September Smalls SAL -- Just Made It!!

I made it! I made the deadline for the September Smalls SAL check in. This fun blog SAL has a goal of stitching something small each month. I've used it as an excuse to pick out a fun monthly design to do for the year. Last year was my first year and I really enjoyed the push to keep up and I completed the whole year worth of fun monthly designs. Of course I'm way behind this year but hopefully I'll catch up soon. So for my September piece I finished up my June Snapshot...
(Finish #10) September 30th, 2017
June Snapshot from Pine Mountain Designs
Stitched on 32ct Lambswool Evenweave
Threads are Suggested DMC
Started Sept 11th. Took 9 Days. 
 
Slowly but surely I will catch up.  But Tuesday morning we hit the road for our last vacation of the year. This time we are heading to the east coast for ocean watching. Plus I get to attend the 20th PALs Retreat in Myrtle Beach, SC. I'm excited to see my friends and make new ones. Plus I'll get to shop for stitching goodies from the vendors that setup and stitch with an ocean view. What is better than that!? I've got an assortment of ocean related pieces packed to go with me. Sure not hard to do with all my fun ocean projects I have started haha. As always I'll be posting our journey and I hope you all enjoy following along.

In honor of the first day of October I started new piece today...
It's called Harvest Garden a Mill Hill kit. Hope everyone has a fantastic October!!

I hope you didn't run into any bears on your camping trips!
Have a wonderful time at the retreat, hope you've got enough ocean themed stitching to keep you going. If not, then the shop there might sell some, you never know your luck!

June Snapshot looks great, I love that bear in front of the tent and I think it is a friendly bear just looking for something to eat, lol.
Havel fun during your vacation.
