meet.make.crochet-along: hexagon table runners.

Amidst all the baby crocheting, the two of us decided we wanted take a little break to work on Alicia's August crochet-along project. The hexagon table runner seemed like a great stash buster, and the hexagons didn't seem like they would be taxing to whip up quickly.

Where did summer go?

Wow! As usual, summer is just flying by us! And what a summer it's been!!

We have been a little MIA around the blog as of late... with vacations, camping trips, weddings, and just SO MANY BABIES, we'll admit it's been a little difficult to schedule a Ladies Night In!

Our DIY projects during these lovely months have been revolving around BABY crafts.
So while Cindy 'crafted' baby Nell, Hayley and Steph have been making a lot of baby gifts which we are hoping to continue sharing with you very soon. 

So stay tuned! The updates are on the way!

Thursday, 15 August 2013 blankets: part 1

Between Hayley and I, I think we have 4-5 completed baby blankets to share with you! There have been so many babies lately, that we have barely been keeping up with all the crocheting! Be warned.... meet.make.laugh. might get a little crochet heavy over the next little while! 

So as we mentioned, Cindy gave birth to a beautiful baby girl a couple weeks ago. We can't wait to share pictures of Nell with you (she's SO CUTE), but until then you need to be satisfied with pictures of the baby blanket I made for her!

A few months ago my lovely new sister-in-law Julia asked me to make some boutineers for their wedding. She didn't want to go the traditional flower route, and so I picked up some burlap, ribbon, jute cord and pearls to make something a little different!

After many failed attempts, I finally came up with something I liked! I cut the burlap into circles, stiffened them with hairspray, and then added different accents to each one.

It's a girl!!

We are so excited to announce that on Thursday, August 1st at 6:10 pm Cindy gave birth to a BEAUTIFUL baby girl weighing 7 lbs 14 oz! Mom and babe are doing great, and get to come home from the hospital today. 

Cindy and Josh have named her Nell, which suits her so much! We are the proudest aunties ever. To welcome her home.... we thought we would put a little decoration up!

Friday, 2 August 2013 backdrop.

For our wedding, I was searching for something simple and fitting for our ceremony backdrop. After hours of trolling through Pinterest and many, MANY different ideas, the idea of the lace curtain was created.
