Weather in Quimper Wednesday 7th September 2011: Cloudy morning, sunny afternoon, rained during the night. 22° at midday. Thursday cloudy but not cold. Friday rained all day, 19°. I’m going to stop doing weather on the blog, it makes no sense. I’ve bought a little notebook in which to keep a record, day by day weather in Quimper interests no one but me!

Wednesday night I finished another set of crocheted cotton eye make-up remover pads to put into my etsy shop to replace those sold at the beginning of the week, this time in sort of crushed raspberry ripple colour. I make seven at a time, one for each day of the week, to be thrown into the washing machine each evening and washed along with the family wash (easy for me, my washing machine is next to where I take my make-up off in the evenings!). I really like this solution to eye-make-up removal, which works perfectly with plain warm water (unless you wear waterproof). It’s comfortable, and a great saving on cotton wool and remover.

While browsing Pinterest yesterday,  I came across the blog of a Belgian lady (Aventures Textiles) which is absolutely astounding. She is a fiber artist, a lot of complex embroidery, some weaving, some crocheting. The results are breathtaking, judge for yourselves:

There are loads of other examples, do go and have a look.


About OneFrenchWord

I was a professional linguist and have been a life-long foodie. I am now lucky enough to be retired and free to roam the beaches around my home at the tip of the Finistère (Brittany, France). Writing is occupying a larger place in my life, with this blog and a children's book in preparation. I shall feel much happier calling myself a writer when I have published a book. And so posts on OneFrenchWord will be published first as an e-book, my ambition being to see a glossy volume on French language and cuisine in print some day. So keep reading, and snap up the book when it appears!
