A bit about me

Just thought that it's time I told you a bit a bout me and my family. I am a bit of a glorified Brit. I am French and came to study in Wales many many years a go (well that's what it feels like anyway!) and..... I never went home. It's all because of this very cute Brit (and I thought there were all ugly...Oh I was wrong, very wrong)....And 2 kids later I am still here....Thing 1 and Thing 2 (if you read Dr Seuss, you'll understand) are the best things that happen to me like ever. Crafting for them and with them is so much fun. ... [Lire la suite]

Summer wardrobe

I have had this fabric for a while (Liberty?) and finally I got to cut into it. This little top is very probably to multiply! And I want the same one, but the adult patterns are rubbish! Oh and new shoes of course. Oh the spring is here..... J'avais ce tissu depuis un certain temps (Liberty?) et enfin j'ai pu le decouper. Ce petit haut va se multiplier je sens! Et je veux le meme mais les patrons adultes sont nuls! Oh et des nouvelles chaussures bien sur. Oh le printemps est la... Butterick B4176

Petit message

Putting a message on a bag has been an idea for a while but I did not have at the time suitable fabric and...time. However the post that Lola Addict wrote recently has put the idea back at the forefront of my mind. So this morning I got to work and this is what I have done. I hope you like it. I do. hum, I think there will be more one the theme coming... Mettre un message sur un sac etait une idee que j'avais depuis quelques temps mais je n'avais pas le tissu ideal ou ... le temps. Le post de Lola Addict m'a remis l'idee en tete.... [Lire la suite]

Peg Dolls

My kids had been doing them and some talented ladies of the blogosphere had been doing them too (Tree Fall and Angry Chicken have been at it too!) and that made me extremely envious. So, it was my turn, I wanted to play too. This is my version. Mes gamins en ont fait, des blogeuses avec beaucoup de talent en ont fait aussi (Tree Fall and Angry Chicken). Ca m'a rendu tres envieuse et moi aussi je voulais jouer. Voila ma version. Don't you like their dresses. Does this make you think of the towelling dresses once used on the... [Lire la suite]

Bibs and shoes

My friend is having a baby like right now, so I made her a bib and shoes, like you do. You can find the tutorial for the shoes at Stardustshoes . As for the bib, I simply copied the shape of one I already had. I promise, i'll post the pattern as soon as I work out Acrobat (it might be a while!) Une bonne copine attend son 3eme bebe pour toute suite, donc je lui ai fait un bavoir et des chaussons, normal. Le tutorial des chaussons est a Stardust shoes. Pour le bavoir, j'ai copie la forme sur un que j'avais deja. Des que je saurai... [Lire la suite]

No chocolate

I haven't been crafting very much for myself because I have been busy with orders (which is good, we like orders). So I am showing you a cushion made for Easter to offer a little boy who can't eat chocolate. I am not sure the cushion will make up for that! Je n'ai pas beaucoup bricole pour moi car j'ai quelques commandes a honore (ce qui est tres bien, on aime les commandes). Donc je vous montre un coussin fait pour Paques pour un petit garcon qui ne peut pas manger du chocolat. Je suis pas sure que le coussin compense pour le... [Lire la suite]

The bag that was in my head

Ages ago, there was this woman in the street with a fantastic bag. The picture of it has been stored somewhere in my head all that time, and FINALLY, today I got to make my version of what I saw. And for once, it turned out just about how I had pictured it! Which is a bit satisfying. Il y a longtemps, j'ai vu dans la rue une dame avec un super sac. Je l'ai photographie quelque part dans ma tete pendant tout ce temps et ENFIN, aujourd'hui, j'ai pu faire ma version. Et pour un fois, je suis assez contente du resultat..... ... [Lire la suite]

Little project

Do you know what, I was sitting having dinner and thinking of the post that I would write tonight, and it very witty and funny... Then, I sit in front of the computer and blank... Can't remember my funny post. How annoying, it's always like that, I write beautiful, touching, funny letters to loved ones .... in my head! At this point please don't be alarmed, I am quite normal, well, as normal can be, I just can't write to save my life ... on paper or on a screen. Anyway, this was my Sunday lunch today... Lovely Sunday spread... [Lire la suite]
