Episode Seven: The Long One

Hi everyone!

I know it's been a long time since the last episode but that means I have a lot to share with you all! I'll let you know what I've been up to and share with you all my presents I received while I was away.

So grab your knitting or crochet, curl up somewhere comfortable and enjoy!
