Welcome to my petit atelier












My petit atelier is not entirely tidy, not entirely finished either but it doesn't matter. I feel happy in it. This is where I make the cards and the aprons. Where I dream. A lot. When the weather is nice just like today or yesterday and hopefully tomorrow, I work on the table in the patio. This is how my sunday was spent, finishing a couple of aprons by hand, because once again my sewing machine had a nervous crisis. And then by 6 o'clock, I made a chocolate cake to recharge batteries. So Monchéri and I had a very late tea or early chocolate dinner while listening to the very cool African blues of Lobi Traore.

Mon petit atelier n'est pas totalement rangé, ni totalement fini mais ce n'est pas important. Je m'y sens bien. C'est là où je fais mes cartes et les tabliers. Là où je rêvasse. Beaucoup. Quand il fait chaud comme aujourd'hui ou hier et demain j'espère, je travaille dans le patio. C'est comme ça que j'ai passé mon dimanche, à finir deux tabliers à la main parce qu'une fois de plus, ma machine à coudre a piqué sa crise. Et puis vers 18h, j'ai fait un gâteau au chocolat histoire de recharger les batteries. Donc, on a pris un thé très tardif ou plutôt un dîner tout chocolat très tôt tout en vibrant sur le blues très cool de Lobi Traore.

Dear Lala, I see my beautiful apron on top of your table in your Atelier. I LOVE my apron...it is my most favorite, only I don't wear it when I do real work, only when I want to feel pretty.
We're off to Paris in a couple of days. Auf Wiedersehen.
