An Honour

I've been interviewed lots of times - newspaper, radio, television, podcasts.  It's always an honour to have someone be interested in you and what you do.

It is especially nice when it is a fellow artisan - someone who understands the creative urge, who doesn't think you are a little bit...strange...a little bit...warped.

I was very surprised when I got an email from Felicia Lo of Sweet George Yarns last August asking if I would be interested in being interviewed for her podcast.  She said interviews were generally about 20-30 minutes.

OTOH, this is moi, after all, and I do seem to have a very lot to say and our interview lasted closer to 55 minutes.  I really thought she would have to edit it to make it fit the more usual 20-30, but it appears that she didn't.  (!)

The interview went live this morning.  However I was on the road coming back from Circle Craft and for some reason my ipad wouldn't link to their website.  So - we are in the door, starting to unpack and I'm sifting through my inbox and trying to catch up on being away for 8 days.

First priority will be to get the studio organized, financials sorted, make a plan.  And then see if I can actually stick to the plan without haring down rabbit holes.

(For another podcast, WeaveCast is still up and available to listen to.)

Hah! Two people I know personally chatting on my iPad! Ain’t technology grand? Off to listen in...

P.S. Glad you made it home safe and sound. It was lovely to see you for a few moments at the Circle Craft Market!

We seemed to miss the worst of the weather, which was very nice. ;)

Thank you so much, Laura! It was absolutely my pleasure to chat with you and I feel like I could have gone on and on. I do love talking with people who love this craft so much. Thanks again for joining me for the conversation!

And yes, I miss WeaveCast!
