Croque Choux - a quick trip to Paris
Croque choux is a blog by an anonymous woman who reportedly was born in LA and lives in the suburbs of Paris. Well, since she complains about Paris traffic and picking her kid up from school, it seems real enough.
What caught my eye was her dragonfly done with free motion embroidery. Beginning with water soluble plastic and tulle, she built up the stitching until the charming dragon fly emerged. Another dragonfly is made of bead and angelina fiber wings.
Croque choux's fiber arts archive has lots of witty inspiration and links to resources available in Europe. You can find fabric postcards and a needle-felted bear. The Japanese section is not near large enough, but covers the beautiful fabrics and quirky animation that my daughters and I find so addictive. A final ink sends me on to her favorite museum: Los Angeles County Museum of Art.Posted by sfenton at April 11, 2005 09:09 AM
