PALS Fall Fling 2012 - Part 1


I just returned home from a wonderful visit to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina ... attending the 15th PALS Fall Fling.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the beach ... any beach .... but I have to say I look forward every year to the PALS Fall Fling ... because of the beautiful beach and also because I get to spend a week with lots of stitcher ... the best of both worlds!

I took lots and lots of pictures ... grab your coffee/tea and visit the beach with me ....
