Trip to San Francisco and lots of treats

Today we spent the whole entire day in San Francisco. We brought a happy Dash along, he was jumping back and forth between us when he saw us bring out his leash. His name could have been buckaroo, it would have suited him nicely.
We parked under Bay Bridge and walked over to the ferry building. Had lunch outside in the sun and all agreed that San Francisco is a beautiful city on a sunny day like today.

On our way to get gelato from Ciao Bella we stumbled upon Miette bakery and sweet shop. We somehow  ended up with a cake ( had not planed to eat cake today but now we will, love those unplanned events) and some other fun treats. We slowly walked back to our car carefully carrying our beautiful treasure, a bittersweet chocolate cake with Italian meringue icing.

After a visit to our favorite park, where Adel and I always sigh and say something like 'I wish we were still living here in San Francisco' we drove down to what turned out to become my new favorite knitting store. Imagiknit! What a treat. Thanks Denise for the tip!

I got stainless steel and wool yarn from Habu and can not wait until tonight when I get started on my new scarf. Just need to find my knitting needles that I so neatly organized away. Now I can not find them at all...

This was one of the best days ever, Oliver says. We have had a few of them and this was certainly one of them. We have some cake that needs to be devoured so we better get cracking.

cards and ornaments to the holiday market

I have been busy making ornaments for the crafters guild holiday market at Vøyen gård and at Norsk Folkemuseum. My mom is sooooo nice to add my felted santa girls and boys to to her table at both events.

medium guys for table decoration or a small shelf

 larger girls for a shelf 

These gals are sitting waiting to be packaged and shipped off to Norway

Christmas cards went into a big envelope also heading across the Atlantic. Wish I could make the trip to deliver them my self. Maybe next year.

happy kids at the pumpkin patch

We took advantage of short days at school last week and drove to Half Moon Bay to play at the pumpkin patch. It was a beautiful warm afternoon, perfect for jumping in the hay and playing cowboy and indians in the corn field.

Felt hair clips

Here are some of my new hair clips. They are made from wool felt. The felt keeps the clips from sliding out of thin children's hair. You can find the clips at Ten Toes Children's Shoes a lovely boutique in San Carlos.

one can never have enough bunnies

I love toadstools! They remind me of Elsa Beskows ' The Children of The Forest',
my absolute favorite book as I was growing up.
