I am FluffyFibers on Ravelry and the podcast has a Ravelry group and forum.

1. MY CUP OF TEA
Nectar Enchanté by Les Jardins de Gaia: organic green tea with peach and vanilla.

2. A HANDMADE WARDROBE
I am wearing my Jalie Sweetheart top.

3. EVENTS
3.a. Tea Swap
Names have been exchanged and packages need to be sent out by March 15.
All the details are posted in the ravelry group, and we have started a chat thread. We have also set up a small Pinterest board as inspiration for handcrafted gifties.

3.b Gentle Along
Craft something that makes your life more gentle. Cosy socks, a shawl, a blanket, a tea cosy… Does not need to be cast on specifically for this, and multiple-dipping is of course fine. Can be any craft.
Let’s share ways in which we are mindfully gentle to ourselves.
People have been sharing inspirational thoughts and projects in the Ravelry group.

  1. I haven't listened to the podcast yet, but did look at the show notes. Thanks for the link to the boardwalk skirt. I've just downloaded it. Looks adorable!
