A little spark of joy and all crafty things talk

Merion and Mr X-Stitch are both love crafts superheroes!! They always make me smile, even on the gloomiest of days. I take me knitting out, play the podcast and it’s never a disappointment - the podcast is full of kindness, fairness, openness, inspiring with all crafty things, fabulous artists and art/crafts, and obviously knitting socks gets a mention once or twice :)))) loved all the episodes in season one and cannot wait for future crafty talks with the love crafts show!!! Thank you Team you are amazing! ...and now I’m off to my knitting HQ on a giraffe.... xx
