Recently, Hoxton Handmade from the Electric Sheep podcast asked me for a short bit of writing regarding my thoughts about gender and crafting for her podcast. I just listened to the resulting show and I gotta say, it's fantastic. She's got a great voice, great delivery, well thought out ideas and made a half hour fly by. Head here to check out the episode on gender and crafting: Episode 12 - Slugs and Snails
Am seriously chuffed :))) And my thanks again to Paul for contributing to the show and running a great blog.

I'm not very good with the random questions, attempting to be witty and interesting in the space of six words and probably failing at both. Nevertheless if you have made it over here thanks for taking a look and I hope you enjoy what you find.
