Time Flies When You're Having Fun.....

I can't believe it's time to go back to work tomorrow! Our Bahamas trip was wonderful. I've never seen water so beautiful in my life! It went way to fast! It was very secluded and quite place. The pictures just don't do justice to the colors you see in this water. Everything went smoothly - no plane delays or lost luggage-yah. We had got a wild surprise when we arrived at the resort and found out that our next door neighbor was Michael Keaton (Batman)!!!! Talk about being star-struck! He was very low key-we didn't get a chance to talk or hang out. We really didn't want to infringe on his vacation space. So we stayed at a distance and just waved to him or said good morning when we saw him. He did eat breakfast next to us a couple of times which was pretty cool.
The only bad thing about the trip was returning home! The Bahamian custom folks are pretty strict. They took my Dinky-Dye scissors! I had a 4 hour layover in Nassau and was planning on stitching so I just stitched until I actually needed my scissors and then stopped.
I got a lovely surprise when I got home and had a package from BeckySC. She sent me a grab bag of stash and a beautiful Winter needle tin. I can't wait to put it to use. Thank you so much Becky! You put that in the mail quick!
I also visited my LNS and picked up some more stash (3rd pic). I had to buy some new Dinky-Dye's which I love. I also couldn't resist the beach themed silk. BTW, I also couldn't resist redoing my bathroom in Caribbean colors to match the handmade soap dish I bought while in the Bahamas. Those pictures will have to wait for another post on another day.
Last but not least is my finished "Where my Heart Blooms". I starting stitching this while on vacation and finished it yesterday. I had fun stitching this one. I'm not sure how I'll finish it, maybe a pillow or simple frame. Not sure!
Sorry to make it so short, but I feel like I've been on the go ever since I got back from vacation and with today being Mother's Day - I won't be able to slow down until this evening.
Happy Mother's Day to all you lovely Mom's out there! I hope your day is filled with love and pampering!
