Waiting for the sun…

As I make several projects at the same time, I try to share my energy and if I’m doing something that requires all my attention, the other one it might be something relaxed… 

Meanwhile I was working in my handwoven scarf, I decided to make a poncho, very fun in colours and in the process. It’s simply knitted but all the fun is in colours combinations…

The material I used was pure cotton in a pale green and I combined it with lilac ribbon and a crazy and very colorful yarn, that goes really nice with the two others…

Unisex scarf!!

I’m so delighted with the loom! I think my corcheting and knitting staff are going to be delayed a little bit!!
To make this scarf I started with a difficult task, using very fine silk and wool threads I bought from a site in UK and I took the risk but the results were more than I expected…
A very good gift either for men or women!scarf

Treasuries in Etsy

As some people know, I have an Etsy shop I’ve set up some years ago, but recently I’ve  seriously  started trying to push my  sells  … One of the most important things I’ve learnt is to participate actively in all the promotion process, so one of my suggestions is to sign up in the groups you think are representative for you.

As an example I’m actually in Etsy in Spanish (my mother tongue), Etsy Fast (fiber arts) and European Etsy teams (I live in Paris)…so, these are so far the ones I have chosen but I’ll continue searching for other opportunities…

One of the Etsy in Spanish’s conditions is to make a “Treasury” from the members of the group, so I’ve chosen as favorites most of the ones I like and I’m waiting to properly publish it, which is kind of a “mission impossible” because the section “Treasury” is always packed. 

Amazingly I found myself  in one of them, and I was absoultely delighted to see one of my products in there, it’s a pitty that this poncho I’ve sold it in another website, but at least is good for promotion, contacts and future results… isn’t it?

  • Geometry
    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
