I stopped by the Aurora Outlet Mall before stitching with the ladies yesterday. The Vera Bradley store was heaven.
I took my camera, but when I took it out to take photo's, the battery was DEAD.
I found lots and lots of beautiful things and decided on the Villager Purple Punch, it was 72.00, the outlet price was 45.00.
I plan on going back at the end of the week to take Kellie shopping and to pick up a matching accessory.
Thank You for all the suggestion's on Vera bags in comment and all the emails I received
"Stitchers are the best"
I am a happy stitcher ;0

Peace Inside by Midsummer Night Designs
stitching on 36ct PTP Truffle w/ GA threads
I am planning on going to The Inspired_Needle tomorrow (Sunday) to stitch with the gals again.
Then on the 2nd there is a Welcome_Stitchery GTG, so if you can make it, let me know and I will look for you.
Edited to add:
Where is the best place to get a Vera Bradley for my WIP's??
And are they called totes for sewing stash or are they something else??
Going to these GTG's a girl needs something pretty to put her WIP's
Thanks in advance for your help

That's the only picture I have to share. I didn't want to take a photo of someone who didn't want it posted on a blog. I don't plan on getting stuck with needles my next stitching visit, lol
I did some stashing too
