weekend love.

Tuesday, July 29, 2014



You ever have a weekend that is just perfect? We did this last weekend, and I'm honestly still mourning that it's over! My sister and her fiancé (!!!) came to visit, we went to one of our favorite spots for some drinks + Jenga, and put on our in our KISS and TLC best fancy dress for Ryan's mom's (surprise) 50th birthday party!









Obviously the boys did a great job! If you can't tell from the shoulders up what our costumes are, here you go (there's sound):


We poured some out for Left Eye throughout the night!

It was so great to just hang out with family and friends (and new family and their friends) and soak in all the love. If every weekend for the rest of summer life can be like this, I'll be in good spirits for eternity!

Happy Tuesday!

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!
