Their first ever crocheted garment.. fantastic workshop !

Posted: Monday, June 17th, 2013 @ 3:35 pm in Crochet, dolls clothes, french, Vercors, workshop | 3 Comments »

A couple months ago, I taught a few local ladies to crochet. But in a couple hours, we only had enough time to explore the most basic stitches (chain, single and double crochet), and make a basic flower using only chains and sc (I had to design my own as I couldn’t find what I […]

Posted: Friday, November 30th, 2012 @ 4:03 pm in Crochet, Felting, french, Vercors, worshop | 2 Comments »

A few weeks ago, Cathe asked me to take part in a serie of interviews of french crochet designers for the french online Yarnzine “In the loop”, and today the article was published. Have a look ! Last week was my first ever “official felting workshop”. I had prepared some samples of felted purses and […]

Sewing in the attic

Posted: Wednesday, August 15th, 2012 @ 11:53 am in Etsy, french, Sewing, Vercors | 1 Comment »

Last week-end was a craft fair here in Lans. Never having too much to sell on such occasions (apart from some leftover felted soaps and kits), I decided to sew some skirts… and found a lovely sewing studio in the attic at my parent’s place : being able to leave all the fabric and sewing […]

More Roselette tops, and small sewing projects

Posted: Friday, October 21st, 2011 @ 11:17 am in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, Sewing, Vercors | 1 Comment »

Life is busy here, and at the end of the day, there’s not much time for crafting… and even less for blogging about it. Yet, I have been crocheting some to double-check the new sizes I am adding to the initial Roselette top pattern. It will now include sizes up to 10 yo.. so I […]

Another first : Xmas market

Posted: Saturday, December 18th, 2010 @ 5:05 pm in Crochet, french, Sewing, Vercors | 3 Comments »

Last sunday we had a table with my friend (she’s a photographer, come see one of her expos if you’re around !) at the local Xmas market. It was my first market ever, and slightly intimidating: I still don’t know that many people around but felt like a coming-out “Hello, I am a crafter!” ;-) […]

Snowing in Vercors

Posted: Friday, January 8th, 2010 @ 2:09 pm in Crochet, Family, Vercors | 3 Comments »

It’s snowing… Girls on their way to school this morning. It doesn’t show on those pics, but the snow is still falling. There’s always this kind of fear towards the end of a project. Probably fear that the finished piece will not look like planned, or that I might do the finishing wrong and ruin […]
