This was my first glimpse of the beach. It was exactly as I remembered it from all those years ago. Now, I've been to many beaches since that first trip to Myrtle Beach, but this place is special. It must be the memories associated with it, but I felt like I had come back to a place that I've held in my heart for a long time. I had a very hard time concentrating on stitching with this view outside.
Shortly after arriving, Paulette and I headed down to the beach to check out the
surfers, um...I mean surf.
Hurry Paulette...you let him get away. Oh, I forgot. You have a zoom lens!
Two of my favorite people. My long time friend, Patti on the left, travelled with me. (She's the short one who needed the step stool to climb into that high four poster in Charleston). I can't thank you enough for all the help, and for the fun, Patti. On the right is today's birthday girl, Nicole. Happy birthday, my friend! I had so much fun with you, and I appreciate you helping us navigate. I especially want to thank you for insisting that I needed that red bag :)
Here is the fabulous, Faye. She is one of the nicest gals on the planet. I can't wait to see more of your Sarah Elizabeth. Thank you again for the scissor fob. Just looking at it makes me smile.
Michele is stitching my Jingle all the way on red! Make sure you send me a photo of it finished. It was so fun to meet you.
And then there was this group...the Carolina Connection! Michele and I snuck in there, too. I am not exaggerating, when I say that you are the nicest, funniest, friendliest, and most special bunch that I have ever met. I had a blast being an honorary Carolina girl. I can still hear Lynn laughing in my head , and I start in all over again. Have you started your Williamsburg ort can yet, Sandra? Remember, we promised! Linda, I now have a southern drawl thanks to you. I can't wait to meet up with you all again. Have fun in Tennessee.
I want to thank Amy for inviting me. It was my absolute pleasure to be a part of this fun event. I met some truly wonderful ladies, and I so appreciate the enthusiam and response to my designs. Thank you all very much. I hope you find that Candy Corn!
Ahhh, I could have stayed like this forever...
