2020 Recap

Collage of 2020 events

2020. I know we all have a lot to say with this very crazy year. Ours started off with sickness. From Dec-March, we had at least one child with a cold, flu, or strep throat (miss Paisley mostly). Once covid "panic" hit and school didn't go back in though, we've been mostly sickness free! A lot of things changed for us in 2020, but in the same breath...a lot stayed the same. So, here's to 2020!


Riley Blake Designs - Glohaven

One of the biggest reasons we bought this house was because of all the fruit tree's it has. I love getting apples, cherries, apricots, pomegranates, and peaches (we also have a pear tree but it still needs to do some growing before it bears any fruit) each summer. This year we didn't get as many peaches as last, but they were quite a bit bigger and tasted sooooo good! 
When I saw Glohaven from Riley Blake Designs had a peach print, we couldn't resist making a peach dress!


Riley Blake Designs - Woven Wool


My favorite things to sew are all for the fall weather. Pants, coats, sweaters, jeans, etc. They're all so cozy and fun to make! When I saw that Riley Blake Designs was coming out with a full wool collection, I may have jumped up and down a little bit! I've been imaging making all the wool things!


Riley Blake Designs - Destinations

Growing up, my family moved a lot. My mother has the soul of a traveler and I love going on adventures. We had plans to go on quite the grand roadtrip this last summer, but that has been postponed and we stayed very close to home (okay we just really literally stayed home). 

Riley Blake Designs line, Destinations, was so much fun to work with and daydream on all the adventures we still have left to go on! 


Riley Blake Designs - Create

With this year I felt I needed a little rainbow happiness sparkled in there, so after getting a fat quarter bundle of Create and seeing a quilt made by Jennie Smith in the Young & Millennial Quilters on Facebook, I just couldn't shake it and had to recreate this quilt for me.


Riley Blake Designs - Basics


Anyone that knows me knows that I love stripes! I can't tell you why I love them, just that they're amazing and I do and any chance I get to make a dress out of stripes I will jump at it!


Riley Blake Designs - Pirate Tales

I am so itching to go on an adventure! Since we're still staying home, we'll have to make up our adventures at home and what better way to do that than with a Pirate dress?
Pirate Tales, one of Riley Blake Designs newest lines, is perfect for that high seas adventure. We get Pirates, loot, sharks, and treasure!


Riley Blake Designs - Merry Little Christmas

It's not quite Christmas in July yet, but I'm gearing up for it with Riley Blake Designs  new line, Merry Little Christmas. It has the cutest little prints and tree's and plaids. It makes it hard not to get into the Christmas sprit right now!
