips or techniques you haven't already shared. You are a blessing to all of us that are finishing challenged.

  17. Vonna, I too have enjoyed your "25 days" in the past and look forward to it this year. I enjoy seeing your trees, decorations, chit-chat about your family, family traditions, just about anything you could come up with!

    ReplyDelete
  18. It would be very helpful to me to get motivational ideas for how you tackle all your many projects when you would rather just chill out on the sofa. Thanks.................

  19. What fabric color/design do you look for when finishing a project. Does it matter if it's floral, solid, or geometric? Hard for me to decipher what way to go.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh my I’ve never seen your 25 days. I’d like your favorite Christmas cookie recipe, a picture of your tree, I’d like you to design an ornament as I think you are extremely talented, I’d like to see some of Zellers art work. Did not know if you have time for all so pick and chose.

  21. This will be my first 25 days. Very excited! Your blogs always motivate me in some way Vonna. I enjoy reading them and always look for the notification that there is a new one. Thank you for taking the time.

    ReplyDelete
  22. So happy "Vonna's 25 Days of Christmas" will happen again this year. I would like to hear about some of your traditions and how they started.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm so excited that you are planning to do another 25 days of Christmas. I enjoy them so much! I don't really have anything new to add to the requests, but I am interested in how you attach ruched ribbon and rick rack edging. Thanks for all the work you put into the 25 days posts!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love your 25 days! New finishing ideas are always appreciated (how do you finish a drum?), plus new notions.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like to see your top 25 projects that you would like to stitch or continue to work on next year

    ReplyDelete
  26. Whatever you share will be amazing as it always is. I can't wait!

  27. I appreciate you sharing all your knowledge so generously. A tutorial on making cording would be great! I have 2 cording machines and a failure with each. I'm really looking forward to seeing your Christmas décor with all your beautiful stitching!! Mary@stitchingfriendsforever

  29. How wonderful. Although I have been too buisy the whole year long to write many comments here on your blog, I am looking forward to your 25 days!
    Thank you, Vonna!

  31. Hi Vonna,
    I am an elementary school teacher and every teacher I have ever met wants to be a fly on the wall in someone else's classroom to see what the other teachers are doing! So, on that note, how about taking us to some behind the scenes decisions in your stitching life.

    For example - how do you start a piece? (From the fabric selection and fabric prep to the choices to follow a pattern or add your own little "Vonna" touches. Your color choices and perhaps if you already have plans on what you want to do with the project when you start or if you start because it just speaks to you? Do you schedule and calendar and use a spreadsheet or are you a "fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants" kind of gal? You also balance a finishing business, stitching for others and a family. It may seem to private to share but some of us out there might get a boost of inspiration to hear how you "do it all!"

    Another idea might be a little more of how you got started and your journey in the arts. For the creatives and dreamers this might be another boost or multi-vitamin, if you will, that can chronicle how you got from point A to point B and can still encourage the stitching community.

    Yet another suggestion to new stitchers starting up in this Floss-Tube era you might discuss what an online community is like and how you have progressed in this community. Many of your viewers may live far away from opportunities to do a 'stitching weekend' or 'retreat' and may find that their only outreach is online. Our stitching community is now more international than ever and there are those who are just dipping their toes into this outreach. At a time of pulling together in our society this might be a soothing balm to bridge fractious feelings that exist in this world.

    To be honest, I would just love a chance to sit and chat a while so I am up for any topic you choose. Let's just call this a virtual 'get-to-know-you' visit and I'll be happy. What a terrific idea this is! Good luck...oh, and know that somewhere out in the Arizona desert there's a teacher who is excited about sharing the 25 days of Christmas.

  32. Yay! I'm so glad you are doing this again this year! I enjoy everything you blog about. I'm looking forward to seeing your lovely decorating, projects you are working on and news about your beautiful family! Thank you!

  33. Yay it's my favourite advent calendar back again! Whatever you want to share with us will be fantastic I'm sure but I echo Gaye's plea above to learn more about how you select the designs you stitch and materials you use.

  34. Hi Vonna: Love your work, your blog, your youtube. You keep me motivated. If you could, I always think a present for a co-worker or small gift for someone would be a cross stitched initial. Any suggestions on finishes for this, frame it, sachet, on a small box. Thanks

  35. I look forward to your 25 days of Christmas each year. I welcome anything you would like to share, but please don't overload yourself, take care.

  36. Snippets of things that have made you smile during the year, your cats, your trees and your favorite things....cross stitching and not! Just keep it simple!

  38. I just finished reading all the 25 days of Christmas. I needed to catch up. I wanted to say thank you for taking the time to share your faith, family, and stitching know how with us. It was like spending time with a very dear friend reading the posts. Thank you again and know it is appreciated.
