Nana:
Do you think we could hang one wall with just part of the hooks?

I'll get back to you on that.  I will try hanging mine with a quilt top on it from just four hooks, but right now it is wrapped up with a project that I am taking to a quilt retreat Thursday - Sunday.

Yeah, for someone who had never gone on a retreat before, this will be the third one this fall.  I'll be there with 100 other quilters (only 1 of whom I know), so it won't be as cozy and intimate as the Iowa and Washington retreats.  It's only about 90 minutes from home - held at a kids summer camp.

Ha, well one thing I already know is that the camp staff feeds us!  No need to plan meals or bring food.  (I plan to sneak in some snack foods - can't bring wine, though)

Nan, Leslie really means it.  She has it in for me anyway so I'll have to watch my back the whole week.  LOL  On a serious note we are all family and we take care of each other.  I've only met in person Diane and Kris and when we met we felt we'd know each other for a lifetime.  That is what this club is all about, we are family and we take care of our own so come and embrace your quilting family I know I will and can't wait.  I may have to bring along a step stool to get my arms around a few of those gals but I'll do whatever it takes.  LOL

Joyce Brenden:
I'm in Kissimmee and would love for us to try and get together while you're in Dunedin.

Sorry for the delay in responding.  The nor'easter that hit NE caused power outages you wouldn't believe.  I was out for 36 hours.  When power resumed this am I got online to find 767 email so I'm trying to catch up.

I would love to meet you when I get to Dunedin.  Do you shop at Rainbow's end?  I will have my car with me and I'll take my GPS.  Friend me and we'll exchange info.

Marie, its good to see you back online.  Just curious, when power is out like that, what happens to your refrigerator/freezer food?  Do you put it out in the snow (LOL) to keep it cold?   Do you have gas or coal heat?  36 hours is soooooo long.

Maggie, I have gas heat and yes 36 hours is too long.  When I knew the storm was coming I jacked my refrigerator controls way up and didn't open my refrigerator or freezer door the whole time.  when power went back on this morning I checked and everything seems to be ok.  Just trial and error so if you hear of an east coast senior citizen expiring from food poisoning that would be me.  LOL

Glad to hear all was okay.   Were you able to do any hand sewing?  We have a couple of those portable power packs you can use to jump start your car, add a little air to tires, or run small electrical stuff.  Mainly use them for camping to recharge the phones, ipods, and laptops but would use them in a power outage too.  Problem is they lose charge and you have to plug them in to household electricity or the car outlets to keep them full.
