About signing our blocks.  What if we each put just our name and where we live on the blocks we're exchanging, then on the one we keep for ourselves we can add the dates and retreat location?  Just a thought.

Nana--

Can you send me the address of the retreat house?  I'm thinking I'll fly into Norfolk because I can get a direct flight from Orlando that will get me there in 2 hrs and there's an airport shuttle that would probably take me to the location.  A flight into Roanoke takes longer and has at least one stop with a layover.  Haven't made a reservation yet, so both options are still open.  Will wait to hear from you, then check shuttle availability.  Thanks.

I will look up the address and let you know.   Also what time would you be getting into Norfolk?   There is also the possiblity that we could pick you up on the way thru Norfolk depending on the time of your flight.

Thanks.  The latest  info I have on flights shows the following choices:  Fri @ 11:05 AM, 5:15 PM or 8:50 PM.  Sat@ 10:30 AM.  If any of these would work with your time frame that would be great, but if not, I'm sure the shuttle will work out.

Well, surely some one is going to try to find that seashell fabric at least...

 

Nancy--

I found the fabric online here:  www.ethelbird.com  There are several pieces in the collection so I copied the images and put them into Quilt-Pro to play with them and have decided to use at least one in my blocks.  Now I'm really excited to order the fabric and get going.

We won't be there that early on Sat.  It is about a 4 hr drive from my house.   We will work something out though if the shuttle service doesn't work.   Check in at the house is 3pm on Sat.   Address is Beach Embassy , 3100 Sandfiddler Rd., Virginia Beach, VA.

Thanks for not putting the brakes on us on the blocks. I appreciate that. Don't fence me in here in Arizona.

Now Marlene, there are no cacti on the Virginia Beach.  There aren't any buttes.  Also no jackrabbits, roadrunners, rattlesnakes, javelina, or tarantulas.  There's got to be a limit to how much freedom we're going to give you with this block!  LOL

There actually are rattlesnakes.  But we don't have any of the other things you mentioned.

The area does have some wooded areas with rattlesnakes but not on the beach itself.   Don't worry they don't come out in public.

List of attendees    All deposits received.    ONE OPENING

Nana, my mom is interested in joining us at the retreat.  She is not a quilter but would love to have something to look forward to. She is 84 and lonely since the death of my dad.    If there is still an opening and another non-quilter would be welcomed, please let me know and I will forward the check for the deposit to you.
