This episode kicks off with my recent creative exploits, including a knitted shawl crisis and a Christmas update.  It also includes a giveaway, a special offer and lots of beer.  (Honestly!)  The main show topic is gift wrapping.  So you know the drill - sit back, relax, grab your current crafty work in progress, and a beer if you like, and join in with the crafty banter.

It's been a few weeks since the last episode so this show is a something of a crafty catch up.  There will, as always, be a works in progress update.  Our roving reporter Kate tells us all about the Knitting and Stitching Show in London.  Also you'll hear a little bit about my recent trip to Jersey.  So grab a cuppa and let's settle down for a crafty catch up.

This bumper episode explores ideas for 'man crafts' and concludes that there is really no such thing!  Craft shouldn't be gender stereotyped.  Craft is for all - it's universal.  Charles is a guest on the show and we make Christmas cake soap and share crafty ideas.  Charles is in charge of the Guernsey section of the show and it's all about dolmens.  There is also a special offer for all podcast listeners and blog readers.  So sit back, relax, grab a cuppa and enjoy the crafty banter.

This show is all about Guernsey's 2011 North Show and features co-host Chloe and new 'friend of the show' Janet.  It includes audio recorded from the show as well as a little history.  The show is wrapped up with our recent creative exploits (we thought we'd better include a little craft after virtually forgetting to mention it in the North Show section.  Oops!)  It also features a kazoo solo, a sonic screwdriver and a tarantula.  Intrigued?  You should be...

In this episode I am joined by a guest co-host - the lovely Charles.  Most of this episode's content has been driven by Charles, hence the title 'Charles in Charge!'  (Before you ask, no, it isn't an homage to the 80s American sitcom featuring Diagnosis Murder star, Scott Baio... although that is a thought for another episode...!) We chat about my recent creative exploits as well as Charles's recent culinary exploits, as he is known for being quite a foodie.  We'll share recipes and cooking tips, as well as a food orientated Guernsey segment, with 'a twist'.  Bon appetit.

This is a mini episode of the podcast, not in the usual format, featuring me and hubby chatting about our recent visit to the Bayeux Tapestry in France.  I hope you enjoy this brief (occasionally accurate) history lesson!

This podcast episode is all about buttons (unsurprisingly!) It also includes an update on Martine's recent creative exploits (lots of knitting, a little gardening and some button related activity). There is an update on giveaways, a few podcast recommendations and the Guernsey section of the show is all about famous people associated with our little island. So sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
