Hi Makers. :-) Who would like to participate in an end-of-year swap of a Christmas card or greeting card? :-) I give some details here in this quick video, so if you would like to join in, go to the Ravelry group for the YarnderWoman Podcast to sign-up. Sign-ups close 18 November 2017 (Australian WST). Happy crafting!
Hi everyone and welcome to my craft blog from my recent trip to Japan - September/October 2017. Come with me as I visit various yarn and craft shops in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, as well as hanging out with the wonderful Frenchie, designer extraordinaire behind Aroha Knits.
Audio book - "Friend Request" by Laura Marshall. There was coughing on the audio, and the story took a little while to get there, but it was overall very good.
"Slow " by Brooke McAlary. (I listed to the audio version.) So good and so inspiring, especially regarding decluttering and tidying. "Destination Simple", Brooke's first book, has just been released in North America.
The Book Club I was a member of is sadly no longer running.

Welcome to Episode 58 of the YarnderWoman Podcast, a show about knitting and living well for yourself, others and the planet. This episode was filmed on Tuesday 7 February 2017 in Perth Western Australia.
Finished "Moving your DNA" byKaty Bowman.
Trying to move a lot more. Walked a few bus stops when there was a 15 min
wait for bus. Includes outtakes at the end of audio. Funny. Just yesterday
finished "Movement Matters". Essential reading for everyone.
Stacking; convenience = someone else's detriment and detriment tothe environment. Just move more and move in nature!
Sorted out the stash. Everything came out. Some
things to sell in de-stash threads. Now ALL organised. I group by dyer.
Bags organised - now over two boxes, in size order/grouping. Soooo happy
and pleased - I feel really positive towards my stash and feel organised
for all my projects, going forward
I feel really energised with ideas of how I can
try to make a difference. Come and join me to chat about your thoughts in this week's episode thread!
