Love it!

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.

Love this podcast

A podcast is a great way to remind yourself of why you love a hobby. I listen to this one because it is fun, interesting, and reminds me to get my cross stitch project out once in a while.

Keep it up!
