Episode 120~Grounded South

Hello, 

The winter snow has finally arrived. Ruby and I get out for a romp in this edition to talk all the magic of fresh fallen snow. I’ve been staying south at my parents in Maine as the storms have made it challenging to drive home. But I’ve had lots of extra time with my niece and nephew and opportunity to work on projects.  On this episode I feature some new found exploration in to fountain pens and cursive writing practice. As well as share the new book from Natalie Chanin, Embroidery.  As always, thank you for being here and coming along.  A deep heartfelt thank you for supporting my work any way you can.

The Turning of the Year:I

Hello!

I hope this finds you well and in good spirits. Phew! What a weekend I had gathering the stories for this first of four episodes this month. My neighbors must think I’m a little do-lally for running around the woods with my camera and tripod 😉 Ruby doesn’t though and as usual throughly enjoyed our walk in the woods. I have linked below to my music list on Epidemic Sound but this video also features Jingle Bells from the YouTube Library and two songs from the free music archive. I have listed materials and images I used in the monoprint project for Patrons of this podcast as a separate post. But I think they would be easy to find at an art store.

I’ll catch up with you soon about my knitting…or lack there of in the coming week. In the meantime, fond wishes.

Sarah

Episode 117~ Of Commutes & Quilts

Well, the title says it all. I’ve had a hard time recovering all the items I brought down this fall during my long stint at my parents. And yes, I’ve put ALL of those items already in my car for the commute home on Thursday! My mum joins me on this episode to talk about her cross stitching and wreak general havoc 😉 I revisit Manchelopi and my knitting projects and share a new book in my library. I hope wherever you are in the world you’re in good spirits. Many thanks for those that contribute financially through Patreon. Blessings,

Sarah

Episode~116 Calm Seas…I thought

Hello All,

Well, it didn’t go as planned. You’ll see if you make it to the end where I make a rather bumbling appearance to explain the abrupt interruption to the regularly scheduled format. Alas, it’s a little problem. You’ll just have to wait till next time to hear about my quilting plans and see the new books I acquired. If you’ve been following my instagram account you’ll know my copy of Sark from Kate Davies arrived. I’ve also signed up for her All Over Club. Are you wondering if your predictions about my progress on the Stephen West MKAL came true? Luckily, that did make it into the clip I imported on to the computer and didn’t leave on the camera. Yup…where’s the camera you might wonder? Uh, it’s at my house up north and where am I? Uh, I’m at my parent’s in the south. RATS! As always, thank you for tuning in. See you soon.

Episode 115~Leaning In

Hello,

September was a strange and challenging month. I am so thankful for my creative curiosity during these moments. I am also grateful for you all who spend some time tuning in and investing in this project. I’d be lying if I wasn’t longing for those slow, summer days.

“Leaning in” seems in appropriate sentiment at this time and I want to acknowledge that I am leaning in to my blessings to support others experiencing the uncertainty life brings. A wise friend of mine once told me “worry is just wasted prayer” so I’ll be making time for a few prayers as this month comes to a close.
