Myrtle Beach Pals Fall Fling #15

This was the 15th annual Pals Fall Fling and I have gone to 10 of them. I am getting ready to save for next year.
First stop was in Manning, SC to Amy's from Down Sunshine Lane. We all sat out by her pool.
Laurie, Beth, Char, Theresa, me, and Amy

Then Tuesday we left to for Myrtle Beach and this was the view from my room. We stayed at the Springmaid resort.

I walked the beach every morning

One of the nights as the sun was going down.
 The Pier that was part of the resort. It had a gift shop and restaurant at the beginning.

Now onto the stitching fun.




These are all the grab bags that we brought. Each of us brought stitching goodies and extra goodies in them.

Some more stitching friends

RMC page 4 done and Halloween fairy

I finished page 4 of Rocky Mountain Christmas. It has gone back into rotation, for next time.

Then I pulled out Nora Corbett Halloween Fairy. I am afraid I am going to run out of Crescent Colours Dandelion Stem for the wings.

I ended up cleaning some in my craft room. Looks a little better. I haven't sat in there since Spring. Was to hot all summer since I don't have central air.

Then I watched season 1 disc 3 of Party of Five. I also finished listening to Split Second by Catherine Coulter.
I will be starting to listen to Tough Customer by Sandra Brown. I am reading V is For Vengeance by Sue Grafton

Last night I watched the new season of Once Upon A Time and Revenge, both very good. I DVRd 666 Park Avenue and will watch that tonight.

Also on Hallmark channel today is a new show called Home & Family. I will DVR that Mon-Fri and am looking forwards to it.

Everyone have a great day
