Well, Amy is safe at home now. We had a fun-filled weekend with glorious weather! We stayed in a very cute little hotel in San Francisco that I must recommend: Cornell Hotel. It’s a French hotel in a great location just above Union Square. They even have a resident Golden Retriever that escorts you to your room and understands French!
Okay, I have to confess that I only took one photo the entire weekend. Here it is:
There’s Amy with her frozen slushy matcha drink with little mochi squares on top. We got those at Cafe Hana in Japantown, where we also hunted down craft books and cute stationery at Kinokuniya. We also got incredible 15-minute shiatsu massages from some young lanky Asian boy and had dinner with cancer-killing Megan.
So anyway, Saturday we hit the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market where we enjoyed Blue Bottle Coffee and sampled June Taylor jams. We met Thuy there, whom we dragged around downtown with us (she has quite a few incriminating photos of the day). After the market we went to the yarn mecca that is Artfibers. Now, I know a lot of you out there hear about Artfibers all the time, but really, you can’t know how amazing the place is without actually GOING there. The web site cannot accurately reflect how luscious and yummy and addictive the yarns are!
I am getting kind of boring with my blow-by-blow account. I’ll just say that we also hit Britex Fabrics, saw a man wearing all orange and yellow and carrying an orange and yellow Hello Kitty messenger bag (yes, he was dressed more colorfully and ridiculously than me!), and went by Kinokuniya in San Jose, too. Sadly, we missed Rachael, the Full Thread Ahead launch party, and the Mike Doughty show, but one can only do so much.
I have to go fold laundry now, so I will leave you with a shot of my new jam and fabric:
I hope you all had a weekend as fun as mine!
