Baby clothes / Vêtements de bébé

Every time it's the same, when I'm pregnant I develop a sort of knitting fever!So after the socks I made for my daughter, the sweaters for my sister, and other things I will blog about shortly, I realized I was in the 6th month of my pregnancy which meant I could maybe start working on a baby kit. Here's the first thing I've made : (so very) small summer dungarees and socks to match.When I bought the yarn, I actually thought it was pearl grey. As it turns out, it's pale blue, which isnt' really unisex, and I don't know the sex of... [Lire la suite]

Socks! / Des chaussettes !

Just before Christmas, my good friend Elke gave my daughter a pair of bright red socks handknitted by her grandmother. Raphaelle LOVED them.

Happy New Sewing Year! / Bonne année de couture !

I'm definitely not going to list all the resolutions I should make, it's not my style. I prefer going through life not knowing what I'm going to do exactly, which doesn't prevent me from doing A LOT of stuff! My one and only goal for 2015 is to have a beautiful baby, and hopefuly, I'll be able to scratch that from my list by the beginning of May! Now let's get down to business, because I have quite a few items I've been dying to share with you but couldn't because they were Christmas or birthday presents and I wanted to keep them a...
