stash etc.

 Hello all,

Wanted to share my wonderful stash with everyone.
We went to Virginia Beach for spring break and I visited my favorite stitch shop, Dyeing to Stitch. I bought some patterns of Shepherd's Bush ( in the back that goes with the box. Can't wait to do that one.) Lizzie Kate, Blackbird, and Little House Needleworks. Also some crescent colors. Love it all! My friend, Erica, picked me up at the hotel. She lives about 50 minutes from there.We headed over and had a great time. She bought some stash as well. How can you not when you go to a fabulous shop like Dyeing to Stitch? Their retreat is in October and I can't wait for it.
This is the finished bookmark i made for my dad's birthday. Sorry the picture is sideways but you can still see how I finshed it. I took it this way to put in my book. I like how it turned out.

To end this post here is a picture of the sunrise in Virginia Beach. If you look closely (which I just noticed) you can see a tiny ship in the background. How cool that is! To me, there is something so calming about the water. One of my most favorite things.Two of my most favorite things is stitching by the water. Heaven!!

Hopefully I can do a quick post of a finish on Thursday.

Happy Stitching!!

I'm pretty sure I've been to Dyeing to Stitch.

I was staring at the large version of your sunset picture, I could feel that familiar beach feeling all the way down to my toes. Stitching on the beach sounds heavenly, indeed!
