I’m Claire-Mélody Cascail aka Melarise (New Caledonia, 1985).
I am a savage embroiderer and cross stitch pattern designer and I am pretty sure I won't stop until my eyes want to.

My favourite tools are: time, hands, threads, music, Internet and my cat.

What I do when I’m not embroidering is playing with my band, conquering new nap territories and reading under the sun.
