  1. Had a bit of trouble getting started, so am now experienced at pulling out stitches. 🙂 Kimberly – would love advice on making results a little more refined. It’s obviously not perfect, get that, but I’m not exactly loving it yet. Hope there are tips to use so I want to frame it when finished! Love your live videos, thanks!
