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

All the stash that I came home with. Most of it I bought lol
 Inside my grab bag. It was perfect!!

 From the freebie table

 Fat Quarters bought at the Quilt store

 Big piece of fabric from the free table. Black velvet with silver metallic spiderwebs

 Praiseworthy Stitches had a table set up and I bought these

 Primitive Hare had a table set up and I bought these

 Bought these from Down Sunshine Lane

 This designer had a table set up 

 Sue Hillis was there and I bought these

 Blackberry Lane had a table set up and I bought these 2 wonderful items

 I bought these 2 project bags by Stitch a Gift and a scissor fob and needle minder by Puffin Company

That is it for my trip. I had a blast and did not want to go home.

Looks like you guys had a great time! I love the project bags you got and those are some great charts you came home with! Saw your new dog's picture on FB - looks like a beauty!

Shelleen, what a great trip you had, and had I been there, I wouldn't have wanted to come back either! It's nice to get a looksy at some of the girls in action and the stash. Wow! Makes my mouth water just looking at the pix! I loved seeing all the stash you got for yourself. My favorites were the Praiseworthy charts - my new favorite designer at the moment, anyway. :)

The scenery and beauty that surrounded you was so nice to see too - reminds me of my childhood during the years we lived in the Rio Grande Valley of TX when we used to spend weekends on South Padre Island in the Gulf. Those were the best years of my life. Thanks for a pictoral recording of your trek!
