Playing in the poppy field




This is what is keeping me busy these days
my little apron collection....
Do you remember some time ago,
I was telling you how I would love to wear a nice working outfit ?
So this is it, I'm making a little apron collection.
I've ordered fabrics from England, which took quite a while to arrive,
reworked the pattern with a professional seamstress,
tried to get my sewing machine fixed
because until now I was sewing by hand...yes, crazy !

And the fun part in all that is making pics with Monchéri.
We will use them to create a little lookbook catalog.
I can't wait to show you the next models....
Believe me they are fun !

Voilà ce qui m'occupe dernièrement,
ma petite collection de tabliers....
Vous souvenez-vous, il y a quelque temps, je vous disais
mon envie de porter des beaux tabliers à la maison comme à l'extérieur.
alors voilà, je crée une collection de tabliers .
J'ai commandé des tissus d'Angleterre qui ont mis du temps à arriver.
J'ai dû retravailler le patron avec une professionnelle ,
réparer ma machine à coudre parce que jusqu'à présent,
je cousais à la main....oui, une folie !

Et le plus amusant est de faire des photos avec Monchéri.
Nous les utiliserons pour créer un lookbook.
Je suis impatiente de vous montrer les futurs modèles.
Croyez-moi, ils sont très chouettes !

I thought our poppy fields in France were wonderful, but your Spanish ones topple them.

Sublime!

So excited for you, Lala. Love when people begin new adventures. The aprons are romantically charming. Wishing you lots of fun and success...a field of poppies is good place to start.

Lala- the extreme in adorable- Love the first shot best- they are all very lovely! AND I do like the milk of the poppy...good thing it is illegal!

Theresa Cheek said...

Oh, this is so good! You have told such a magical story in these photos. The fields of poppies are something I am jealous of! Can't wait to see the aprons.

aguja said...

What fun! They are beautiful ... and how very 'Renoir' the setting - brilliant, incidentally.

Mix Hart said...

A most maginificient field of poppies! The apron is lovely.
I have a question: I am travelling to Barcelona in a few weeks time and have 2 weeks in Spain. Would you recommend time in Menorca or skip it and go elsewhere?

Cloud of Secrets said...

Gorgeous! I adore poppies, all the color and light they radiate from their tissue-like petals. I planted some Icelandic poppies in my garden patch this spring; I'm hoping they'll come back year after year. How fortunate you are to ne near a field packed with them!

Your aprons sound delightful. Looking forward to more pictures! I should get into the habit of wearing aprons more often; now I only do it if I'm baking something with lots of flour, or cooking something very splattery.
