This bumper episode of the iMake podcast is a feast of crafty, and indeed musical, goodness.  In this show we dig out our sewing machines and gardening tools (tying not to get the 2 mixed up).  We celebrate Guernsey's Liberation Day and consider ways to combat 'inspiration overload' over a cup of coffee.  Friends of the show, Kate and Charles, also put in an appearance.  So grab a work in progress, a glass of Pimms and join me for a crafty catch up.

You'll hopefully know by now that I am taking part in the Third Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week. This bonus podcast episode is my day 5 post. It's 'a bit different' for a number of reasons, but you'll have to listen to the show to find out why. As well as some chat about blog week, I'll also feature some audio recorded during my recent visit to London to see the lovely Kate (aka KatesTwirl). I should warn listeners in advance that there is a lot of swooning over yarn and a fair bit of giggling! In an attempt to be serious, I will also try and comment on Guernsey's recent election. I hope you enjoy this bonus episode and I will aim to get another online at the beginning of May. Oooh, before I forget, if you'd like to check out other bloggers' posts about this topic, Google the code 3KCBWDAY5.

This show is something of a mixed bag, hence the name!  It has been a month since my last show and I have been getting up to all sorts.  There is lots of knitting and a great deal of crafty chatter.  This show features an interview with the lovely Isla, a new friend of the show, and we chat about handmade weddings.  There is also some audio from me and hubby, recorded during our recent trip to the Channel Island of Jersey.  So you know what to do... grab your current crafty work in progress and a large cuppa and join me for a crafty catch up!

Happy new year and welcome to 2012!  As I am returning from a short podcast break, I spend most of this episode catching listeners up with what I've been doing, as well as saying a few thank yous to the lovely people who contacted me during my break. I cover my recent (mostly knitted) creative exploits, touch on Christmas and then turn my attention to the new year.  I share a few of my new year's resolutions and consider a few ways to ensure resolutions are kept.  The Guernsey section of the show is all about the Guernsey Dairy.  Let's catch up!
