More natural dying experiments: dandelion, red cabbage and grape-juice

Posted: Friday, April 17th, 2009 @ 7:41 pm in Crochet, dyed, Etsy, Family, Fiber Prep, Hackle, natural dying | 2 Comments »

Yesterday I had a very nice afternoon. After a visit from my friend Emily, Laurent took the girls out for a bike ride and I had the flat all to myself and cooked. So enjoyable ! Because our place is so small, the girls are usually always running around me whenever I try to cook.. […]

A whole new world

Material Whirled is having a Valentine yarn Giveaway. You gotta have a look there, first maybe to try to win the yummy skein of handspun, but most of all, to read all the fantastic quotes in the comments. (and another cool contest here, to win a beautiful nacho nuno-felted poncho) I have finally finished working […]

Tv or sleep ? – Spoiled !

Posted: Thursday, January 15th, 2009 @ 7:32 pm in Crochet, dyed, Fiber Prep, Hackle, pattern testers | 2 Comments »

Laurent and I used to sleep really bad, waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to sleep again until several hours later. Living in a really small place, we sleep in the living-room, so we first started with shutting down all the computers, servers and dsl lines during the night. […]

Fiber experiments and Giveaway winners

Lots of fiber dying experiments last week. Not all were conclusive though… My conclusions for next time: – nope, dying a white batt of Cormo is not a good idea. Unless you want to learn wet felting.. It does make a beautiful scarf though, and I may still try to spin it. And colors look […]

Playing with the Hackle, day 2

As Promised, here’s the sequel of my first tries with my new toy, the great Hackle from Laurel, aka CatskillMtnFibers on Etsy. This time I prepared some fiber in advance, and dyed some cormo (which Laurel had also so graciously sent along with the hackle) and fine Merino in a deep burgundy color. I also […]

A little thought for him… and more fiber

Please have a thought this morning for laurent, my husband, who is being operated on. Nothing major, but a very delicate operation on his lower jaw that requires a complete anesthesia.. and I’m just a bit worried about that. ETA: Thanks for the kind comments, he’s fine (even though tired and angry because the operation […]

Hi, I’m back.. actually we came back a few days ago already but life if busy these days ! We had a great time with our kiwi friends and ended up staying all week in my grandmother’s chalet: the cold air helped a lot with laurent’s headaches, which was good ! The car nearly broke […]

Surprise for the 200th !!

This is what I call summer: after a good swim in the lake this morning, generous fruit smoothie and an ice cream cone for the afternoon snack.. Life is good ! :-D Wow, it took me over a year and a half to sell my first 100 items on Etsy, and only 6 months for […]
