Since I don’t have much sewing that I can share yet I will show you what the week was like around here.
We escaped for a few days to Carmel By The Sea with my sister, brother and their spouses. It was beautiful – warm and sunny. Often it is foggy and cold so this was a welcomed change for us.
I was certain that this charming little house must have belonged to a quilter with the wonderful roof. In researching it, we discovered it is called Casita de Lemos after the owner of the home who was an artist, architect, printer and apparently creative individual. I still think it would be a great home for a quilter.
We drove up Hwy 1 on our way north and the ocean views were spectacular. There is one location along the journey that is home to the elephant seals. The males have already headed north, but the females and the juveniles are in the molting stage on the beach. There are seals for as far as you can see.
With our very dry and warm winter, our tortoises came out of hibernation early. That also meant that the female tortoise laid her eggs early too.
She generally lays around seven eggs. We had to leave shortly after the first egg was out and she had them all buried when we checked on her next. Incubation takes 90-120 days.
It’s a busy weekend ahead for us with several birthdays in the family. It should be a fun one.
