  1. HI claire. i loved your podcast as always. i hope that this coming week is better for you. I love the cross stitch and thanks for the tip. i have a big one of van goughs stary night that i started just before i started to knit, it got put to the side, i will pick it up again one day. i will definitely try parking for it, i am a self taught cross stitcher and i didnt even think of looking up different techniques.

    I love you music for today. is it from a musical? i know it, i just cant place it.


    1. Hi Helena,

      Thanks for the comments!! So far so good hopefully that won't jinx it but I'm definitely out of my funk! Wow that sounds like an awesome kit, I've opened the thread in the ravelry group if you wanted to post a picture would love to see it :-) Yes I found people talking about it on a site like ravelry but for cross stitch called craftbubble, don't know if you have heard of it? And then I just googled it, it took a while for me to get used to it but it was well worth the effort, especially for a larger project. Yes it's from Mumma Mia, the version I played was from the film with Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried singing.


  2. Hi Clare
    I will have to dig out my cross stitch and have another crack at it.

    I really liked teh Mumma Mia movie, i wish i had gone to see the show when i was in london... oh well next time :)
