Familiar Places...

I recently returned from a trip to the Bay Area and Napa for a dear friend's wedding and wanted to share some photos with you all...

Growing up in Northern California I have seen many of the famous sights hundreds of times. I've tried to not roll down the steep hills of San Fran while at a stop sign in my stick shift Volkswagen bug, I've ridden over and over the roller coaster at the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, I've had fresh Clam Chowder in a bread bowl, I've been to Alcatraz, Giants and 49er games, all the things you do when you live near such a glorious area of the world.

I love going back to these familiar places where, when you arrive, you suddenly recognize the smells, colors, breezes, and any other characteristics that have stuck with you over time.

I wanted to capture these characteristics I remembered so well with a camera. You know, the images that are already ingrained in your brain just not on film.

I love looking at something and thinking 'Hey, I remember you!'

and I had to journey to my favorite restaurant of course:

They serve the best German Food and Boots of Beer!!! Yummy :)

Anyhoo - back to sewing for me! I hope this finds everyone well!

My first tote!

As some of you may know I am taking a sewing class at the local City College... I've been wanting to learn for ages and I finally have the time to take a proper class.

This was/is my first project. A Tote Bag. It's far from perfect but I'm happy with the way it turned out (considering I couldn't even turn on my machine two weeks ago).

I only went through two broken needles to make it!!! :) Poor machine!

Have a great weekend!

Thanks to all of you who signed up for the monthly email newsletter! (your goodie bags are being put together as we speak)

I've decided to kick it off the beginning of October... If you would like to stay updated this will be a much easier way to do so then by visiting my blog.

Also, if you sign up for the newsletter you will receive a free promo pack that includes a print, postcards, and some other secret stuff. (while supplies last - I will blog when I am out of stuff). Please include your mailing address if you are interested.

I'm working on loads of new stuff for the holiday season including some textiles, fiber art and tons and tons of cute throw pillows!

Thanks and I hope this all finds you well :)
