Stop Me If You've Heard This One

Completed: Feb. 2020 (revised Sept. 2020)
Constructor notes: Maybe my first halfway-decent puzzle? (Somewhat more decent after a revision!) Those who know me will not be surprised by this theme in the slightest. Apologies.

Find a Partner

Completed: Nov. 2019
Constructor notes: My very first completed crossword, and a very niche one at that. Should only be attempted by contradancers. Created with Phil, a free crossword creator by Keiran King. There are lots of things I'd do differently now, but hey, it's my first puzzle!
