These Are a Few of My Favourite Things


In the past when I had the shop, I ate, slept and drank all things fibre and crafty related, which was part of the reason for thinking an Irish Magazine on that very topic was needed.  Now Olann and is a reality, I find my addiction to craft, fibre and handmade has grown even more.  I’ve become so immersed in my love of these three things, that barely a day goes by, that I don’t find myself lusting after some new fibre, publication or handmade item.

I forget about many of these lovelies and there’s only so much information one brain can retain.  I’ve already made room, when I tidied up and evicted the part of my brain that was staying up-to-date on world affairs.  The world has, in my opinion, really gone quite mad and I can’t help but compare some of the bigger events of last year to a comic book sketch.  As a result, I’ve pretty much given up on reading a newspaper, or watching the news.  I’m not completely sure this enforced ignorance is bliss, but it’s stopped me wanting to bang my head against a brick wall.  I’m also of the opinion that it’s the best way to opt out of any political discussions, I can’t debate if I simply don’t know.  I’m sure like most things, this will pass and I’ll return to consuming every inch of The Guardian again at some stage, but for now I’ve decluttered.

Back to my original idea, sorry.

So even with the extra room, a notebook and Pinterest, some things still slip through the cracks.  If you’re like me, you probably also spot things that you think would make an ideal gift for a loved one and despite your best intentions, you forget?

With that in mind, I thought it might be a good idea to start to share a few of the latest things to catch my eye.  I’m hoping there might be a thing or two that interests you, or that you haven’t seen and on a more selfish note, I’ll have a record to refer back to.

My latest finds are……

From top left to right

Just a little temptation.

Will I let you into a secret?  I might have already ordered a copy of British Fibre Art Magazine, so expect a review when I receive it.

Happy Making
