Last week, during the middle of the night, I heard some soft rustlings. Figuring it was the wind, I rolled over and went back to sleep. The next morning, I went into my craft room to grab something, and was surprised to see someone had moved in!





Her name is Fanny, and apparently she is a nut for fiber.

Here she is curled up in a cozy fiber nest.


Hanging out with some bobbins.


Mostly though, she likes to hang out on the top shelf were she can survey the whole room. From her perch she enjoys dictating what colors and fibers I put into the blends I am making. She especially loves to critique my spinning. If she were bigger, she'd probably try to take over the spinning herself!


(Fanny was made from a Gingermelon pattern on Etsy.)
