“Ma petite robe noire”, the sewing book I translated: Win a copy!

Posted: Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012 @ 4:02 pm in book review, Freebie, french, review, Sewing, translation | 5 Comments »

Last summer I was busy translating my first book ever (I’ll admit it was a bit scary… but so exciting!), the famous “The little black dress” by Simon Henry. And now the french version I worked on is finally released: I received 2 copies from the editor this morning and am glad to offer one […]

Thoughts on advertising on Ravelry, Crafster or Etsy…

Posted: Friday, October 16th, 2009 @ 2:35 pm in chezPlum Patterns, links, review | 1 Comment »

So my “featured pattern” thing on Ravelry is now over. I thought it might be a good occasion to share a few thoughts on results I got from advertising spots on different sites such as Ravelry, Etsy or Crafster. We’d all love to advertise for our indie business, but it’s sometimes hard to know what […]

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 […]

Ugly little mitt, lots of snow and more fiber on the Hackle

Publishing 2 posts today but I’d just rather make the most of the free time ahead for once, with both girls asleep and hopefully recovering from the cold and ear infection they caught last week. They’ve had plenty of time inside and rest but I guess they’re just tired of this first trimester of school/daycare… […]

Playing with the Hackle, day 2

Posted: Wednesday, December 10th, 2008 @ 4:05 pm in dyed, Fiber Prep, Hackle, review, spinning | 1 Comment »

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 […]

My new Hackle !!

I first met Laurel through Ravelry in the Fiber Swap Club. She’s the one who sent me the beautiful Merino roving I used for my mini-shawl. She’s lucky to have a very crafty husband who makes all sorts of tools, including hackles which Laurel sells in her Etsy store on top of her fiber goodies. […]

My Mother Marion kick-spindle : a quick review

Posted: Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008 @ 3:34 pm in Knitting, review, spinning | 4 Comments »

I wanted to make a review of my new Mother Marion kick-spindle for a bit, as I used to look up every source of info when wondering whether I’d buy it or not… Today I took the time for a quick video today while the girls were sleeping (or pretending to : Prune opened the […]
