Sunday Share - Amazing Mendocino

It's hard to believe a week has come and gone -
Mendocino is now a memory, but boy....

The time there was filled with lots of stitching, wonderful people and all in a beautiful (one of the most beautiful) places in California.  I am a lucky person!

Greetings From Mendocino

As soon as the tires hit the pavement of US1 in Mendocino on Sunday we went in search of coastal access, and it did not take more than a few minutes to find ourselves walking through the woods of Jughandle State Reserve -which led us to a grassland field. The grass swayed in the breeze-so lovely to stand and enjoy, and then pop! A raven jumped from where he was hiding in the tall grasses and slowly flew upwards, then pop! another raven jumped from his place and the two slowly flew away- sending their welcoming quorks as they went. It was a grand place to start our visit to this magical coastline area. Walking the paths worn through the grassland brought you to the sea. Hope you enjoy these photos taken along the way.

Fan-Tabulous Friday!

Fridays have always held a special... magical place in my heart.
They seem to be the signal for fun, and putting aside the chores
and work of the week and heading for hills.

This is one of those magical Fridays, for I'm packing up to head for a week of teaching at the Mendocino Art Center.
What could be better ----  being in a most incredible place
and getting to share my 'stuff'.

I promise to take lots of pictures.
Hope your Fan-Tabulous Friday provides a wonderful
kick-start for a great weekend!

Color-The Perfect Inspirational Lift

My friend and I took a bit of a break on Sunday and headed out for brunch and a bit of a wander. After our yummy breakfast we headed out for a bit of a walk. Well, truth be told we headed out for a color infusion at our local (amazingly wonderful) yarn store. Me the quilter (though admitted big time coucher), made a few select purchases, while my friend the knitter took home only a large dose of color inspiration. Enjoy!
