Big Sur

We are always so busy with work and everyday life, we forget how beautiful the area we live in is. So, Friday night, I told my youngest son and husband not to make plans for Sunday. That we were going to go on a picnic. They agreed with NO COMPLAINTS but they didn't know where we were going and didn't even ask.  I just told them to be ready to leave by 9:30.

So, I packed up a picnic basket and cooler for a quick lunch and some relaxation.  I packed a few games and my NookColor. They brought their own IPods. With the car packed with basket, cooler and chairs ~we were off to beautiful Big Sur.  We only live about 30-45 minutes from Big Sur. It was a quick, breath taking drive down. I forgot how truly beautiful the drive is.

We got into Pfeiffer State Beach, we parked and walked a few yards to the river and set up right there along the river.It was so peaceful to sit and just listen to the river running. I relaxed and read my Nook while my son and husband went walking up the river.  Weather was perfect at 76 degrees. Just a little breeze every once in a while to cool you off.

Hope you all had a relaxing weekend as well.

Baby Stuff

As most of you know my niece, Erica, had her 2nd son this past week. I couldn't wait to make Johnathan a cute blanket, bib and burp cloth. The blanket is about 34" X 34". Super wonderful flannel fabrics.

Love the RicRac peaking out from the pocket. Click picture and see closer

I also have been wanting to make a blanket and bib for a friend of mine. I just haven't had a chance to do it until this week. Just as cute as Bailey is. I just love this fabric.

Both sides of blanket and bib are soft, warm flannel.
These are so addictive to make. I am going to pick up some more fabric this week in order to make a few more. I have two friends that are having baby girls in the next few weeks.
