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

1. MY CUP OF TEA
Caprice Gourmand by Les Jardins de Gaia: organic green tea with rhubarb, strawberry and vanilla. With white heather honey.

2. A HANDMADE WARDROBE
I am wearing my Day Tripper Top by Shwin Designs.The fabric is from Toto Tissus.

3. EVENTS
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.
You can use the tag #gentlealong on Instagram.

PRIZES:
– One skein of Lambswool and mohair Aran from Gregoria Fibers.
– One braid of BFL and Trilobal from Fondant Fibre in the Happenstance colourway.
The Tea Collection by Clare Devine: one ebook for one winner, and one pattern for two winners.
– A project bag sewn by me.

4. A BIT OF SEWING

– I made a tunic out of Simplicity 1333 and a slinky, Lycra-type fabric.
– I have been making lots of project bags, and got some new fabric to make more!

  1. Dear Isabelle,

    Thank you for a lovely podcast – in spite of your strenuous schedule and tired voice. I wanted to share the soothing properties of licorice with you, for the throat. I know you love tea. 🙂 It makes a wonderfully soothing tea for the throat. There is also ginger-honey-lemon tea….

    Beautiful and inspiring podcast! Again, thank you!

  2. I'm so happy to know you appreciate the fiber I sent for Christmas 🙂

    One tip to reinforce immune defenses is to have a teaspoon of cinnamon everyday (you can add it in a yoghourt for instance). I do it everyday since 2 or 3 years now and the last time I had a cold was about 3 years ago 😉
