Knits and wips, and “Spin off” fall 2010

Posted: Tuesday, September 28th, 2010 @ 10:14 am in Crochet, Knitting | 1 Comment »

I have a favor to ask: could someone help me get a copy of the current issue of “Spin Off” (fall 2010) ? There are several features I’d love to read (natural dyes, and articles by Jacey Boggs..) but it’s impossible to find it here in France. I’ll reimburse you all costs of course ! […]

More vintage french spindles…

Posted: Saturday, September 25th, 2010 @ 8:47 pm in Etsy, Knitting | No Comments »

Pushed by a customer, I have finally listed more vintage french spindles on Etsy today. Speaking of Etsy. I started a second shop to separate the DIY items (patterns, spindles, fiber…) from the items that are ready to purchase. My new store is called ChezPlum Things. For the moment I have mostly relisted items which […]

This morning’s crafting with the girls

Posted: Saturday, September 18th, 2010 @ 12:25 pm in Family, kids craft, Sewing | No Comments »

Plume is going to a birthday this afternoon. We decided we would sew her friend a little book cover with felt. Then the little sister wanted to sew as well, and it was a good occasion. I made her sew a wing on a little felt bird (her first ever sewing !) and she managed […]

Matryoschka love

Nothing like a few matryoshkas to brighten up an otherwise plain bag.. Plume needed a bag for her gym shoes. I also made one for Nell so she’d have a pretty one for her school things just like her big sister… :-) The second one (brown & pink) totally looked like a skirt until the […]

New update for the Ebook

Working on patterns always takes time. Working on an Ebook takes even MORE time ! But I worked on it again yesterday night and released a new version, with a new cover which looks way better to me ! :-P I have added the pattern for the Camelia purse in the “Around the granny square” […]

Hurrah !

Thanks to this article, I finally took the time to read the notice of my camera, to learn how to use the Macro mode. I think I got it this time.. Oh the possibilities ! :-D (the little pot was made by the girls during a pottery afternoon)

End of holidays, beginning of a new school year

Posted: Saturday, September 4th, 2010 @ 4:50 pm in Crochet, Family, french, Sewing | 1 Comment »

Summer holidays have come and gone, we had a lovely time in the south of France, rested, swam, spent time with friends… I crocheted lots of granny squares as samples for my “Around the granny square” ebook. And would have finished my second Camelia purse but for missing yarn. Then this week was the “Rentrŕ©e”: […]
