I just wanted to say a big thank you to all who have emailed or contacted me through Ravellry to say “Hi” or let me know that you are patiently waiting until things get better and I can put out another podcast. I really appreciate your support.
There have been soooo many great new podcasts that have come out in the last few months:
For your listening enjoyment please try:
- This isn’t in the show because I didn’t realise it was still going, but Manda from Knitting Psychos is doing a walk for Breast Cancer. She needs donations and has a contest going for those who donate. Visit this post to find out more.
ANNECDOTE – Childhood memories
- In my primary school days I was most taken with a Bargelllo project in shades of purple; a green macrame owl and acryllic wool God’s eyes.
- The main annecdote in this episode is written by Jessica from Folk and Fairy. You can read it and view the beautiful accompanying photograph here.
- It was time to buy my Mum a gift again.
- I bought her some handmade earings made of china from the broken vases that families smashed under the Communist regime in China.
- In my travels to find Mum a gift I discovered some handmade felt scarves and embelished teatowels.
- I didn’t have the time to make her a gift, but wish I had.
- I wish I had the time to start a new craft, and ever hopeful, I’ve jsut bought a tatting shuttle…does anyone know how to do this? I’ve seen a video on u-tube. I’d love something like the wooden shuttle she’s using – I’ve only ever seen a red plastic one here – which is the one I bought.
- Wouldn’t you know it! Just as I started this new section, the Starbucks corporation has decided to pull out stores in Australia and NZ. Don’t they know I have a podcast here?!
- So, I’m on cafe` crawl to find a new stitch spot.
- Today I explore one destination by the sea, but the search continues.
- Today we have Melissa’s visit.
- She laments the demise of another local yarn store. But she also delights in the closing down sale.
- Speaking of LYS’s – I’ve heard on Ravellry that Rubi and Lana’s at Gordon, Sydney, is closing down. This is one of the most pretty and cosy yarn shops in Sydney. It’s such a shame.
- Believe it not, Ripley, I was inspired by Sport! Specifically by Sally McLennan’s approach to her “finals”.
- In this episode I played “Scenes of My Silly Childhood” by Chapter 9
- This song was from the Podsafe Music Network.
