10 years

It had to happen one day...Today I have been married 10 years. We've had a great day: Day trip to Brighton (because we LOVE Brighton followed by....watching the rugby in the pub (!). Well, we lost but what a great atmosphere. So just for a laugh, I'll show you a few photos of our wedding. Just so you know, there was just us at our wedding (you see although I'm not shy there was NO way I could get married in front of people I knew...)So the photos were just us, the camera, the tripod and the self timer...fun. And because I can feel... [Lire la suite]

Well, as you can see I over did it again... Well, cutting towelling material is so messy (of course that was the day I decided to wear my brand new black linen trousers....they haven't recovered yet!) that I thought I might as well cut the whole lot and be done with it. These are for my coming sales. Je crois que j'en ai encore fait un peu trop...Mon excuse c'est que couper du tissu eponge c'est tellement le basard (evidement c'est le jour ou je decide de mettre mon nouveau pantalon en lin noir...il s'enai pas encore remi!) et...

Did you notice my new banner. The previous one had been lovingly done by my 7 year old who knows more about computing than me. Well, could I do it on my own? NO. And. this. really. annoys. me. All over the blogosphere I see amasing banners and photo montage and I don't know how to do it. AAARRRGGGHHH. I know I should learn Photoshop or something like that but:1-I don't have the time and 2-I can't even get my head around Picassa so what's the hope? Anyway, I (ok it's my husband) did a little mosdest montage with a placemat that this... [Lire la suite]

Meme pas peur

So, lots of you sew with Japanese books and I was getting increasingly jealous. Me too, me too I want to have ago. So I got myself a book, panicked slightly at the sight, took a deep breath and I started cutting. To avoid wastage of a good fabric in case of a big mistake (euh Liberty for example...) I did my first tunique with a cheap fabric and child size. And well, I am quite pleased with the results. Obviously there is room for improvement but it's wearable! Just need to convince my daughter to wear it. So I can't wait to make... [Lire la suite]

Name cushion

Another name cushion on its way to France. This one was an order from a french friend here. Did I tell you that the town where I live is full of French? Well it's good for my French but not my kids' as all the children talk together in English. ARRGGHH. You will quickly get bored of these cushions but I am afraid there are more to come. Un autre coussin nom qui va aller en France. C'est un ecommande d'une amie francaise ici. Et oui, il a plein de francais ou j'habite. C'est bon pour mon francais mais ca marche pas avec les enfants... [Lire la suite]

Accro a la toile ciree

I have been working I have. I LOVE oilcloth. And with all the left overs from the bags that I have been making, I made lots of makeup cases (or for whatever use you want). They all lined (Yes, we like to please our demanding customers...!) and I have use this tuto for the uderstanding of the constrution (yes I am a bit simple so I need all the help I can get). The pattern is my own. J'ai bosse si, si. J'ADORE la toile ciree. Et avec tous les chutes de mes sacs, j'ai fait plein de petites trousses a maquillage (ou tout autre usage).... [Lire la suite]

Be honest

I have been writing this blog for a while now. I have been writing in French and English hoping that I would get readers from different countries. Now, in the eight odd months that I have doing this blog, I have only ever had 3 (!) comments in English. Writing in two languages takes time and effort (especially effort for my slow working brain!) Therefore, this is the question I am asking: Is there anyone out there who reads me in English???? If so, please let me know and then I'll carry on with the English. If not, I'll consider only...
