Purple, pink, chartreuse, plum and olive…

Beautiful yarn in my favorite color combo, bought on a textile market here in Vercors last week-end. The lady I bought it from dyed it herself and I couldn’t resist. She had all sorts of fibers, from pure wool to mohair or bouclŕ© yarns, I chose the wool and linen blend. So far I’m thinking […]

Finished skirt

Posted: Monday, July 26th, 2010 @ 8:54 pm in FO, Sewing | No Comments »

I finished my skirt today ! I basically cut the original waist band, and replaced it by a more “funky” one. After finishing it, I was afraid it made too many dots altogether (I kind of grabbed this purple fabric at random, just looking at the colors). But from looking at the pictures tonight, it […]

Have you seen me ? I’m on the Etsy blog !! :-D .. well, the french Etsy blog, but still that’s nice, especially when seing the other talented ladies also giving their tips on how to sell on Etsy. I’ve been crocheting some, working on a new little purse with my flower granny square. I […]

Second dress, this time in the right size

Posted: Wednesday, July 14th, 2010 @ 9:45 pm in FO, Sewing | 2 Comments »

I couldn’t resist. This morning I started a second Popover sundress, this time in size 6. :-) It was quick, now that the pattern was all printed and cut. Didn’t make any of the mistakes I made on the first one either, so the straps are the right length… And following DH’s suggestion, I added […]

This is kind of old news, but 1,000 Fabulous Knit Hats by Annie Modesitt is now apparently available for purchase, even in brick and mortars stores !!! I haven’t received my contributor copy yet, but you should see my Altay hat in it, along with the instructions to make your own. Also, there should be […]

Summer fun

Posted: Monday, July 12th, 2010 @ 9:09 pm in Family, Sewing | No Comments »

Summer is finally here, and we are enjoying it very much. Spending as much time as we can outside, often at the chalet… which will explain the lack of blogging. :-) I never thought I’d enjoy gardening so much and our little “experimental” garden (our first ever trial) is growing quite well. We already ate […]
