Episode 66: Multi-tasking in 2015

Happy New Year!!! In this episode, the girls review the animated movie, Big Hero 6 (note: SPOILERS), and our geek-in-the-field, España, sends a report from Leicester, England.  In the second half of the episode, the girls discuss their crafting round-up for the year and their current works-in-progress.
