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. […]

Those samples won’t make it to the “101 crochet one skein projects”… and new sizes for the Roselette

Posted: Thursday, October 27th, 2011 @ 11:02 am in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, FO | No Comments »

This morning’s mail brought back 2 of the 3 samples I submitted for the book “101 crochet one skein projects”. No big surprise, they rejected the two patterns which are already published (Disco beret and carrŕ© potholder). I made them with different color schemes and yarns, and added a pretty flower to the beret but […]

Of chaperons and liripipes… Introducing my Jehanne hooded cardigan

Posted: Saturday, September 24th, 2011 @ 8:54 am in Crochet, FO, Published | 1 Comment »

Thanks to the very helpful feedback and edits of Krysten TenDyke, great feedback on my questions on Ravelry… and after another quick triple-check of the sizing on another cardigan (that’s how it always works, start a new project to validate the former one, right ? ;-) I’m now VERY happy to introduce the long-awaited pattern […]

I made a spindle.. and it spins great !

Posted: Friday, July 22nd, 2011 @ 10:03 am in FO, spinning | No Comments »

I have plans to start local workshops teaching people how to spin yarn on a spindle. On top of finding a place to do that, I also wondered how to allow people to leave with a spindle (not so easy to find in local shops… ) Yesterday night I experimented and made a spindle with […]

Old t-shirt becomes new funky nightgown

Posted: Monday, May 16th, 2011 @ 9:57 am in FO, recycle !, Sewing | No Comments »

This t-shirt, in size 3 yo, used to be one of the top favorites in our household. Matryoshkas, and a pretty lime color with a glimpse of red, what’s not to love ?!!! It’s becoming really short for my second daughter though, and I tried to take it out of her drawers. Several times she […]

Granny square slouchy hat, sewing and more matryoshkas !

Posted: Friday, January 28th, 2011 @ 5:12 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, FO, matryoshka, Sewing | 1 Comment »

It’s freezing cold these days (yet still no snow at all!) and a little walk with my SIL was a good occasion to snap some pics of my new hat this week-end: My Girouette slouchy hat looked very pretty on her. The pattern is in the final testing phase, then I’ll add it to the […]

Never thought I’d like it slouchy

Posted: Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010 @ 4:59 pm in Crochet, FO, Sewing | 1 Comment »

Slouchy hats have blossomed everywhere lately, and I always thought Bah, not for me. Then my sil asked if I could make her one. Of course, I love hints on what they’d like for Xmas. :-) During our little shopping outing earlier this week, I saw a Phildar store in Grand’Place, and of course “had […]

My 24-hours Camelia purse

Posted: Sunday, November 21st, 2010 @ 9:28 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Contest, Crochet, FO | No Comments »

We had a week-end with all the cousins and my grandmother this week-end, and suddenly my grandma realised the loto at her residence is on tuesday. She’s meant to give a few things there, and weeks ago I said I’d make her a Camelia purse. Oops. I started working on this yesterday at around 3 […]

Camelia purse and makeup bag

Posted: Tuesday, August 17th, 2010 @ 2:43 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, FO, Sewing | No Comments »

I finally sewed the handles on my new Camelia purse this morning. Woohoo, that’s how long it took me… :-P But it’s summer and there are so many other things to do outside. We had talks with laurent about calling it the boobs/hawaian-bikini bag, ..but I thought Camelia may sound better ;-) The pattern is […]

Finished skirt

Posted: Monday, July 26th, 2010 @ 8:54 pm in FO, Sewing | No Comments »

I finished my skirt today ! I basically cut the original waist band, and replaced it by a more “funky” one. After finishing it, I was afraid it made too many dots altogether (I kind of grabbed this purple fabric at random, just looking at the colors). But from looking at the pictures tonight, it […]
