Autumn in full swing

I am a complete fan of Summer. The hotter the better and so the cooler temperatures are giving me the blues.  I hate that the days are shorter and there just seems to be less time to do the things we love.  The benefit of cooler temps is sipping my hot tea under a toasty quilt and working on some stitching.  
I haven't taken photos of my current works in progress but do finally have photos uploaded from Dyeing to Stitch retreat.  The first photos are from Ann and Pat's beautiful shop.  It is filled with inspiration. Wall to wall models, easy to find charts and a full wall of threads. Oh the colorful threads always take my breath away.

The following photos are the beautiful projects designed by the very talented Paulette of Plum Street Samplers.  We received two full kits. 1 for Friday night and 1 for Saturday class.  I love them both but of course started Soul Sisters right away.  Paulette is a delight and I really found the weekend a relaxing time filled with stitching and laughter.

Of course, a trip to Virginia Beach requires a walk on the beach.  I enjoy everything about the ocean.  Being that I live in a coastal community I get to the beach several times a week but I truly feel at home by the water.  It's color is soothing as well as the sounds that wash away any worrisome thoughts.

I highly recommend one of Ann and Pats retreats.  You will NOT be disappointed.  They have one coming up in April and I hope to visit again during that time. 
Happy Stitching!

I totally agree. Blue is about the only color we don't see in fall's vibrancy, but it is sure how I feel about it.

Nataly, thank you for sharing a bit of your adventure to the Dyeing to Stitch retreat. Both projects look fabulous. One of the days, I hope to get to one of their retreats.

Glad you enjoyed yourself in my neck of the woods! The beach is one of my favorite things too! Just walking along the water's edge is so relaxing... Looks like you had a great time at the retreat! Thanks for sharing! Hugs!
