A podcast for people who love knitting, Dorset Buttons, creativity & Scotland, especially the Highlands & Islands.

Welcome to the 36th episode of my podcast – Small Wins & Celebrations.

Thank you for joining me once again and welcome if you are a first time listener.

I’m back!

It’s been a while!

The podcast is back.

A short episode to say hello again, reconnect and highlight a couple of events coming up.

I chat about focusing on small wins and celebrating them.  Mindshift changes and being content with what I achieve – the quality not the quantity.

Many of my 2020 and 2021 projects have yet to be completed and I’m ok with that.

What’s new in the world of TJFrog?

I chat about what I’ve been up to which includes a new job as a craft workshop tutor at a charity on Skye.

I have a new office, new desk and while there is still some organising to do I love that I have my wool out in what looks like my own mini yarn shop!

Dorset Buttons 2022

2022 sees the 400th anniversary of Dorset Buttons and I chat about the Dorset Buttons 2022 project which aims to promote Dorset Buttons and encourage people worldwide to celebrate this beautiful heritage craft.

And if you’d like to be part of the online gallery please submit your Dorset Button photos here.
