THANK YOU for watching!!!


  1. Don't apologize for an hour long video because it sure didn't seem like an hour. An hour passes quickly when you enjoy what your watching but can be painful if you don't enjoy it. I always enjoy your videos! I would love to see a strawberry finishing tutorial if you ever have the time. I know you're one busy lady and how you get everything done that you do is beyond me.

  2. I love bees too--can't WAIT to see your bee wall! Fab video as always. Thank you Vonna

  3. Thank you, Vonna for sharing your amazing talents with us! You are an inspiration in many ways. I love bees as well, and the “bee wall” idea is one I may copy!

  4. You know you just brighten my day! I will be seeing you in Bridgewater PA in September, it's already on my calendar. Did you make up your tomato pincushion or did you follow a pattern?

  5. Vonna: I live too far away I hope you have a lovely day visiting.


  6. Loved your flosstube, as usual!! I am sooo impressed with your quilting and that adorable pincushion!! Thanks for sharing with us. God Bless! @sharonquilts62

  7. Hey Vonna! I want to thank you for your wonderful cross stitch tips and finishing vids. The one where you show using the eye of the needle to come back up through my fabric has been a game changer for me. You know all the benefits of using this method so I won't rant and rave but I want you to know that it has seriously impacted my stitchie life. Thank you, thank you! Mari
