Back Home Again in Indiana.........

The PALS Fall Fling was a great way to spend four days.  We stitched, we participated in exchanges and games and on occasion laughed until we cried.  I met some great new friends and had a wonderful time.  Thanks to AmySC at Down Sunshine Lane for organizing the event.  She worked so hard to make sure everyone had a great time. 
I didn't get as much stitching done as I thought I would.  I brought about 10 projects with me and got one and a half complete
(apparently I'm easily distracted). 
Our base of operations was the Springmaid Beach Resort on the very South end of the Grand Strand.  Here is the view from my room.

Wednesday was a day of stitching and getting settled in.  I checked into my hotel, got some snacks for the room and then spent the evening stitching.
Thursday evening was the Fall/Halloween exchange.  Here is the piece I stitched and finished for the exchange.


Beth (aka hipgrammy) chose my piece from the table. 



There were lots of beautiful designs to choose from for this exchange. 









It didn't take me long to choose my piece from the table.  Karen (aka Badonkadonk) stitched and finished this lovely pillow.  I'm not sure who is cuter......us or the pillow.  :-)


I'll be posting more from the Fall Fling soon.  It was a fun filled 4 days and I can't wait to show the other goodies I came home with.  Stay tuned!

Keep on stitchin' on,
Nan
