Episode 3 – Making things, and big load of recs

Welcome to the third episode of Our Friday Call. This month Lazulus and theoscarcat have been out and about – first to a yarn festival – Fibre East, and then for their annual pilgrimage to the Festival of Quilts, where they promptly ignore the quilts, and go buy fabric instead.

Good times.
