Episode 22: Finishing Out the Year


Thank you so much for tuning in to the Cozyegg flosstube/podcast!  In this episode I share a recap of 2016, a new start, Christmas stitching, and my projects for the Year of WIPs challenge.

SALs:

  • Join Emily (eclecticpossessions) and I on Instagram for #dark13stitching where we stitch on something dark and creepy on the 13th of every month
  • Join the Hawk Run Hollow SAL hosted by Abi Bellastitch and I – on Instagram you can use the #hrhvillagesal if you’re stitching on Village and/or use the tag #letsallmovetohawkrunhollow for any Hawk Run pieces.  Abi set up a Facebook group called Let’s All Move to Hawk Run Hollow if you’d like to join!

Recap of 2016:

19 stitching finishes that included four Anniversaries of the Heart blocks, Hare Pyns, and the By the Light of the Moon block on my Halloween Neighborhood RR

Pulling my Halloween Neighborhood RR out of cold storage and falling in love with it again.
