Bonjour Sew Weekly!
Hello there Sew Weekly and a very happy and creative year to you!
My nickname is Grafik-Grafok, but my name (my real name!) is Celine Denizon and I live in Toulouse, South-West France and I love eating croissants for breakfast, but everything’s not true about Frenchies!
You can find out more about me on my blog and check all my pictures there : http://grafiketgrafok.blogspot.com/ (sorry it’s all written in french but I’m planning to do something about that!)
I was a little girl when I watched my mom sew and she was doing this like it was so easy! A seam here, a seam there, and done! Haha! I remember how disappointed I was the first time I tried sewing a simple garment… It wasn’t that easy. But I’ve learned patience along the way and now I’ve been (really) sewing for about 3 years.
Now, I want to commit to the Sew Weekly Community to push my creativity forward, I like to be thrown out of my comfort zone and try new things and new ways!
I so love sewing! Just like you! First I love beginning a new personal challenge, something that makes me wonder if I’m totally crazy or just completely wacky! Secondly, I just love how I can play with patterns, colors… and see all that little jigsaw puzzle going on and suddenly making a garment! Isn’t that magical? ^^ Haha! Love, love that!
Mmmm…. ok, there are things I hate too : I hate making a mistake three times in row… « Ok, don’t do it wrong this time! Don’t do it wrong this time! » and guess what? Yeah… did it.
Well, I came to the conclusion that I hate to unstitch.
My goals with regards to Sew Weekly for 2012? I’d like to become a real good sewer (yes it might take more than a year!), and I’m sure this will help, because I don’t want to disappoint you! And for once, I’d like to make clothes for me! Haha!
My biggest non-sewing goal of 2012: Go out more, less TV, spending more time in the kitchen and finally wear dresses! ^^
