Back to Blogging/ De retour au blog

A selection of fabrics I dyed

After a long break I have decided to get back to the blog. Rather than tell you what has happened over the last few months I’ll go straight to the latest news.

Après plusieurs mois d’inaction j’ai décide de continue avec mon blog. Je commence avec la dernière actualité.

I’m really excited to have my first ever article published. It is in the latest edition of the French magazine Création Patchwork.

Je suis super content car mon premier article est publié dans la dernier Création Patchwork.

There are two parts to the article. The first is a basic how to on dyeing fabric with procion dyes. The second part is a plaid to make using the fabric dyed in part one. The plaid is a basic 9 patch star but with 3D features.

En fin il y a deux parties. Le premier est comment teintez vos tissus avec le teintures procion et le deuxième est le réalisation du plaid avec les étoiles en 3D.

On another note here are two photos from my sewing room window. One in October and the other today. Sorry the one from today isn’t very clear but we’ve had nothing but low grey skies for the last couple of weeks so took what I could in a clear patch. Heavy grey clouds are back.
October 2009

Pour changer le sujet, 2 photos pris de mon bureau/atelier. 1 d’octobre et l’autre aujourd’hui. Nous avons eu des jours de mauvais temps donc le deuxième était pris pendant uns bref moment d’éclaircie. Les nuages menacent sont déjà de retour.

Congratulations on being published, that's a big achievement. Is the magazine published in English by any chance. I wonder.
Happy new Year as well.
