Have you seen my Instagram feed lately?  I’ve started a “WIP Wednesday” series of mini stitch tutorials.  Approximately 90 seconds or less of one of the fun stitches that’s currently on my needles!  Since these will show up in (future) patterns, this blog post is a place you can find the list of mini-tuts.  Check back frequently!

If all goes according to plan, I’ll have a new one each Wednesday.  And yes, I’m hoping to join the IG creator’s program to help cover TE costs, but am shy of the required number of followers, so if you like what you see please share on your stories!

If you have a stitch combo you’d like to see, drop me a line 😊.
