WIP kitsch

Little kitscherie for Lila which I unfortunately could not finish as I am going on holidays tomorrow. So there is the unfinished version! This sample is an attempt at layered applique which I have learned in a very fun lesson I have been attending tonight. Petite kitsherie pour Lila malheureusement pas fine et comme je pars en vacance demain je vous met la version pas finie! Ce petit bout est une tentative d'applique en couche un truc appris dans un petit cours auquel je vais qui est bien sympa.

Love that kid

I could play it mysterious, use carefully chosen words but I am not good at that. No, the real problem is that (sorry I am translating here a French expression) I have my arse between two chairs. I know it is not very elegant but blow me it sums up the situation very well! So as a result the creation side of things is a bit slow but then again, I can't say my time is used up in a very constructive way instead. So, as a way around it I am showing you the fate of any shoe box that would dare entering our house.Je pourrais vous la jouer... [Lire la suite]

* Work in progress whilst watching TV Am inprotante question: What do you do whilst watching TV in the evening (and I am not talking about naughty things!)? I personnaly cut skulls and crossbones. Une question importante: Que faites vous quand vous regardez la télé le soir (et je parle pas de trucs cochons!)?Alors moi personnellement je coupe des tètes de mort. And when I am bored with that, I knit. It is as you might have suspected impossible for me to just watch TV. What about you? Et quand je me lasse des tètes de... [Lire la suite]

After months and months of drooling over Etsy, studying the way it works, making a few purchases.... it was time I had a go myself! So here it is, my very own Etsy shop! It is very easy to use, you just need a Paypal account (it's free to set up). Then all the prices are in dollars but it converts automatically on your credit card. Do you think I have sold it to you all right?!!! And this is selection you can find in it at the moment:Après des mois et des mois passes a baver sur les jolies choses vendues sur Etsy, des mois a étudier... [Lire la suite]

Feeling green

I have been busy moving my sewing stuff to the spare room after 3 years in a corner of the living room. Well it started in the corner but quite quickly I was spreading everywhere.... and it wasn't possible anymore. I will take some photos but as usual I did things the wrong way around i.e. moving my stuff before painting (it is magnolia at the moment, not us, the previous owners!). So it needs painting, a roman blind for the window, a nice light, pretty pictures on the walls.... Well you get the picture. Should be my July project when... [Lire la suite]
