Nancy, that sounds like a great idea, I've never been to MN, I love shop hops , don't think I could do the whole state but a couple of the regions sound like alot of fun... maybe  we should have the Midwest Retreat  there next year  sounds like you have lots of neat shops there..Barbara

Jeanine, the quilt for the woman with breast cancer is beautiful.  My DH served 6 years in the Marines after he graduated from the Navel Academy.

Love both of your quilts, they are gorgeous.  One of these days I'll be able to quilt that well.

Karla, Ginny and Ms M.  Here is someone who has us all beat when it comes to distance to a quilt shop. 

Thanks for the welcome, everybody.  Gina and Robin, to answer your questions:  I live in a fairly large Yup'ik Eskimo village on the southerly end of the Bering Sea coast called Hooper Bay.  It's about 500 air miles from Anchorage.  We don't have any roads, and, with only a few exceptions, the village lacks running water and sewer, but the community is pretty large- about 1200-1300 people.  As you can see from my avatar picture, it's not "postcard Alaska," but we've been pretty happy here for thirteen years.

that paragraph should have been in quotes.  It's from Mary Ellen, I think from Hooper Alaska?  In the summer she goes to the Midwest and visits the quilt shops.

I did work on a quilt last night. I got blocks sewn into 2 rows and then........... yeppers I did it! I sewed the 2 rows together! I'm soooo... into instant gratification when I sew or craft and that may be one of the reasons I obsess till it's finished. Quilting is teaching me patience but I still couldn't wait to see what it was going to look like and I really like it!!

Patti I guess you win the distance race!  No roads?  How do you get around your community?  Tell us a little bit about everyday living there, if you don't mind my asking?  I'm really curious.

Not me, that's Mary Ellen.  I live 6 miles up a dirt road, 8 miles from the nearest town of about 400.  My car is either dusty or muddy half the year.  Closest quilt store is about 22 miles.  (and it's a great quilt store, what else do we have to do around here but quilt, hunt, fish or ride horses? I just quilt.) Or I could go south about 90 miles. 

Well, got to go to work, and taking the smelly house garbage to toss in the dumpster at work.  Our bear proof garbage cans haven't arrived yet.

WOW! How do you get your mail? How do you get your supplies? It really sounds awesome and looks like beautiful country!!! Would love to hear more. My son was stationed in Alaska and wants to go back - I have never been there but would love to see it.

Patti, is that your daughter?  Sorry, looks like I've been missing a lot over the weekend.  Been spending time with my dear cousin Gracie who is in the last phase of her life.  They are keeping her comfortable with morphine so she will have a pain-free death.  She opted not to have treatment and looks like the doctor was right, he predicted 6 months and here we are six months later.  He only gave her a few more months of life had she taken the treatment.  She had the same tumor that Kennedy had.  Don't mean to be morbid, just trying to explain where I've been.
