Un col tricoté / Knitted Cowl Neck Warmer

Ca faisait bien 20 ans que je n'avais pas tricoté ! Une belle pelote de Soie - Alpaga, c'était trop tentant... et voilà un col bien chaud !
When I was younger, I used to knit. When I saw this beautiful Silk - Alpaca ball of wool, I decided to knit a neck warmer.

Tout simple, sur un modèle de Monique Gascon, mais avec des torsades.
Easy pattern by Monique Gascon on Ravelry, but with extra cables.

Blogger's Quilt Festival : Celtique (Small Quilts category)

My second entry in the Blogger's Quilt Festival, Small Quilts Category.

I just love this Celtic pattern, and had a lot of joy to sew it.

Celtique, 41.3" x 49.2" 

We were in San Diego, California, sailing down to Mexico.
I made it for my sweatheart's mother, who live in the North of France.

Blogger's Quilt Festival : Tifaifai Uru (Appliqué Quilt category)

8 years ago, as I lived in French Polynesia (Tahiti) and one of my sister in the French West Indies (Guadeloupe), I start to sew a traditional tahitian patchwork - a Tifaifai - for her wedding.

I choose a breadfruit pattern, because of the link between Tahiti and West Indies, as this veggie came from Polynesia to feed people in Guadeloupe and Martinique.

Tifaifai Uru, 106'' x 96''

I was living on a sailboat, and I sew this Tifaifai during a sailing trip from Hawaii to British Columbia. Satin Moon Quilt Shop in Victoria BC was kind enough to let me use their big table in the classroom to be able to flat perfectly the two layers. Well, inside my boat, it was quite small!

Inside my sailboat, not so much room!
