Nana is sharing stories of shopping trips in Paducah. There's BETH from Illinois listening in. Her hubby Bill decided not to come because he's not feeling well.
On the banks of the Mississippi River in north central Minnesota (Brainerd lakes area)
Karla:The first finished project...didn't Ruthann do a terrific job?
Fantastic work Ruthann.
Awesome photos. Thanks Nancy. Everyone looks great.
MNnancy:Here is Leslie's station with her beautiful Janome. No Leslie in sight, though. Haven't an idea where she is. Hey, are we sure she is really a quilter?
Oh so is Leslie another Deb? At least her machine is plugged in.
Hi Elaine and your sister Mary.... I see you two came prepared for lots of fun sewing time....with a laugh or two in between.

Nancy, thanks so much for being such a great reporter. It is so good to see all those wonderful people. Please say hi to all of them from me. Can they see me waving from PA? I love Nana's new hair cut! Diana, Beth, and Darlene look wonderful as does Larry. : ) Sorry to hear Beth's DH is sick. I am really looking forward to a time when I can come to this beautiful location and join in all the fun. Gini and Sam are such gracious hosts and how about our dear Barbara? What a great job she has done. Looking forward to many more photos. Keep up the good work.
Kris:Oh so is Leslie another Deb?
Kris, Leslie sends this to you...
And she says, yes, her machine is plugged in!
Judy arrived... poor dear... she sounds congested. She's being set off at a table to the side. Ruth Ann (SoBuzy) gave her a special glass for her medicinal drinks.
Barbara, hard at work!
You all look so happy! Have a wonderful time.
Karla, love the sign!
Gini, in her pajama's on and a smile on her face, perfect!
Ruthann looks so busy, and look at those giant windows to let in the light, wonderful!
Karla looks like she's emailing instead of sewing, what's up with that?
Beautiful Barbara so serious sewing on one of her dozen UFO's. good girl!
Ruthann, your butterfly quilt is beautiful, love the colors!
Gini, you've grown!
Thanks for the pics Karla
Marie, good to hear from you! Sam sends a kiss!
Well I finally get to see Sam! Hi Sam, you look just about as mischievous as Gini, great match! Look at you Gini, I love your smile!
Leslie, you're as beautiful as I expected and by the look of your smile I think you are going to get along with the Gremlins for sure.
Bonita, nice to put a face to a name, wish I could be there to meet all the new people and see all the old crew from VB. You treat Barbara well, she's very special to us all.
Nancy, not fair, Gini will have to cut under the table.
Hi Elaine, nice to meet your sister, Mary. Watch out for those Gremlins this time.
Nana, are you planning on staying for awhile? That can't be all yours! Diana looks like she can't believe it!
Darlyne, don't you ever feed your guy? LOL
Leslie, I had to go look to see if you took my machine while I wasn't looking! Sigh of relief!
Beth, nice to see you, sorry your hubby is not feeling well, glad you could make it though. Your in for a great time, enjoy!
Everyone looks so friendly and happy!
See, I called it right, Leslie, you put that tongue right back in your mouth and behave yourself! : )
Judy, so sorry you have a cold and they put you off to the side. I think you should drink as much wine as you can and you won't feel as isolated. : )
Barbara doesn't look hard at work she looks like she's resting her eyes! : )
Thanks Nancy for all the beautiful pics! You rock!
