Episode 80 LIVE: This is what happens when I don’t podcast for a while …


This week’s show as Live Streamed with our Patreon subscribers – thank you to those who joined and watched! We had a lot of fun and all of you brightened my day for joining in! Welcome to new and returning viewers – Thank you for watching.

Today, we chatted about new beginnings and changes in our home life. We discovered how I build my spinner’s control cards, my thought process and some examples, as a result of a question asked. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to approach me in the Ravelry group or here! Next, we explored many finished spins from the past couple of weeks which are finished because I haven’t been podcasting! This is what happens when there’s a bit of a break! haha Lastly, I share a new, non-handspun project that is part of our ongoing Stashdown CAL (craft-along) on Ravelry. I hope you enjoy the show!
