FlossTube #4A and #4B ~ Pam and Steph Climb The Wall Higher and Higher

We started off by thanking everyone for watching our videos, and leaving such wonderful comments. We also welcomed any new viewers out there.

Our BIG annoucement was that we had over 500 subscribers, and so it was time for a giveaway. There will be more details in FlossTube #5. Sneak peek: you will have to be a subscriber to win.

We showed two pieces back from the framer. Steph showed her very first FFO, Love by Hands On Designs, with the ingenious kickstand on the back, and Pam showed her Our Neck of the Woods from Nancy's Needle with the "shadow box effect" with the mat board.

We showed our finishes for the week: Taco Sampler by Casey Buonaugurio (always to be known as Taco 2.0) for Pam. I changed several floss colors, pointed out the aggravating specialties stitches, and the substitution of brown seed beads for the ground beef French knots. Steph showed her two Satsuma Street ornaments from Ornament Set 1.

Our Progress Report included Pam's Ye Olde Coffee House from Little House Needlework, her "Not A Creature Was Stirring..." ornament from Casey Buonaugurio in the December 2008 Ornament issue of Just CrossStitch magazine, and her start on Stitchrovia's Canada Sampler. Steph showed her start on Thoreau Upon a Pumpkin by Cross-Eyed Cricket, her return to Live Simply by Lizzie Kate, and her progress on Wizardly by FiddlesticksAU.

Steph showed her very generous RAK from Yvonne The Night Owl Stitcher, as well as the free charts we both got from our friend Anne Marie at Panera Stitch Nite.

As far as Haul goes, Steph showed her Sleepy Hollow Sampler from the Frosted Pumpkin, and the latest free installment of the Stoney Creek Halloween banner, Boo Tree from the Primitive Hare, Fables & Tales by Prairie Schooler, as well as some gems she'd picked up from the half-price box at Keepsakes. She also showed the freebie mini-cat charts from the UK blog Happiness Is Cross Stitching.

Once again, we got interrupted, so in the second half of the episode, Pam showed her two Debbie Patrick house charts, Steinbeck House, and the Kennebunk Maine Christmas House. Pam was enabled by Ali from Alis Stitching Studio FlossTube channel (somehow that got deleted from the video)

We gave another shout-out to Weasley Studios, about meeting Gigi, from Gigi's Cupcakes.

Our future plans include our playdate planned with Nicole, Buckeye Stitcher, who is coming over to stitch and talk about (what else) FlossTube. Can't wait for that!!

Also, Pam gave a plug for Keepsakes Summer Stitch Days, on July 8th and 15th. Phone number to reserve a spot is (513) 563-6845.

Next we filmed the wall behind us. If you missed it, here's the list.
