Claire

Hello

for those of you who don’t know me, I’m Claire ^^ avatar early fifties, married to a French chappie,  and living in France, in the Lyon vicinty.  We have three children:  two working and living in England and one working & living near Marseille.

I  try to avoid housework by spending way too many hours on the computer, cross stitching and patchworking.

We are animal lovers: 1 dog, 4 cats, Amazon Parrot and three hens  . . . so looking after that lot also keeps me happy and out of trouble.

and for anyone interested in trying out their French – I run two blogs, other one here c’est toujours Claire  ^^

      • Hi,

        I agree with you Paula 😉

        I am not really patient so I am sure I could never do that !…

        I remember the first time when I visited your blog Claire and now I can see that you have made a lot of new and different things !

        See you,
        Céline

Hope to read and see more inspiring photos and words here Claire and keep up the good work!!!

  3. Hi Claire, Love the new platform for your blog. Nice to have a change around. What a lovely photo of Black Jack – he is very photogenic, the MOTH wants to know does he give out Paw Prints as his autograph.

  4. Claire dear ~ HELP!!! Just discovered the Grand on your blog….the link no longer available, but
    when I found Isabelle’s (all in French) found it was a picture not a graph? Thank goodness I found
    you in English…Has the Graph ever been published? I would so love to do this one…Reminds me
    of a similar Perlin one I did. Many thanks.

  5. Hello Claire!

    Do you exchange bookmarks with collectors from other Countries?
    I am from Portugal and i have many portuguese bookmarks for exchange.

    Best regards,
    Paulo

    • Hello Paulo
      I’d be happy to exchange bookmarks but not for the moment. We’re in a transition period, between selling our house and buying a new house, and living in temporary accommodation at the moment.

  6. Love your blog and charts! My Great Niece had 3 cats (lost her pal of 17 years just a few days ago. Christmas is coming and I would love your Cat ABC cross stitch chart to make for her. Her remaining 2 cats are rescues and I feel sure she won’t remain “one short” for too long. Again, our ABCat would be just wonderful for her and hope you can send it to me.

  7. Hello!
