Well balanced and delightfully energetic
I have really enjoyed listening to this. She is upbeat, encouraging and easy conservationalist. I love that there are weeks she talks about accountability partners, how to meet new crafty friends, how to plan and organize a group meet up. Love that not every episode is an endless parade of stitching works in progress and mail hauls. Thoroughly enjoying.
The podcast is so calming yet full of energy. I love Hannah’s practical tips and how she shares her life and perspectives openly!
My favorite 20 minutes of the week!
This woman and her delightful accent have single-handedly changed my attitude about my cross-stitch habit. I no longer feel guilty about taking the time for myself, and I’ve learned that there are other cross-stitchers out there that felt the way I do and are learning to love it again. Plus, you learn about interesting framing options, design, and she’s very frank about running a business and what that’s like. Delightful.
