Back Home!

We made it back home again late Saturday night. Whew, what a long drive, especially through so much rain and even sleet! The wind on the highways was incredible, at times it felt like it was moving the truck right off the road.

We had a fantastic time in Charlotte and even got to the ocean in Myrtle Beach. It was a little chilly but sunny so that made up for it and walking along the ocean is just amazing. We did a ton of shopping ~ at some outlet malls, Target, Kohl's, and of course Hobby Lobby and A.C.Moore. While I didn't find a ton of cross stitch goodies, I did pick up some great Lori Birmingham kits that were on clearance, for a sewing box, needle case, scissor fob, etc. And I also found some lovely fake-antique sewing accessories for my new sewing case that were 50% off. I love a good sale! Best of all I got a huge amount of my Christmas shopping done.
Here's a pic of Kelly and I on Thursday morning at Myrtle Beach.
And of course Miss Maisie, wearing the new coat that I knitted up for her. She's such a cutie and a ball of energy.

Oh, I missed you, Wendy! :)
Those are lovely pictures, it sounds -and seems- like you had a great time in NC... aaah, NC, I'm all nostalgic now! :)

It's good to have you back Wendy :) Oh, and I'm still very eager to see the needleroll you stitched for Christine! LOL! Did you take any picture before you sent it over? :)

Glad to hear that you had such a wonderful time, and got to do your Christmas shopping too! You got me curious as to your 'fake antique' needlework accesories. Lovely pictures of you and your family members - furry and otherwise :o)
