Episode 39: Project Reality Check

I've been known to have an epiphany from time to time, which is exactly what happened as I was preparing for this episode. Join me as I reflect and reconnect with projects that have been neglected, forgotten about out or fearfully pushed out of my mind, as well as chat about what I've actually finished.

Speaking of crochet and leading into the next segment, I was reminded of a great way to utilize fabric scraps and crochet a rug. Be sure to check out Crazy Mom Quilts' tutorial for crocheting a rug out of cotton scraps.
