A face-to-face chat!

It’s the school holidays here, and we’re in a sudden short lockdown due to a local outbreak, so with schedules being upended, I decided to give the regular Curious Handmade Podcast a break this week.

But we can still catch up and have some crafty, chatty time together.

I’ve got a new video podcast episode up on YouTube
I’m sharing some of my favourite things from this past month: including some lovely gifts I got in the mail and a few I bought myself.

(And yes, there is yarn!)
