Another part of me

  • Anita 1 and 2, and soon 3

    I’m sampling for a bigger piece that I hopefully weave in the year to come. They were done on my Mirrix, and I’m currently working on the third one on my big Leclerc loom. Je fais des études pour une grande tapisserie, que j’espère tisser dans l’année à venir. Elles ont été faites sur mon … Continue reading Anita 1 and 2, and soon 3

  • Snoopy

    I have a new padawan, Frédérique, and like the others she is very talented. Her first tapestry was a little house, the second one is a Snoopy, as a gift to someone close to her. Her weavings are neat and precise, with a great sense of color. Welcome to the tapestry world, and bravo. J’ai … Continue reading Snoopy

  • Slowing down

    As you have already noticed, I don’t post every week anymore. Beginning today, I will commit to one post a month. I don’t want constraints anymore, especially self inflicted ones. Today, just a picture of my tidy studio ( in fact half of my living room), with a huge space made for my new Leclerc … Continue reading Slowing down

  • I spent the last weeks weaving little squares. They are meant as gifts for those of my friends who helped me settle and feel good in my new home. The weft is lichen dyed wool, except for some lines of each person prefered colors. You won’t see them here, except for this one which didn’t … Continue reading Friends and lichens

  • Rearview/ Rétroviseur

    This tapestry comes from a vision I had in my rearview a few months ago, while driving back home. I realize that this title may also illustrate my current situation, newly retired and looking back at my achievements. Anyway, this moment was weird and beautiful in the sunset, and I decided to weave a tapestry … Continue reading Rearview/ Rétroviseur

  • Doing or succeeding?

    What did I do this week? Many things, but some of them were a failure. But I did spend time with them, so I will give them a little place here. Qu’est ce que j’ai fait cette semaine ? Pas mal de choses, même si plusieurs sont ratées. Mais comme j’y ai passé du temps, … Continue reading Doing or succeeding?

  • This week, we (Celina, Olivier and I) were busy dyeing with lichens. I had the idea in mind, don’t remember why, and I found a dead branch on the ground. That was the beginning, we began to look, and to see lichens everywhere. We mainly collected dead branches, and were surprised to discover that one … Continue reading Dyeing with lichens

  • Sampling Rearview

    I want to give a rendition of a vision I had some time ago in my rearview, with beautiful blacks, beautiful night sky and red No entry signs. Here are two samples, one woven on the side, both from the front, at 12 epi. I’m going to make another simple, at a bigger sett, and … Continue reading Sampling Rearview

Here is my new studio (it will have to share the room with the movie place) , less space and light than the previous one, but very quiet and … Continue reading My new work place

Life is short, we’re getting older” (Fred Astaire), and before it’s too late, I want to reconnect with what I always liked, and wanted to study and share: making textiles, textures and jewels. So here I am, and this blog will be a piece of the sharing part. I will try to post weekly, on what I do, but also on textiles I love, blogs I discover, books I read.

I bet I will struggle with technology, (it’s my first blog) and with English, which is not my mother tongue. I made the choice of English because the online weaving community is mostly English speaking .

Et pour vous, mes amis français, un résumé de tout ça : la vie est courte, et il y a des tas de choses que j’ai envie de faire et de partager, alors je me lance dans ce blog, on verra bien.
