California Fun

While I watched the 
runners last weekend, 
I took advantage of the warm weather,
quiet surroundings,
and embroidered on 
Crabapple Hill's pattern,
 Sweet Violettes

It's amazing what you can 
accomplish when you are alone
in the hills of Sonoma, with only
300 runners and crews.

With the coloring all done,
 it was pretty easy stitching.

But, beware, a dangling french knot 
can always be a threat.

Besides waiting and stitching,
Running Man and I took some extra time to enjoy some 
fabulous meals.

The bread and pastries

  and sandwiches
Tartine's Breads in San Fransisco.

Italian dishes at
Bottega's in Yountville,
owned by Micheal Chiarello.

And we can never leave the city
without stopping by Yang Sing's for
 dim sum.

It was a perfect weekend
get away!

Until Next Time-
