Happy easter ! The girls are with their grand-parents for a few days, and having a great time. :-)

Meanwhile, I can spend time with my husband, who’s been having health issues for over a year (adrenal fatigue, anyone ?).. and work.
There are translations. I’ve had the pleasure to add “Bergā¨re de France” to the list of my BIG customers (they’re one of the main yarn companies in France), as they now publish their designs in english as well in special booklets. Good to know, I’m sure ! :-)

Also sending vintage french lace motifs with home-made personalised letterpress since I’ve used up all my Moo cards… This cute matryochka stamp was cheap (bought on Etsy here), and I’ve been using it tons: it really ads to plain enveloppes or paper notes, and there’s my “ChezPlum” name on it!! .. it certainly says “handmade” ! :-)

I also wanted to take a break from designing or reworking my own patterns.
Been in “icelandic mood” lately, reading another Arnaldur Indridasson’s novel, playing with my skeins of Lett Lopi and perusing “Icelandic knitting” by Helā¨ne Magnusson (I am SO making the 4 flowerpot sweater sometime soon)… but even if it snowed about 1 cm last night, I’m afraid spring will be here before I finish an ambitious project. Ordering a kit for a purple “Olga” hoodie instead for the girls: I just need to feel that slightly rough nordic yarn between my fingers.

And started oversized “Willow” squares (we’re talking 8 mm hook (L) and double and triple strands of yarn) with a bag of yarn my mum gave me. I love that square, so graphic and perfect, and fun to make. Still not too sure what those will become: cardigan for me, sweaters for the girls… or just a pretty lap blanket (last option being the most probable seing the bright colors, not the ones we usually wear in this house).

How are your holidays ? :-)
