Prince Charming

Do you think that if I kiss him, Prince Charming will appear? This one is for Fabulous Fab, one of my friends.


I made these delicious cherries to cheer my sister up before going to the hospital.

Handsome boy

Look how happy Cezar is in his new summer outfit! I found the pattern in an old, vintage magazine filled with cute baby knitware.

Sleeping Bag for Cezar

I made this cute sleeping bag for little Cezar, to keep him warm during the cold winter nights... It can be used recto-verso, but my sister prefered the white side. I love the egg shape.

Cesar is born

Look at this cutie!!!! Doesn't he look like a happy little boy with the gift I gave him? By the way, this is my newborn nephew Cesar, the most handsome boy on the earth. And the smartest ;-)

Spring Carrots

Aren't these little spring carrots just adorable? This a birthday present for my godmother, who's a amateur gardner and a great cook. They just fit in perfectly in her vegetable and herb garden.

Super Dry Dude

Meet the Super Dry Dude.
When my brother first found out that I was knitting and crocheting, he made fun of me and said I was just a big geek. But when he saw my Mr Moustache puppets, he quickly changed his mind and asked me if I could make one for him. But not any amigurumi, I had to think really hard and create a special one for him...
So this is the Super Dry Dude, with the colors of Super Dry, the brand he represents, and with a motor helmet, his big passion.

My labels

Yes! My new labels finally arrived! The only problem is that my amigurumi dolls are usually to small to have a label on them...


This is Clara, a colorfull variation on my Miss Kitty Cat. My friend Marie Gabrielle just gave birth to a little girl, Clara, and I'm going over to meet her this week. The photo below are my try-outs to find the perfect little flower to top her head.

Beautiful weekend

This weekend the sun finally decided to come out and made me hope for spring. Aren't my orchids just gorgeous? There's nothing like a little sunshine to charge your batteries.


This smiling little dude is Emiko, my japanese recto-verso amigurumi animal.
He just makes me smile :-)

Candy Ass

Finally some crafting for myself! I really loved doing the cross stitching for Siska and I wanted some inspirational quote, a mantra, for myself. So I did "Candy Ass". It's supposed to inspire me to lose wheight and at the same time to be proud of my curves. It's a girl power thing.

Shopping in Paris part 2

I also discovered in the same shop these two fantastic cushions. They remind me of Alice in Wonderland and really reflect me, myself and I. And they fit perfectly on my two frog chairs (crapaud).

Shopping in Paris part 1

Two weeks ago I went shopping in Paris and I had a big crush on this gorgeous tray. I had seen it before in some magazines. And when I saw it in Bensimon, Home Autour du Monde, I just couldn't resist. I love the combination of the wolf and the lamb, the renaissance way of painting, the recto/verso.

This handsome young gentleman is Victor, named after Isabelle's and Frank's first born. I finally decided to make his hat out of felt instead of crochet because it looked fancier that way.


This cute little hippo is called Benjamin, named after Celine's first born. It took me a while to finish him because I just couldn't find the right proportions. But here he is.

Cross Stitching for Bitches

My sister gave me a great book for Christmas called "Borduren for Bitches" (translation "Cross Stitching for Bitches"). It is absolutely awesome! Julie Jackson discovered a new type of anger management therapy with cross stitching. Instead of doing the cute and kitch type of paterns, she uses outraguous phrases. Look at her website http://www.subversivecrossstitch.com/
I was totaly inspired and decided to make one for Siska, with the appropriate word "zuurpruim", litteraly "sour prune". It's an inside joke about one of her female bosses who made her life misserable... I think the contrast between this nasty word and the cute little pink bunnies and blue birds is a total hit!

Naughty Kitty

It took me a long time to make this new amigurumi simply because I had to find exactly the right design. I had promised my friend Siska on her birthday (July 24th!) that I would make her a Hello Kitty, but a naughty one. Well, it's not that easy to find out how you can "sex" up a "sweet little kitty". I finaly decided I would make it a black kitty instead of white, and with a lot of bling. Then I found on some japanese sites this half demon half angel kitty and that was it. As you can see she has little horns and a demon tail and is wearing a red, naughty dress. But she also has cute white little wings, underpants with lace and a big white heart with some bling. Needless to say Siska LOVED it! I think it's one of my masterpieces so far.
