    Hi Lisa, enjoyable as usual. I hope things have settled down, now?
    You certainly have done a lot of spinning. Everything looks so different when it becomes a skein. I just don’t have the patience to convert fibre to yarn, but full of admiration for spinners.
    Understand why there was a break in podcasting. You must put yourself first, we viewers will have to wait when there are constraints on your time.
    take care,
