inspiration _ love & distance

I love weaving memories. 

When Melanie asked me to make her a weaving, there were a few pictures exchanged but the biggest piece of inspiration I took was the story.

For me personally, I think being a few states away from my loved ones is hard. Living a year away from someone you hold so closely like your partner, is another story. Melanie and her partner Mike have been living a transatlantic relationship for the past year. She said she rarely saw him and those times together were so special. Their last trip to Scotland together was to drive through the countryside together and take in all the beauty found there. She was able to move back after over a year of separation and this piece hangs in their home to remind them of the strength and love that conquers distance.
