I decided to pull out Village of Hawk Run Hollow yesterday. I haven't worked on in it over a year. I'm glad I got it back out because I'm loving it again.

Myrtle Beach

I had so much fun in Myrtle Beach!  The time went by way too fast.  It was so great to see my old friends and meet new ones.  The weather was gorgeous pretty much the whole time I was there...

Only, I didn't get down to the beach much.  I was too busy chatting and stitching.  I worked on Charlotte Clayton a little bit...

And I worked on a very sweet freebie that Tanya (The Scarlett House) designed for us.

I also picked up Christmastide from Tanya's booth (which I'm sad to say I don't have any pictures of) and this sweet little needlework set.

Amy, once again put together a wonderful retreat and I can't wait for next year.  I'll leave you with a picture of the goodies from our registration pack.  It was chock full of great things!  If you're reading this Amy, thanks again for all you do!  I only wish I had gotten more pictures (all that talking and stitching got in the way)! :)

A Little Stitching and an Early Present!

I decided to start Margaret Cottam after I finished Mary Roe. I only stitched a little bit because I wasn't sure if I was liking the linen I chose for it. It's much lighter than the called for linen.

After stitching a motif, I think I'm going to like it. I also worked on Ann Priest a little bit...

My early birthday/Christmas present is the new iPad. My kids had pretty much taken over my old iPad and I really missed having one all to myself. So my very sweet dh took me shopping today. My birthday is still weeks away, but I wanted something for when I go to Myrtle Beach. I'm so happy with it!
Speaking of Myrtle Beach - I leave in only six days now! I can't wait!!
