Welcome to my website

Hello, I’m Fiona O’Driscoll, and this is my website. My knitted creations celebrate the natural world, the warmth of childhood and the wonderful variety of colours and textures available to me. I always use freshly washed natural fleeces from a local organic sheep farm to stuff the knitted animals as the environment and sustainability are very important to me.

I live in Leitrim in the hidden heartlands of Ireland . I am surrounded by natural bogland and woods and my garden is regularly visited by wild animals. The badgers, hedgehogs, mice, pine martins, foxes, shrews, rabbits,hares and many birds that pass through give me inspiration for the animals I create. As I create each piece by hand they have their own unique personality and I am always changing my range to keep collectors interested and to stay fresh.

I sell my work directly, just contact me by email sundew37@gmail.com. My work is perfect for posting, unbreakable, light and no best before date! I also supply a few wonderful shops, Strokestown Park, http://www.strokestownpark.ie/, Beech hill garden centre in Cork and the Leitrim Design House https://leitrimdesignhouse.ie/ in Carrick on Shannon . I enjoy craft fairs too and sometimes share a stand with my very talented brother Niall Miller of Fuinseog Woodland Crafts.
