Episode Twenty : Meet Megan’s Baby Brew!

We’re baaack!! I know we didn’t really go anywhere in terms of the podcast but actually we had pre recorded 20 episodes so that Megan could have her baby – and she did so with flying colours so here we are with the beautiful baby Olimi!!

This episode is a proper catch up and a chance to talk to you all about whats been going on the last few months! Lots of things!

We also get straight into the good stuff – the sewing chat! What we’ve been making, the patterns we’ve been lusting after and what we’ve been loving in our community.

I’m sure you’ll hear the gorgeous Olimi snuffling throughout – it’s not Hobbes this time – we’ve got a new sheriff in town! 

I hope you enjoy our homecoming podcast and we are so excited to be back in the podcast nook!
