Completed and looking ahead

Hi all, I want to share some news , I'm proud enough how that curtains turn up !
If I can say :  Linen is wonderful and drawn-thread-embroidery (called drawn-work too)
never disappoints , never fails me ..because fits to any decoration style, but as always said in my blog: Stone and Wood are the best partners  to join Linen fabric .

You will see below the curtains in a different context, when I will have pictures from the owner I will share here !  much more better, such design was made for one customer, one house ..that is important to  me : made with care, putting my thoughts  into that family :-)) honestly.

Here we are !

Those are 2 net curtains covering 2/3 windows-glass

They have initials of the owners ..a stunning monogram from my favourite's  book

Here close detail from embroidery (cross-stitch)
And following ..curtains in its place :

This is and renovated old house ... stone heart and wood eyes :-)
Linen window treatment is the best for that 'small' eyes... dressing windows with covering light

Another one for girl's room (2 of them same window )

Pictures are very bad, but what I want here is to show you the possibilities.
However , I like to make pictures at home before sent them in order to have as much samples as I could to explain to my customers for their choice.

 Here all together.... 3 windows 3 rooms 3 possibilities.. project's are endless, we and you , we can work together and design what you are looking for ages !

Hope you like them..as much as I like make them :-)) ins't it cute ? ...Linen is gorgeous .

Thanks for your interest in my humble job 


Beyond the simplicity of linen lives a warm heart...

Happy New Year ..
Yes I have not written for ages ! Almost 3 months.
I have been very busy moving home, and as you know it is a mess, getting all the stuff in boxes..
I like simplicity and easy life, therefore always looking for not having tons of items surrounding
and taking space. Despite that , we had too much.

As many of you know, if you are following this blog, Linen Artisan creates Linen projects that try to be timeless pieces, pieces that you can keep for ages and generations, yes ! As I said several times in my blog, this Natural and vegetal fibre lasts forever, it is 2 times stronger than cotton and coexists with human being since the beginnings .

Curtains in my Studio are the most requested, I'm proud to say that my Linen drawn-work curtains are around the World : USA, AUS,Canada,Sp,UK...
Saying that, it doesn't mean I'm running a big business, and having somebody to help me , on the contrary !
My work is absolutely handmade, and I have only 2 hands :-))
As an average, I can make 2 of them in a week, if they are large size, if it is small, maybe 3 .
I do like using my hands and always had ! But since 20 years ago , Linen is my passion.
All I can do with Linen, I do it .

Linen makes home warm and cosy (and fresh in Summertime ) Each design is for me an opportunity to reflects of needs and desires of my customers .That is the most important to me :
Creativity for the love on making a house an inspiration where to live.

Sharing with you my latest crafts:

1- Pictures from a makeover Armoire/ Wardrobe for my bed room, restored Antique wood that I remove the heavy mirror door and change it for my linen curtains...Can be an idea for you as well !

2- Cover cushion made by Tea towel , vintage tea towel called :'mangle cloth '..isn't gorgeous !

And I would like to finish this post with a nice spot at home :
