Bilan 2009 and my first SWAP!

Yes! I have made my first SWAP…. with the really nice Lidia of parisbyknit that I have met thanks to ALM. She wanted my Margarita clutch and I absolutely fell in love with their mittens!

The experience was fantastic not only because we have loved the interchange but because is great to meet someone who doesn’t get bored speaking about wool, for example.

Enjoy their mittens and visit her lovely shop!

Et oui, j’ai fait mon premier SWAP… avec une très sympa vendeuse de ALM… Lidia de parisbyknit. Elle voulait ma pochette Margarita et moi, je voulais absolument ses mitaines!

L’expérience fut incroyable, pas seulement parce que on a bien aimé le troc mais aussi parce que faire la connaissance de cette bonne femme m’a rendu heureuse! c’est génial quand on peut parler des laines sans s’ennuyer!

Enfin, voici les belles mitaines de parisbyknit et visitez son magasin virtuel!!

And 2009 is finishing and a new balance is made.

For me was the year were the dreams came true…

When I was a child and somebody asked me what I wanted to be on life I always gave them different kind of answers, that’s why lot of people who knows me says I’m unstable. yeah. And what about of this people who want to make loads of things and not only one? can we? yes, we can (sic).

So, I wanted to be an artists, then a journalist, then I studied international business and finally I made the trip of my life and I decided I would be an artisan (this time for life).

In 2009 I didn’t “work” so, I became all of this in once. An artisan thanks to the threads and needles, a journalist thanks to my blogs, a trader thanks to the virtual markets and globally an artist (even if I don’t feel it at all) 😉

For sure in 2010 I’ll be back to work “formally” but I never ever in my life will abandon this precious treasure I have conquered. Amen.

Have a wonderful 2010!

Should I say month’s news?

Oh my! I can’t believe this month has passed so fast! There are only 33 days to Xmas!

November has been a bit silly… my parcel of yarns never arrived from England, they went back and we have some misunderstandings with the supplier so… uffff I had to look for new ones, organize myself to continue producing with almost nothing and here we are, I have found a new provider who has amazing fibers and you’ll see the results in next posts. Finally I’m glad … once again like yin and yang every negative contains a positive part.

Now the two new finished products are my lovely “Margarita” clutch bag knitted in a vibrant yellow-corn-mustard. I imagined it as a complement for a grey garment (to be the center of attention) or a light blue one (for a very retro look).

As I’m making a new vest (as the one I’ve made in white-cream some months ago) this time in a colorful palette… I was inspired to make this necklace I called “Spiral joy” and is obvious when you look at it, and you perceive the joy and good energy spreading all around…

Finally I’m having a SALE on my Etsy shop, my A little market shop and I’m going to participate on Dawanda Advent Calendar from 24th November to 17th December offering a 12% discount in all my products… so, good shopping!

Pochette in red

And finally I finished the third pochette… as I told here it was a red buckle left…

As we are almost entering in Fall season I made it with warmer fibers as wool and a piece of brown leather which gives it a lot of character…

Now that I can look at the trhee of them I love the fact that they have the same shape but completely different styles… and as all hanmade things a unique not perfect one……..

The new pochette

This week I have lots of new things to show you (I had a very productive weekend) but I still have to do lots of photos…

This is another clutch bag, but is not a simple one… I did some changes on the design and I went into a natural finishing (metal finding are not my favorite ones, but I have to recognized that people love them)… so for this one I put a leather strap I ended with a vintage buckle I have bought in Buenos Aires before coming to Europe (happily I have two more left!!) and I also added leather to the sides which make me feel more comfrotable with the “interiors” …

I love it! I simply fell in love with it when I saw it finished… enjoy the most charming one of my series of clutch bags..

She proposes three different options (all of them very cool!) so, if you feel lost and you have a wedding coming… this is going to help you find out your style…

Thanks Kelsi for having my clutch in mind!!

My second clutch bag

I’ve just finished a new clutch bag. This was made with a wider range of fibers in cream and peach colour and a little bit of golden acrylic. 

I think is more informal than the first one, what do you think?

Hand-woven Clutch bag

 

This one of a kind clutch bag is the result of mixing cotton, linen, ribbon and different acrylic fantasy fibers all in a creamy-white palette.

It is lined with pure silk, structured with fusible interfacing directly in contact with the weaving work and sew-in interlining between both; enough to be firm but without losing its natural feel.

A little bit rustic but with a touch of glamour… it has some loose sticking out fibers that are the result of the weaving technique.

Hope you like it and have a great worker day!
