Merry Day 1....

 ~ Warm Welcome to my Blog ~

and please enjoy with me these

Day 1....
Merry Day 1,  my friends! I want to point out to new people that may be interested in following me here on my old blog, a few things about it.
Please scroll up to see my Link Bars. In my header bars, I have a page about who I am, my YouTube Channel - where I have videos about how to finishing your projects on your own. I have links to my TUTORIAL BLOG - where I have shared for 18 years all of my techniques both older techniques and newer ones for finishing your needlework - ALL FREE! I have written tutorials with pictures and video tutorials. All of my videos are Closed Captioned for hearing impaired. 

I also have reviews on needlework stands, I have recommendations on products - that I have purchased MYSELF - I do not do paid recommendations or recommendations based on some company approaching me to give me a product for my posting a positive review because they gave it to me. Nope everything here was purchased expressly by me, for the said purpose and I have shared because I find it highly superior to anything else I have used. I have color conversions, free boarders that I have created for sharing, I have recipes I have created and my family loves so I thought I'd share because maybe your family might love them too. I have shared Ideas on how to organize and streamline your crafting/stitching, and more! 

Don't like finishing your own projects? Well I do finish for the public and several designers and have done so for going on 18 years. 

For 18 years, I have been a blogger, an advocate for learning how to finish your own pieces and I have given it all because I want to grow the hobby and love of handwork in the world. Because handwork has brought me so much personal joy! And sharing IS caring!

I invite you all to join me for the next days prior to the big day - my favorite day of the year - Christmas Day!

To kick off the month I have created for those individuals wanting to learn/finish their own needlework projects a new video tutorial: 
and please...remember: 
if you use my tutorials (any part or piece) for your finishing and I have taught you - credit my name.
This ISN'T because I am a narcissist (yes, I have been told that several times lately) nor do I love to hear and see my name over and over. It is SIMPLY because the more people that share my name, the more people I can HELP teach to finish. Because I can teach people - I believe I've proven that over 18 years. It takes A LOT of time to create these tutorials, I'm doing it to help others, not feed my ego.

Please enjoy in good health!

Merry Christmas - Day 1!
All my love, 
Vonna xxxx


  1. Hello Vonna. Love the introduction ... I have been following you for a very long time. I have learned from your teachings and been encourage by your writings. Merry Christmas to you and the family.

  2. Looking forward to your Merry Days. I always enjoy your posts (even if I hardly ever comment on here, but on Instagram I do) I am still reading, following and learning from you Vonna. I will be doing a trial run of your bun recipe. Homemade is always better than bought. I also, will be trying the Pumpkin muffin recipe. Why anyone would call you a narcissist is beyond me. I still call them jealous people because they can not live up to your kindhearted ways.

  3. So happy you are doing this again! You are an inspiration to me, not just at Christmas, but all year long. I love your tutorials! And as a fellow believer, I love that your share your faith. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  4. Merry Day 1 to you Vonna. I love your blog and everything you share with us. I look forward to all your posts during this holiday season. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Enjoy the season !

  5. Happy Merry Day 1 to you, my friend! Thank you for all that you do and offer to this stitching community of ours. And I for one truly appreciate your closed captions on your videos. xoxoxox

  6. And Merry to you! Thank you for all of your tutorials. I've enjoyed cross stitching for years and never took the finished items to the next step. You have helped me grow in that capacity! Thanks for sharing your talents with us. I look forward to learning many more new techniques from you! Merry Christmas to you!

  7. Thank you Vonna, your instructions are so great and your ideas so extensive.
    Enjoy the time until Christmas
