Twisted and Sublime

I just went into Twisted in NE Portland, and wow! The store is so beautiful and so are the yarns. They have organized the yarn so well and their selection is so diverse. I fell in love with Sublime, which is the luxury line from Sirdar. The colorways are so beautiful and the baby pattern book is darling. It is too bad that they are so faraway, I would be spending a lot more time there.

Keziah's Baby Shower

This is Keziah modeling the Bouton dress I made over a year ago, before she was even a thought. This was taken at her baby shower and the glasses were a gift. I thought it was pretty cute.

Baby Blanket

This is a picture of a blanket made with Rowan All Seasons Cotton. The pattern comes from 100 Aghan Squares. I love all the textures and patterns.

Fourth of July

We had a great Fourth of July out on the river. My parents took the boat up to Hayden Island for the night and we got to tag along. The weather was so hot! This was Keziah's first outing on the boat and she did really well.

Bronson was also very

brave on the water this week. Richard and I have birthday's within two days of each other, so we often celebrate together. My mom an sister made a lovely birthday brunch on Saturday and the kids were ready to play in the water. My parents live on the river, so there is a nice "swimming pool" off the back deck. Last year Bronson was very timid to get in the water, but this time he was ready to go. He was even "surfing" on the pontoons of the hobie cat. Swimming lessons start next week and I know he will do great!
