Love having salads for lunch. This time I made parmesan rosemary crackers to go with my salad. Very easy to make. Recipe from Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook.

with natural dyes

I have been experimenting with natural dyes on linen and organic cotton to create the right shade for my new line of cloth dolls.
For a long time I have been working on this new line, but did not manage to finish it on time because the knitted toys are always a priority.
Hopefully for next season some of these dolls will join the other creatures and be offered to to our lovely retailers and on Fournier's webshop.

vertical gardens & hanging plants

Not so far away from my house in Bogota, I found this lovely plant nursery where they are very creative with the way small plants are displayed.

a clever use of pallets to create different spaces

new collection, new hats

Our new collection is full of knit patterns and with lots of color.
The new hats on some of the characters are hand embroidered with silver stars or "bouillons".
