They have started to prune the grape vines so we had to get out and inspect the job. Good job too!!!!!
Loved this old barn that had a simple Christmas wreath hanging above the door.
We also loved the look of this tree still standing proud.
We stopped for lunch at a new Greek restaurant in the area, browsed through a couple of art galleries and then headed back home. The Channel Islands were clearly visible and just gorgeous. They are miles out, normally shrouded in fog and are not easily seen so this was a perfect day.
Last night was the last Friday Night Sew In over at Heidi's blog and I did get a bit of sewing done. We were suppose to go to two of the grand's birthday parties (combined), but the stomach flu was going around over there. NO THANK YOU!!!!! We will reattempt tomorrow. Anyhoo.....I worked on my Schnibble project for this month. They are small tuffets. Mind you this little pincushion is only 4" big. It was a fun project and I can definitely see myself doing more of these........after I clean up the spilled ground walnut shells that poured out when my funnel flipped out while filling it. GRRRRR. Somehow, I do not think my rotary cutter is going to like running into one of those little grains while cutting. Now I ask, why did I fill it over my cutting table????
The cutting table is now stacked high so let the wrapping begin. I have to make sure that I have accounted for all 21 of the grands before it is too late.
