Weekend Snapshots

We spent the weekend at Pismo, on the central coast of California. While it was a bit cooler in Fresno, it was still the perfect weather break for us--gray and a little misty in the morning, burning off to a sunny day. Sweatshirt and shorts weather. Ahh...


Like every other year, we park our car when we get to the hotel, and if we can't get to where we want to go by walking, well, we just don't go.

For Sunday lunch, we split a fabulous burrito. This is only 1/3 of it. Monstrous.
And this was our view as we sat on our deck eating our burrito and chips. Tough life...but somebody's gotta do it.
Yeah, I know. Pretty much the same view, sunnier this time. But really, how could anyone get tired of this view?
And remember how I planned on sewing at Lakeview but the weather was too nice to stay inside? Well, we just set up our tables facing the ocean and opened up the sliding glass door.
I know you are thinking to yourself: "Two sewing machines?" Mark cut, he pressed fabric and he sewed. We both worked on Matt and Samantha's wedding quilt. Here are parts of it...can't give away too many details, in case they happen to read this post, so there is another project on the table just to keep them guessing.
In the category of "what the heck is this guy doing?" We see him nearly every time we are here. He "crab walks" the beach, back and forth, only on Sundays. Why? I wish I could tell ya.
As a bonus, on Monday I got to meet Cynthia Mann of fabricworm, an etsy shop where I have spent many a dollar. So fun to meet her in person, and what better way (for me, at least...) to end the weekend than with a bag of gorgeous new fabric?
