i know i say it every august…
but this summer
really did go by
way. too. fast.
i love fall. i do.
i just need a few more days
with toes in the sand
eating popsicles for breakfast
reading mags by the pool
today we drove tay back to the bronx.
summer is over.
she was sad.
we were sad.
even nellie knew…
we miss you already!
(i know i’ve made that clear)
are having a preview sale
(find them in target stores starting september 5th)
melamine in all it’s glory…
and tucker’s signature tops and dresses!
are best spent
… playing bocce with cousins
… eating s’mores by the fire
seriously the most anticipated issue of the year in the fashion magazine world
september’s is always jam-packed with inspiration
though it’s arrival in early august is always a bit depressing…
something about looking a tweed while drinking lemonade on the beach-
but the photos
and the fashion
ooooh, the fashion…
and this year
was certianly NO disappointment
with my favorite leading ladies gracing the most coveted covers…
(can’t really go wrong with the producers of juno and little miss sunshine…)
our next-door neighbors recently welcomed a little girl to their family…
the summer babe is named violet
and i thought it was the perfect excuse
to finally break into my purple stash
for a fun play quilt!
this top was another project i managed to squeak out of girl’s weekend
but completely improvised with no planning or measuring
and i was thrilled with the ease and speed of which it came together
i will definitely make similar quilts for baby gifts in the future!
golly, do these fresh takes on summer’s goodness just look divine or what?!?
so, after our fun day sewing
864 squares for each quilt back together…
came the fun part…
evan’s clean and modern top:
anya’s eclectic chic:
here they are, all pieced, side by side
and a few details
at our next get together we will back, quilt and bind…
thinking blue + white seersucker backing for both!
