oh, i just love nothern cali, especially the monterey/carmel area and san francisco. the aquarium is so awesome!


I so wished I could have tagged along! It looks like you had a great time! I want the yarn and fabric you came home with!


I'm so glad you had a great time! Don't worry about Little Sir at all! Kids will be kids and I thought he was absolutely charming, sans nap and all! Let's start planning your August outtings now!! ;)


Happy Birthday!!! It looks like it was a fantastic trip!

I love that jellyfish photo.


wow! what a whirlwind week!! looks like you did a ton, bought a ton and had a ton of fun!!!


I am just finishing a Gloria cowl myself, such a great use of sock yarn. And I am so wanting that Martha Stewart 'Cookies' book...glad you had a great visit!


Happy birthday! Those look like some pretty great stash enhancements. When do we get more details about the yarn?


Happy Birthday! It looks like you had a great trip! I'll have to keep some of your ideas in mind for my next trip to SF.


What beautiful pictures from your trip! Happy baking with all those new books, and happy crafting with the others, too!

I'm excited to see the results of that duponi quilt!!

Oh my goodness - I'm totally tempted to make that jellyfish background picture of you & Little Sir my desktop photo - it's just AMAZING!


the jellyfish photo is incredible. and pineapple pie? that, i've gotta try.


Ooo, I want a slice of that pineapple pie!

Happy Birthday!


The pie I was hoping you would teach Kate to make was, carmelized orange tart with blackberry puree - I may just try it myself. Yum! And it was fantastic getting my yarn store break-in with you as a tour guide. Yesterday, Kate introduced me to the LYS in Oakland as we were riding bikes past. I think I can now go into a yarn store without having a panic attack. That's a good thing, right?


Looks like you had a great time. Being from Southern California, I can relate! Happy happy birthday...what fun to celebrate for 8 days!


I love the jellyfish at Monterey. It was wonderful to see you and don't forget that Art Fibers does mail order... you know, in case there was something you forgot to buy.
Sorry Rangsiwan for delivering a napless Little Sir back to the hotel!


Hey, happy birthday. As usual, you really know how to celebrate.

That jellyfish picture is AMAZING. Truly. I can't stop staring at it.


well, i think you will be busy for a while! love the pictures of you and little sir. so sweet.


such lovely photos and goodies! i definitely want to make it to artfibers when we are there in august! promise! :)
Very nice cowl too!


Happy birthday - and oh, those Japanese books!!


that sounds like the BEST trip/birthday celebration EVER!!!!!!!
happy birthday, you!!!
(san fran + pebble = fantastic)


I love that photo with the jellyfish, it's amazing. Looks like a fun trip, and the yarns and fabrics you picked up are gorgeous.

Happy birthday!


It's great to have you back. Happy birthday. Looks like wonderful time and you picked up some fun things. I hope the back is better soon. In the meantime happy crafting and blogging.


What great pics. And if I didn't say it before, happy birthday!

We missed you so much this weekend. I posted an Ode to Nova pic on flickr. I look forward to you, me + kids at the zoo soon.



Happy Belated Birthday!

Looks like such an amazing trip! Glad you got to go! And I'm drooling over your new recipe books! Can't wait to see what you make from those.
