Sewing pretty skirts for my nieces

Posted: Tuesday, May 29th, 2012 @ 3:57 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Family, matryoshka, Sewing | No Comments »

Have you entered my contest to win the sewing book I translated yet ?!!! My nieces from Reunion island came for a visit, and their mum said she “really liked my daughter’s skirts“. She’s also the one I made that bag for, which she really seems to love (and apparently got tons of compliments on), […]

Dreams of iceland and willow squares

Posted: Wednesday, April 11th, 2012 @ 11:55 am in Crochet, Family | No Comments »

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 “Bergŕ¨re de France” to […]

Happy new year !

Well the festivities have come and gone now, and I hope it all went well in your home ! It certainly did here, and we valued every minute of it seing all the health issues our family had to deal with in 2011. Things are looking good for the new year though, so let’s hope […]

A castle for the princess

Posted: Wednesday, November 30th, 2011 @ 4:51 pm in Family, kids craft, Sewing | 1 Comment »

This morning, the girls were trying to find an occupation, and decided they wanted to “sew a princess”. I said fine, start with making your pattern/template then (which let me enough time to finish breakfast). The princess first had no feet, and then had 4. A family of bugs it would be then :-) A […]

Finished Roselettes… and end of holidays

Posted: Thursday, November 3rd, 2011 @ 11:38 am in Crochet, Family, FO | 1 Comment »

Today the girls are back to school, and my older daughter’s best friend is back home, after spending four days with us. Her mum also happens to be one of my best friend, which means we had a great time. The girls played on tons, we chatted like crazy, and sewed and crocheted together. Bliss. […]

Embroidery samples on my supermatic

Posted: Saturday, October 8th, 2011 @ 7:50 am in Family, Sewing | No Comments »

My grand-mother passed away earlier this year, and my mum and aunts decided to give me her former sewing machine, an elna “supermatic”. It’s probably over 50 years old, but she so took such great care of it that it’s still in great shape. I found on Ebay a set of extra cams, and now […]

Holidays, baby crocheted bolero and spinning yarn like the romans

Posted: Monday, August 22nd, 2011 @ 5:35 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, Family, french, spinning, vintage | No Comments »

We just got back from 2 weeks away: went to the beach, jumped in the swimming-pool, ate tons of ice-cream to keep us cool… I managed to finish in time a third design to submit for that “One skein” crochet book. This one is for a cute little baby bolero, which I will probably also […]

My 5-year old made a mermaid costume for her Barbie doll – free sewing pattern

Posted: Sunday, August 7th, 2011 @ 8:50 am in Family, Freebie, kids craft, Sewing | 2 Comments »

So my younger daughter – she just turned 5 this summer – really wanted a mermaid Barbie doll. Why buy it when we can make it ? I found this beautiful shiny silver fabric in an op shop lately, perfect for a mermaid !! She also wanted to work on a crafting project, and do […]

The best ice-cream in the world … home-made in 5 minutes !

Posted: Thursday, July 21st, 2011 @ 4:57 pm in Family, french, recipe | 1 Comment »

I have fond memories of making banana ice-cream with my younger brother when we were kids. It was so yummy !! But a bit annoying to keep turning the ice-cream in order to avoid the flaky texture. I found this recipe in a magazine the other day, and couldn’t believe it was so simple. I […]

Crocheted summer hat and potholders

Posted: Thursday, June 16th, 2011 @ 2:36 pm in Crochet, Family | No Comments »

We’re just coming back from 5 days on the french Riviera (or nearly). It was warm, the flowers and herbs smelled beautifully as always, and the cicadas sang their lovely summery song. On the local market, I found this awesome hat. “It’s hand-crocheted” the lady said. Of course I knew, it was actually the reason […]
