GREETINGS FROM MARGATE!

Welcome to episode 11 of Buddy’s Buddies!

WELCOME TO 2020 THOUGH! Happy new year to you and you and ESPECIALLY you! May it be all you wish it to be.


Even though that lil' intermission back there was only a few weeks, it truly seems like months and months... I hope the festivities were grand if you engaged in them, and if not, all good too - I trust you are have a decent start to 2020 thus far and your everyday is going as great as we all hope. I am back and ready to go with SEASON 2 yo, and I'm ever so pleased to have you here with me and joining in once more for the podcast - and this time I'm doing things slightly different in having a non-Margatian up in guest seat! Every now and then I'm going to try and do this, as it's cool to mix things up a bit I reckon - especially when it's someone like my good friend Keith Clark!


Keith is an astonishing cross-stitcher, who's been in the game for a good while and basically turning into a fully fledged insane genius with it. He's cross stitched the Fresh Prince, the London Underground, a Beastie Boys infographic, the Strange Famous crew, Elvis, and just innumerable others AS WELL AS ME for heck's sake! Yes indeed, Keith is a crazy guy with it but a lovely one too and certainly a very calm, collected individual who will most definitely inspire you to pick up a needle and start things up yourself. We get into so much here, including his own stitch-based protests, other heavy hitters in the game, how you can start and the process involved, references, his life spent living on a boat, music, podcasts and a bunch of other ace gossip. It was a real treat to chat with him back in Summer 2019 and here are the results - I very much hope you enjoy and thanks for returning to join me in welcoming more Buddy's Buddies! 2020 YO! Let's do the damn thing...!!!
