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.
