Episode 97: Magical October

Thank you so much for tuning in to the Cozyegg flosstube/podcast! In this episode I share two finishes and the beginning of #darkoctoberstitching.  Music by: Bensound.


  • Christmas Basket Ornament by Catherine Theron (Theron Traditions) from the 1999 Just CrossStitch Ornament issue – stitched with my own overdyed conversion on 40ct Flax by Zweigart.  Stitched and gifted to Marlene (Stitching by the Lake) for her birthday surprise organized by Abi Bellastitch  You can see all the ornaments Marlene received in the video I linked on her channel, and the videos each stitcher made with a birthday wish for Marlene on Abi’s channel in the linked video.  I used Vonna’s twisted cording tutorial.
