    Episode 21: Of creativity, swatching and preserving

    In this episode I talk about how my creative practice has taken a bizarre and slightly unexpected turn in recent weeks. I also share some swatching I've been doing for my next sweater knit and how I have been flexing my preserving muscles to capture the taste and colours of the season.

    Episode 20: Musings from lockdown

    Episode 20: Musings from lockdown

    In this episode I revisit my Tonnach cardigan, talking about what blocked my progress and exploring my initial feelings about the finished garment. As operation "Restock my underwear drawer" has started but I'm too brain foggy to talk bra making yet, I share my knicker making efforts, and particularly how sewing your own smalls is actually an act of self-gentleness. Although I don't normally talk about acquisitions, I share a new fabric range that may be of interest. And I finish up with a kitchen experiment inspired by one of the shortages due to Covid-19 lockdown.

    Episode 19: A mix of the familiar and the practical

    Episode 19: A mix of the familiar and the practical

    Times are a bit strange at the moment but the making continues. In this episode I seek comfort in the familiar, albeit familiar with minor tweaks, but due to the nature of the times, I am also very focused on the practical: from fabric efficiency through waste avoidance to finally tackling some of those more mundane makes that I've been deferring as there were always more interesting, elegant projects to work on.
    Despite all the upheaval and uncertainty, Covid-19 is causing my curiosity to buzz more than ever so I share some inspiring gems that have been getting my inquisitive juices flowing of late.

    Mrs M's Scrapbook (March 2020 Extra): Garden nooks & living sills

    Mrs M's Scrapbook (March 2020 Extra): Garden nooks & living sills

    With life in a state of lockdown I really miss having a chat with friends over a cup of tea or glass of wine so I decided to record another short Mrs M's Scrapbook entry. This episode sees me in the garden again and also the kitchen.
    For photos check out the accompanying notes on my blog Mrs M's Curiosity Cabinet. And if you would like a little turn round my garden, I've shot a little footage which is available on YouTube.

    Mrs M's Scrapbook (Mar 2020): Notes from the fabric chest and wool pantry

    The second instalment of Mrs M's Scrapbook sees me sewing a tried and tested pattern to get out of a sewing funk and knitting a comfort cardigan, inspired by the beautiful rings of the Trametes versicolor polypore.

    Episode 18: Experimenting

    Episode 18: Experimenting

    In this episode I give an update on my nylon-free sock experiment and talk about a garden-based fibre experiment. Prompted by a recent pricing experiment amongst some pattern designers, I include a book review about an interesting grassroots initiative, Incredible Edible Todmorden. And I finish with a bumper crop of inspiring gems.
