Thank you so much for tuning in to the Cozyegg flosstube/podcast! In this episode I share what I’ve been working on and my focus for 2023.
I had the opportunity to attend a virtual lecture with the Royal School of Needlework and hear Michele Carragher speak, which was really amazing. If you ever get the change to hear her talk about her work, I highly encourage you to do so.

Since I’ve been using a digital planner for my everyday planning, I thought I’d give a digital cross-stitch journal a try. I purchased the Witchy Stitcher cross-stitch journal (I got the deluxe version). So far, I’m loving it.
Focusing on framing or fully finishing my pieces – since I will likely be spending a good amount of time this year stitching on models, I wanted to focus on something achievable rather than trying to complete a number of WIPs. And what better way than to get some things fully finished.
What’s in My Project Roll
These are all mostly things that need to be framed, although a few of them I haven’t decided if I’ll frame them or not.
