The one where she does Youtube

So I've thinking for ages about making some video content for my blog and I've had lots of lovely peeps asking me for patterns, tutorials and the like in video format.

No, I said emphatically.
I am too technologically challenged to even comprehend how to achieve such things.

And then a while ago, I got a smart phone and a tablet and all these impossible tasks became a little easier.

Actually, a lot easier.

And so, buoyed by my recent adventures on film, I decided to have a go.

I wanted something which looked ok, but the most important thing was its clarity; I wanted the videos to be informative and clear.

So now, with a little precarious balancing of the ipad on the corner of the coffee table and trying to record audio inbetween the dog barking and the kids demanding biscuits, I have cobbled together a few videos.

It's just a little start, but I intend to cover the basic stitches, as well as some simple projects and a few patterns from my blog, too.

The clips are just over there on the left sidebar, so do have a look, and I'd love it if you subscribed to my channel too- just click on that button at the top and you won't miss out on anything new.

Right, am off to order a proper ipad-holder-bracket-type-thingy from a well-known online retailer.....

Wishing you all a fab week,

P.S. do let me know if there's anything you'd like to see as a YouTube tutorial.. x
