On the Road Again...


View from the 11th floor, Seaside, CA, aka Monterey Bay. The adventure begins.
Well, it's really not that adventurous--we're talking a nice hotel, a pleasant drive with great weather, nice and clear and sunny. Not too warm, not too cold...
Today is the "hiatus" day and gives me a chance to do a little computer stuff in the hotel before we head out to the Aquarium. Look for those pictures next. Hoping to see the baby otters, but don't know if they will be on display or not.
Knitting will be happening today, I'm sure... and then it will be 5-6 days of quilting. The projects all got packed and it will be fun to see what's in the supply tubs.

Yes, tubs. I should take a picture of the inside of the car, shouldn't I? Four sewing machines, each in its case; lots of bags, boxes, and tubs of fabric and tools. Not to mention a couple of suitcases full of clothes. Two women, 12 days, quilting and knitting, what more do you want?
Anyway, the tubs are still packed from last year's excursion to Asilomar. This tells me a couple of things: the major one being that I have sorely neglected my quilting. I think there are a lot of things that have taken a back seat, and I'm hoping to use this time away to assess and evaluate and maybe see what directions I should be moving in.
'Nuff with the serious stuff. There are fishes and otters and other sea critters waiting for me, so I'll be back (hopefully--depending on hotel wi-fi for this!) with more!

Blue skies, green grass...it looks so warm!!! We are still digging out from yesterday's big snowstorm. Enjoy the fabulous weather and accomodations!

Wow, it is beautiful. I haven't been to Carmel since my 'run-away' excursion around the 17 mile drive many years ago. It was beautiful.

Have fun. I will be waiting to see all your quilting and knitting.

Happy hunting. Hope you find some wonderful yarn.
