2015 Pacific Beach Retreat (picture heavy)

It was another fabulous year of stitching, food and friends! The weather was mild and sunny. No rain. Temps in the 60's
 
We had a charity auction and raised $1225 for Pediatric Interim Care Center (local charity that cares for drug-addicted newborns while they detox)
 
We had several sales tables (no vendors, just the stitchers destashing).
And the most wonderful show and tell-so sit back and enjoy the show (not so much tell :)
 
 


























This picture is called Paradise Meadow by Teresa Frank.  It just won 1st place in a competition at NAN.


 
 
Here is what I stitched-Margaret Bendig's 6 sparklers from her online class.

 
And look what I was gifted by a very talented stitcher.  The tray and ort bag match my weekend project, scissors and scissor fob!  It says Stitch On inside the tray. Thanks, Lori!

So much eye candy. The show-and-tell part alone makes a stitching retreat worth visiting.
