More from Clevedon, in which we have a nature trail pretty much to ourselves and there's lots of photo (and video) of grass blowing in the wind!






















I'm not 100% sure what happened to the video quality between me saving the file and Vimeo doing its thing...but...um...maybe don't view this full screen? Womp.


Happy Thursday!

These next two posts are going to be photo heavy! You've been warned!

When we hopped on the bus to Clevedon, I was so excited for a quiet afternoon by the seaside with my love. That's exactly what we got. (That and a glimpse of Season 2 of Broadchurch being filmed!!!)

We had coffees on the pier, grabbed lunch at a pub that Ryan used to go to with his family when he was younger, and went on a trek along the Poet's Walk before making our way home!













More from the walk tomorrow!

Happy Wednesday!

Here's my latest baby kit! I have more process shots than finished product images of this project because I had to make a mad dash to the post office the second that I finished to get it mailed out in time! I made this set for a girlfriend from college who just had a gorgeous baby girl; she wanted something pretty but not PINK, so we chose a lovely coral color and paired it with a cream yarn for a baby cocoon and matching hat!

You can't really see it in the images, but I did a crocodile stitch around the border of the cocoon to add a little interest and texture. It came out beautifully, I'll have to add it to another piece to take some photos of the details!

Uff, babies are so cute and squishy! I just wrapped a cute little newborn hat last night and I'm working on a few custom patterns for the shop. Fall will be here sooner than you know it (although I hope that summer hangs on for dear life)!

Happy Monday!

this and that.

Never thought you'd see the day, huh?

It's back!

I've got so many links for you that I've been saving over these last few weeks, I'm just going to hop straight to it. Grab a coffee (or a wine or a beer, it's 5 o'clock somewhere!) and tuck in!
