But that means we'll all have to start earlier...but, then too, it will give me time to hit the casino at Midnight and see if I can win any of their prizes.  I'll probably be babysitting as usual, though.

Sounds like I need to make sure my family has some movies to watch on new years eve, some action movies, car chases, etc that they love and I don't care for. And lots of snacks and popcorn. Then I'll be free to head to my sewing room and sew and sew. Well it's a good plan, hopefully it will work .

Oooooh! I would love a cyber retreat. I should be home by then. Think I will be away from my machine for a good ten days so I will be more than ready to sew sew sew!

we could do a cyber retreat, if everyone has a camera hook-up

Nana:

gini:

Judy and nancy, you only need to stay up until nana's new year.  You can be in bed by 9:01 or 10:01 your times.

No no no    You have to be up at midnight in YOUR time zone.....

 

Wait!  Then Nanna will go to bed and won't be up for my New Year. 

It would be a very small PJ party by the time I ring in the New Year.

Well being on central time, I would have to stay up till 2:00am at least to see everyone's beautiful work. Bring on coffee and snacks! Sorry with the bubbly, I'll be asleep by 10:00.

Kath, not to worry!  Nana has a reputation for being an all-night quilter.

For a planned event, she will definitely be up to 'see the New Year in' all the way through to pacific time!

I guess if Nana can stay up until 3am, I should be able to make it to midnight. All I can do is say, I'll try.  But being the opposite of a night owl.......

I'll look forward to seeing more details of this event posted. For now, we're off to have breakfast with George's daughter..

Usually I'm the only one up at midnight.  Even the dog goes to bed!

Nana:
We would each need to stay up till midnight in our time zones.   I know I will most likely still be up at midnight in your time zone....LOL>   We should post a pic of our completed project at midnight or whatever stage you have accomplished at midnight.

I'll be up at midnight but I probably won't be posting any projects. I get off work at 1130. I'll ring in the new year with DH then probably read and check in on everyone here.

Good point.  What time is this retreat/party starting? - and stopping?  Is it for 4 hours, 8 hours, 24 hours, 48 hours?  I suppose it could be an "open house" - come and go as you can.  I'll have to think what project I want to work on as we greet the new year.

I have a challenge quilt to make and turn in by January 16th. Perhaps I'll work on that.

Considering London is 7 hours ahead of me. I'm in Alberta, You probably could have a nap after your celebration and then celebrate across North America with everyone else.

DH and I booked our cabin and I got confirmation that my reservation is confirmed!  :)  

Now just to figure out which projects to take!!  My MQ9 is still in pieces so that might be a good one.
