Since this photo was snapped last week, my Laight Street wrap has grown exponentially and I am now more than halfway through the chart repeats and nearing the finishing line. The cable and lace is so beautiful and easy to follow and knitting on size 11 needles means its working up fast. Am loving everyContinue reading “laight.”
It’s here. And once I’m resigned that summer is indeed over, I love everything about fall. Plenty of warm days and chilly nights. And delicious foods and pumpkins and feed stores and fairs.
I’ve been wanting a bar cart for my place for years. Instead of going out and buying the first thing that caught my eye, its been a years-long search for a special piece that fit seamlessly within my design aesthetic. This summer, whilst wandering through an antique barn in rural New Hampshire, a mint conditionContinue reading “bar cart.”
My mum gifted me this amazing Pendleton San Miguel bedspread and matching pillow shams for my birthday this past weekend. Isn’t it a beauty? I love that, like all Pendleton blankets, it is reversible, and can change the look and feel of the bedroom with a flip.

This pretty extensive cross stitch pattern of a Yei Bi Chei has been my go to small project since the beginning of August. I’ve completed about half of the design and am loving the results.
I wish, in New England, I could eat like this forever.
This summer, I spent most of my time on various amazing, life changing trips. Nights in a moon roofed tent, days hiking in canyons and swimming in secluded lakes. If I could go back and start them all over again, I would. If you want to see some snaps from my jaunt through the southwest,Continue reading “camping.”
Dreaming of something in purple ombres. Anyone have some ideas of what I can knit out of this set of colors?
