  • Done. The weaving begun as a simple experiment. It will now stay forever as the witness and the help in hard times. My lines are not very smooth, and I could have worked more on the design, but it was just an enlarged doodle, an exercice with some technical goals. I reached some of the…

  • Since I discovered Silvia Heyden (have a look there: https://vimeo.com/25136243), I wanted to give a try at wedge weave. To be honest, I tried, and failed. I tried again this week ( you know the proverb), and wove two different little things. One quite ugly, red and beige, on wool warp, but for the first…

  • Planning for Four People, I started a sample. I wanted to test the wool I had bought, to give a try to the triangles for my frame, to see how colors matched together. Then, I tried a Rebecca Mezoff exercise about hills and valley turns for smooth lines. Finally, I wove the first three-ply wool…

  • The last one

    I’m quite struggling with this one, and I don’t know how I will finish him/her. Light or dark blue? And I’m awfully sure the triangles of both sides won’t match. To each day its burden, we’ll see. C’est le dernier des 4, et je coince un peu pour le/la finir. Bleu foncé ou bleu clair?…

Jon and Celina are weaving tapestry, Françoise and Claudine are reinventing their gardens, Manuèle is drawing, Olivier is creating a digital choir. To all all them, even to those who are not makers, thanks for being there. La bise à tous mes amis, ceux qui jardinent,…

  • Turkish kilim

    If it didn’t have a hole in it, I wouldn’t be able to be the owner of this gorgeous kilim. Look at the perfect intrication of the two patterns, look at the incredible colors and proportions. S’il n’était pas troué, je n’aurais jamais eu les moyens d’acheter ce fabuleux kilim. Regardez la manière dont les…

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.
