Yesterday I got the chance to head over the hill to Santa Cruz and enjoy a morning of slight indulgence. I got to sit at the The Buttery and have a yummy plate of croque monsieur and a steamed hot cider. I read a magazine that I had yet to get around to and then had a muffin because I wasn't ready to leave!
It may not look like much, but it was delicious!
I didn't spend as much time at the beach as I would have liked, it was a beautiful day. I had on a jacket and scarf but took them off because it was warm enough! I had left a cold cloudy morning back in San Jose so I wasn't expecting the weather to be so nice. There was no wind and it was so quiet. I could have sat there for hours!
Part of the reason I went to the beach was so I could take more photos of my sisters quilt. Outdoor light is just so much better for getting true colors in pictures. Plus the beach is just a nicer environment to take them then my living room floor...
A couple shots of the back, the sunlight helps to be able to see the quilt lines much better.
This one inspires me to make a tent out of a quilt...
After the beach I couldn't resist a little trip to my favorite fabric store! I managed to keep myself in check and only got a few things. I'll take some pics and show you those later. All in all the little jaunt to SC was good, I wish I could have stayed longer but I had to head back home so I could go to work. It felt so good to get out and away from my every day surroundings I'll do it again soon!
