Five on Friday – new link party!

There’s a new link party happening that I’ve just discovered via The Soaring Sheep! This is hosted on Love Made My Home, and the premise is that you talk about five things. I’m going to find it hard to pick just five! But I thought I’d give it a go, because it’s fun to review stuff.

1. Unravel

Top of my list for this week – and probably the rest of the month – is how great Unravel was. I had so much fun, loved the experience, adore my new stash…I can’t wait to go back next year.

2. Sincerely Louise

I made myself a Sincerely Louise bear, who is currently hanging on our wall and has been named Björn. He makes me smile every time I walk past him! Louise donated a kit to me to give to one of my lucky readers…you can enter here!

3. Being reunited with this girl

Tonks spent ten days with my brother, destroyed all of his bedding, alienated all of his flatmates and stank the place out. Isn’t she charming?! But I have been so happy to have been reunited with her, you never realise how much you miss your kitty until you are back together. Even if she did destroy a ball of yarn last night.

4. Needle-felting

I bought a Jenny Barnett kit at Unravel, and I’m loving this new form of fibre craft. I’ve tried it before, but never like this. It’s fantastic, I’m addicted!

5. New spinning equipment

I have some new equipment that I’m using joyfully! A smaller niddy-noddy for the samples I’m spinning up, a book on new techniques, a smaller set of hand-carders. It’s lovely to feel like I’m being a bit delicate, instead of attacking everything with gigantic paddles for hands.

If you’d like to see what other people are choosing as their five things, head over here. I have several finished objects to show you, I’m feeling super productive at the moment and big things are happening at Plutonium Muffins HQ, which you’ll find out about soon!

Much love,

Corrie xx
