Oh, Maire, OMG!. YOU are going to be a great grandma. How exciting is that??? Oh, we need pictures. Oh, WOW!
Mary, pretty quilt.
Thea how are you feeling? Hope your pain is at a manageable level. I haven't seen pics of you all bundled up with quilt, and a heating pad. Thanks be to God.
I'm home. missed all you before i got out of Branson, thought about turning around, but i knew i had put on my last pair of clean undies this morning, so came on home.
I will see you all again Wed or Thurs.
so quiet here, miss ya'll
Barbara and Gini, i wont forget my hair cutting things
OMG Marie, That is great. Hurry,hurry, Ginny
While some of our group are out supporting the economy of Branson, some of the rest of us went out to soak up the warm sun and stretch our legs. Here are some sites we saw. We couldn't talk Ruth Ann into scrambling up into King Kong's arms. It would have made a great picture. (I'll bet Leslie would have done it.)
On the banks of the Mississippi River in north central Minnesota (Brainerd lakes area)
Nancy, you girls look wonderful. Ruthann if Nancy and i could shimmie up on that horse, i dont see why you couldn't have done the same with king kong lol
Barbara:HI all ,sorry i missed the skype request , I retired early to my room to get my legs up ,they were aching and swollen ,so need some elevation time for the legs, they are still little sore this morning ,but not as bad as last evening.
hope you're better. I saw your Skype call this am and tried to answer but we were disconnected. I hope to connect later this evening after I get my dinner. Probably in another half hour. I'm at work so that is subject to my patient load. My schedule is done so it's just the ED to contend with.
Too bad Leslie had to go but it was nice seeing her.
MNnancy:Sometimes Gremlin stunts aren't discovered until later in the day. Leslie discovered one of her cats has a new embellishment.
I love the whiskers on that kitty. Hopefully he gets to keep them.
Marie:OMG, OMG, it's happening, the baby is coming, they left for the hospital an hour ago!!!!!!!!! I'm going to be a great gramma! Going to Boston, will send pics as soon as I can! Oh my, oh my, oh my!
Woo hoo Marie!
MNnancy:Here's another! Mary completed a mystery quilt from her guild.
I love it Mary. Pretty fabrics. WTG
The QCA website gremlins are getting me today. Errors again.
Mary, your quilt looks wonderful, when i left you were frogging
Some of the shoppers are back. Here are a few of the purchases...
Judy T. tried to wrestle these from her hands.
The next is for a baby quilt.
(oops, sorry about the face blur, Barbara)
Karla will have fun with the "pops" and her new book!
Waiting for a few others to get back.
Forgot to mention that Nana is learning to knit at this retreat. Is there a "Knitters Club of America"?
More shoppers are back!
Wait til you see the blocks she's going to use with these solids.
She was able to maintain self control at the quilt shop and simply purchased backing fabric. Did we mention there's a wine tasting room in town?
She found some fabrics that go with other projects currently under construction.
Table mate Karla is eyeing that colorful batik! Watch out, Bonita!
Have you noticed that there is a avatar gremlin?
A person started a forum named Fabric, Fabric, Fabric today. You probably saw it. After that the avatars disappeared.
I went in and took my name off my profile. Took out my bio, too. Of course, if this person is not legit, it was probably too late. I hope they are legit as I sure would like some of that fabric. But how many 92 y.o. ladies do you know that have 700 yards of fabric to get rid of??
The girls are having fun dressing Gini. The cardinal earrings and finger pincushion are from Barbara.
The sunglasses are from Gretchen. Can you see what's printed on the lenses?
