Hey there - I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the holidays. It seems quiet out here amongst the blogs, which is sort of nice. I imagine everyone nestled in at home, giving their typing fingers a rest.
Emily is home for almost two weeks so we have been sleeping in, staying up late watching movies, making chai and miso (she would prefer to do without the miso), battling a headache that is on it's third day (me not her, thankfully), we are drinking lemon ginger tea, feeling giddy and inspired by new yarn and fabric, and kind of wishing we'd get another snow storm soon. Snowstorms on Christmas vacation are hard to beat.
We are also painting Emily's room this week which I'm nervous about because it is currently my favorite room to photograph in. Her room is the clearest, prettiest blue, and with it's southeastern exposure it makes me very happy to click away in. These photos were taken on a gray and rainy day, not the best light - but I can still make it work on darker days, usually.
Her new color choice? Brown. Wish me luck.
On that summer evening years ago, I started to fall in love with the idea of a special quilt to be used outside of the home. This is approximately a full size quilt, with low loft cotton batting. It could be kept in the car (or by the door if you walk or bike), and brought to parks, concerts, and picnics - collecting memories and having a presence in family photos as the years pass.
