A Bit of This and a Bit of That

Over the past weeks, I've done a bit of this and that...
Embedded in the usual work-live-commute, there was some stitching, 
some visiting & celebrating
and my beloved Big Sur!
There have been wedding celebrations, weddings, baby showers and meeting other babies...
there has been Life!
There was also a new set of wheels, a huge necessity after 239, 297+ miles on the old one!
I am deeply, deeply grateful and appreciate all the little workings of my new ride!

Morning fog, heading to work
 
Perhaps, flowers in the garden?

Breaking Bread to celebrate the newlyweds at their reception!
Fabric stash tiny quilt, maybe 12-14 X 12-14

A Goodnight Moon gift set...welcome new little one!

Game, Story. Song quilt for the 4 year old "big' brother!
Passing on J.'s stocking, made by my Mama years ago.  Now belonging to her namesake, my great-niece!

A visitor from next door!

Welcome to the tribe!  A stocking for a groom!

Stocking for my friend's newest granddaughter. You saw her quilt recently :)

Enjoying a meal (and the pickles!) at our old favorite deli with two incredible elders.
Yum...our childhood bakery, next to the deli
These cakes bring back so many memories of family celebrations!








We traveled to a wedding, seeing friends & family...children and babies...
elders and buddies.  Tribe. Wonderful!
Came home Highway 1, through Big Sur...our tradition.
I couldn't help but think of Grace as I saw these grasses.  I do not recall ever seeing so many clumps growing along here in past visits.  It was so amazing the way they caught the sunlight...the way the sunlight danced on the water.  Man, I love this place!









Back home, my neighbor's trees and our local birds sustain me as I head back to work.

I hope you all are finding beauty where you can, appreciating what you can and
holding one another in gentle, loving hearts and arms.
