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...

View from Tanya's Room

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)! :)

Goodies from the registration pack

  9. Love the pictures, and your Charlotte piece is stunning - I haven't been tempted to buy a new piece in ages, but this is gorgeous - I might have to add it to my stash!!

  10. It was great to see you again. Great progress on your stitching.

  11. I love seeing your progress on Charlotte Clayton as I have been working on it too. Your stitching is so pretty and it is fun seeing areas stitched that I have yet to do myself. Yours is so pretty Nicole!!! I am doing the butterfly higher up today and have the top part done. I am in the middle section on mine. Yours is such an inspiration to me!! Beautiful!!
