Episode 128 – Midsummer

Thank you so much for tuning in to the Cozyegg flosstube/podcast! In this episode I share some finishes, a new start, and some plans. Oh and I can’t forget some dark 13 stitching too.



Fifteen Friends: Jane Ann 1871 by Cozyegg Designs (me!) – stitched on 56ct Hogbristle by Fox & Rabbit with Au Ver a Soie Soie Surfine. She is available as a PDF download in my shop or as a physical booklet from Attic Needlework and A Stitching Shop.

Death’s Head Planchette by Cozyegg Designs – this was originally gifted to attendees of the first Dark October Séance in 2021, but I’m planning on releasing the pattern later in the year. I stitched this on 40ct Picture This Plus Ale with overdyed cottons. I made some thread changes from the original, so if you want the updated threads, leave me a comment.


Beyond the Veil Planchette by Cozyegg Designs – this one also was a gift for the Dark October Séance attendees, but for 2022. I stitched this on 40ct Zweigart Anthracite with overdyed threads and again made a few adjustments on the colors. I’ll be releasing this one later this year as well.



Ship of Life by Need’l Love Company – stitching with DMC on 40ct Flannel Flower by Fox & Rabbit. This design has been a long time unicorn chart for me and am so grateful a friend lent me hers. Really loving it.

Tombstone Spots by The Primitive Needle – Weeks on 40ct Affogato by Fiber on a Whim. I worked on this a bit over the past few months and am also picking it back up for dark 13 stitching this month.

Greenhouse of Oddities SAL by Lola Crow Cross Stitch – finally took the plunge and purchased this design. I think I’m going to use 40ct Boston by Seraphim for it and the called for DMC (I may replace the 310 with Anchor black).

Deadly Seed Co

Deadly Seed Co. by Lola Crow Cross Stitch – no chart travels (even electronically) alone, so I had to purchase this one too. Planning on using a piece of 40ct Heritage by Picture This Plus to stitch it on.
