Episode 60: Just Settle Down

Join me for the Shorty's Sutures Podcast where the conversation twists and threads its way through crochet, knitting, sewing, embroidery and other stitchy projects.

The last episode was about settling in with friends (old and new), this episode is all about me settling down after a move and getting my crafty life back to a functional state.

All of this change has kept me from doing much stitching.

Episode 57: Coming Into Focus

The Shorty's Sutures Podcast is where the conversation twists and threads its way through crochet, knitting, sewing, embroidery and other stitchy projects.

Happy (belated) New Year! I've never been a big resolution keeper (I've made plenty but not kept them). Inspired by Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade to choose a word for the year (Episode 105: Choosing your Word for the Year) to help me be more intentional in 2016.  My word is Focus. This word almost immediately came to me as I was listening to Helen, so I felt that connection that confirmed that's what would work for me.
