I shared a photo of my dearly departed dog Malta recently. Had to share my other lost baby Lucy too. #ratterrierdalmatian miss those old ladies.
Neighbors house is being torn down and we found these old film strips in the debris.
Another one from the Blanco. Wish we lived in that neighborhood!

I wish these cuties were mine but they are going to a customer in Norway. Laboradorite cabochons with red coral beads. I may need to make myself a pair now. #ashleyjewelry
How yummy is that? Waters top in @quinceandco sparrow, banyon and fundi. I feel quite accomplished but I’m probably only like 1/16th of the way there. Ventana twill in brick brown from @fancytigercrafts for my #landerpants Outfit along 2018 got me motivated #oal2018 #knitting #sewing @west7thwool
I left the house in this outfit feeling cute the other night. But now looking at the photos that I planned to use on my blog this outfit just feels frumpy. It’s the Port Elizabeth top, a free pattern available on the Burda Style website and my first Brumby skirt. Normally I would balance a flowy, voluminous top with skinny jeans but I’m tired of jeans and it’s too damn hot anyways. I’m not going to post this on my blog since the outfit and photos aren’t my fav but I still wanted to share since this top was a labor of love. This pattern is a free download and makes a cute little boxy tee. I added the gathered peplum and made this in the 4th size up. I made another previously for a friend in the same linen that I used for bias binding the interior seams here. Despite all that work you can see in the last photo that after one wear the fabric is already falling apart. I loved this fabric so much that I ignored my intuition and persevered. Lesson learned, do not make clothes from what is essentially cheesecloth 😂 #portelizabethtop #burdastyle #freepattern #sewing #brumbyskirt #imadethis #ashleyakersblog #handmadewardrobe
Trying to knit while these two play fight behind me.

Beautiful end to a 🔥 day in Texas. Palomas and a movie up next
It has been really, really hot here lately. Zaps my energy. I did do some stuff today but not as much as I’d hoped. Just can’t run around all day when it’s like this. Sun is setting though and we are going to see our friends play some music and then meeting some other friends at a new pinball arcade. Happy Friday y’all! Oh, and I’m wearing all handmade. Will post better pics mañana. #handmadewardrobe #imadethis
Watermelon 🍉 + Trechas spicy 🌶 Powder = new addiction
Family portrait. What else to do but laze around in this heat. #prettypearlygirly

This is the last photo of my beloved Malta taken May 25, 2011. She was 15 1/2 and passed not long after this. My cactus in flower will always remind me of that sweet girl. She brought so much joy to our lives and traveled with me all across the western US. Always a good girl, also known as The Patron saint of dogs, Malta, Mapu, Papu, pretty precious prancing princess papu, Malty Bear and many more. Miss you old girl. ❤️ you can also see Lucy in the background.
More garden magic. These always remind me of my Malta girl (my old dog) because I have a photo of her standing next to this cactus when she was about 15. I’ll have to dig that one up. #texasgarden #pricklypear
