I also visited a small town next to Monterey called Pacific Grove, known to the locals as PG. I didn't have my camera with me but I love this little town, lots of cute shops and great places to eat. If we were ever to re-open our bookstore, I would want to do it there.
I found a wonderful yarn shop called Monarch, and went a little bit nuts.
Some Mad tosh, Sublime and Malabrigo...
I want to start in with that blue yarn and make this shawl right away! They had a sample done up in the yarn shop and it was really pretty! Might have to wind this the old fashioned way around the chair back though, because I can't wait until I get home to use my yarn winder.
I ended up not bringing my sewing machine with me, but before I left, I got my latest quilt cut and up on the display wall. Here's a peek.
Bye for now, from Salinas and Monterey!
