2016 Xmas presents

Posted: Saturday, December 31st, 2016 @ 8:14 am in Crochet, Family | No Comments »

This year I crocheted colorful hats with pompons for my brother & his family who live on a warm island and are not usually equiped for our chilly winters… & then I made more hats for the local family too, so there would be no one left out :-) Btw, this orange hat I made for […]

Bertille boleros for the girls

Posted: Wednesday, March 9th, 2016 @ 3:38 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, Family, FO | No Comments »

My daughters have been relentlessly asking for summer boleros with long elf hoods… Now they each have their own Bertille bolero !! (but dumb me: I can’t find my own now, so no group photo !) For the younger one I aimed at making a size 10 yo with fewer body sts and a shorter […]

Now she has her own sewing machine…

My older daughter will turn 11 this summer, but she’s turning into a craft addict. Or rather, a sewing addict. Lately she’s been asking more and more to use my sewing machine… leaving tons of bits and pieces in my office (hand-drawn “patterns”, remainings of fleece and fabrics…) to make clothes for her dolls or […]

Sewing for me and her…

Posted: Tuesday, November 18th, 2014 @ 1:19 pm in Family, Sewing | No Comments »

Last week-end was all about rain and crappy weather. To try and keep the girls happy, I suggested we do some sewing together… My older daughter kept herself busy making a cardboard doll house for her sister’s Barbies, and sewing barbie clothes on her own (10 year old and she can now nearly handle the […]

A slow summer

This summer has been very special. My bestest happiest craftiest friend Sophie, who battled Cancer for the last 3 years and a half, passed away. At the very end of june, when it became obvious this wasn’t going to be just another of the frequent trips back and forth to hospital ( & because I […]

Happy new year, and best wishes to you !! I hope you’ll have a healthy and creative year !! This year I made the presents for my daughters. Can’t say I was very organised though. Because of the Xmas markets and all the preparations ahead, it only occured to me 2 days prior to the […]

News, knitting and Xmas markets

Sorry for the seemingly abandonned blog, I seem to be writing more in my french blog now as most of my recent news are more local… no new pattern release yet (even though several only need a final polish !), so busy on other things ! In september my husband and a friend threw a […]

It was summer…

Posted: Monday, September 2nd, 2013 @ 8:24 am in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, Family | No Comments »

Summer was good. We tried to relax and enjoy the warm weather, spent quality time with family and friends. The girls made new friends, spent time with old but faraway friends, spent hours in the sea or the swimming pool. They are such sweet girls. I started a new project for my niece. Using a […]

Pretty leather projects, perfect for Birthdays !

Posted: Monday, July 8th, 2013 @ 12:03 pm in Crochet, Family, kids craft, Leather, Sewing, workshop | 2 Comments »

June is the month of birthdays around here. Birthday parties for both my daughters.. which means parties to organise, and activities to think of. This year I decided to offer mini-workshops for my daughter’s guests. I wanted to make something quick and pretty with leather, using not too much material and easy to make for […]

The most amazing crafting-holidays ever

Posted: Friday, November 9th, 2012 @ 6:02 pm in Family, Felting, Leather, Sewing | No Comments »

We had the best time this week: Four days in a chalet, with tons of craft supplies, and awesome girl-friends. There was felted soaps, leather bags and pouches, polymer clay, clothes customized and buttons felted… Sophie made a pretty pouch for her cell phone, and my older daughter drew the template for this awesome coin […]
