I did not took the time to publish anything in the last days (month???) as I was only focusing on my move to the United States. Before I left France I stopped at the notion’s store Homo-Roussel in Rouen, France in order to buy a few DMC Natura for a new project. This reference is not available in North America and I hope I bought enough for my project!

On this picture you can see a lot of Sajou notions that this store carries.

During the Aiguille en Fête fair, I discovered Myrobolan yarns. I stopped at their booth because it was beautifully set, the packing and overall design were really attracting. Afterwards, it’s the quality and the engagement that made me stay on the booth. Unfortunately I could not buy any yarn because I am moving abroad really soon and stashing new yarn is not an option. I was so amazed by their products that I wanted to introduce Myrobolan to you.
