Episode 62 - Chit Chat

Download link: Episode 62 Chit Chat

Welcome to episode 62 of the iMake podcast - it's my first show of 2014 and it's a windy one! Today's show is just an informal chit chat and catch up as it's been a while. I had a short, un-planned break (which was lovely I have to admit) but I am now back in the swing of things. So let's settle down with a cuppa and indulge in that crafty chatter...


Welcome (01:01)

Hello and welcome to the show; hello to new and returning listeners.

On to the plan for today's show - it's simply a crafty catch up and chit chat! This is not the usual format (just in case you are a new listener).

Check out Guernsey's recent bad weather here and here.
