A Busy Saturday and a bunch of Pictures

It was sort of busy on Saturday and we were out the entire day
- and Sunday was way more laid back - but let us start with Saturday....

The garage sales, estates sales and flea markets were a total bust and even I couldn't spend money on something useless!!! What's up with that!!! Dale, Rico and I ran around all morning looking and finding nada - we did however visit St Dominic's in lower Pacific Heights - a beautiful church built in the 1920's - in a very high Gothic style - here is a snap of the front -

and here are some shots of the interior....

A panel from one of the confessionals -

a couple of the confessionals



The large back window -
It is a really lovely church and one I hadn't been in.

From here we went on over to the Quilt show - Here are a few of the quilts that were displayed -





I have a bunch more and will post them during the week -

From the quilt show we ended up at lunch - at the Ramp on...


It is a outside restaurant right next to a boat slip and this was our view out across the waters


It was a perfectly beautiful sunny day - and sitting out by the bay was really nice!!!!

Sunday started off with breakfast to Los Jarritos for a delicious plate of chirizo and huevos. They make fresh tortillas all day long and serve them with all the meals - just scrumptious!!!!!!

After a super breakfast we headed over to our little farmers market.. and here are some snaps...





We got some brocolini from this guy...


and got it home....

steamed with some butter - delicious!!!!

On the stitchy front I finished up Square 10 and have moved on to square 11 - here is a an overall snap of VoHRH....

I am sorry about the crapazilla snap but you get the idea.
The linen is not this eggnog colour at all!!

I will wrap it up for the day - more to come tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by and all the nice things you had to say about the box I made for Jill.

Take care,
edgar

Great photos! Love those quilts.
You'll be finished with VOH soon. It looks fabulous.
I see my directions helped with the blog list. I'm glad.

Ah, St. Dominic's...that's my church when I go. I love the details inside and out. I miss my neighborhood market! I can't wait til April when it is supposed to start back up. Good progress on your VoHRH...only 2 more blocks...woo!

Sherry said...

Edgar, I'll have you know that I don't do anything on the weekend at all, but on Monday I read your blog and then pretend like I did the things you did, went the places you went, stitched the things you stitched....whew! I am exhausted by everything we accomplish in those two short days! And I just love the things we do, the places we go, and the things we stitch! OK, taking a nap now.

What great photos Edgar! Looks like you had a lovely weekend. Your VoHRH is looking lovely, this is so going on my wishlist.
Have a great week

What a great couple of days! Your VoHRH is looking so awesome. I so want to stitch this. Well, truthfully, I want to have it finished, I don't really want to stitch it! Unfortunately, the only way I'm going to get it is to do it..... Yours is inspiring.

You lead the most exciting life...this is what I saw this weekend: the inside of our church - not as ornate or lovely as the church you showed pictures of, but nice anyway...and I saw the inside of walmart and their selection of paltry limp vegetables...not the lovely sunwashed vendor tents at an open air market. Gotta laugh... :o)
But it was a sunshiney weekend and life is good anyway!

YOU GO on the Village...man it is so close! You are my hero!!!

Dianne said...

Beautiful job on your Houses! You're getting SOOO close to the end now! It looks like you had a great Saturday; beautiful pictures!

Wendy said...

Great pictures - I almost felt like I went along with you! You must have been a photojournalist in another lifetime :-D

Brigitte said...

I didn't know where to look first - the church, the quilts, the market or Village. What a wonderfull stroll through your city.
