Kathy ,you are to organized ,LOL I still have most of my things packed up form the beach retreat ,but not all. You may want to add a table light to your list, I have found that these are really helpful at the tables cause the lighting just isn't always enough that is in the houses. If you need one let me know I have an extra one I can bring. Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
I'm bringing Sunshine, my Ott Light. She's a floor model, very thin and stylish, and she has roller skates on her feet. (Okay...yes...I am crazy and humanize all my stuff). I think the lighting is fairly good at Sara's so we won't need too many. We don't want to blow her circuits. lol
Quilt as you go with Sharon. All you would need is 4 sandwiched and quilted squares, trimmed to about10-12 inches square, plus 3/8 yd of fabric to use as the sashing - and your walking foot.
Diana has graciously agreed to teach a binding class and I will be the first to sign up for that! I have to say I'm surprised at the number of people wanting in on these classes. I thought I was the only one needing help.:
Free Motion with Gini and Barbara: Bring at least an 18" square sandwiched fabric (light color) and dark thread to practice on. Bring your walking foot and darning foot for your machine as well.
LaJuan Sukochi Lee and her DH are coming to the area during our retreat. She is looking for someplace to stay. Sara, I gave her your information to friend you. I thought perhaps you might have a cabin for rent in the area or know of someplace close by. If anyone has a solution or place for them to stay, please let me know.
Is it June yet?????????????
Everyone is PIF as of today. Got your check, Melody.
There will be 22 quilters for blocks. Mine are done just need to sign them. My handwriting is terrible so I was going to use embroidery but it's too big from what I could figure out so a pen it is.
Mary:Is it June yet?????????????
No sadly it's not but my kindergarteners are acting like it is. Their little bodies are at school but their minds are not connected anymore. Oh Lord give me more patience please. And I know exactly how they feel. I've already started to take down the decorations in the room. All I can think about is the retreat and having school end. But "there's miles to go before I sleep......" So I'd been get to it. Have a great day everyone.
In addition to the eggs, I can also bring my iron and ironing board if we are in need. I also have a humongous cutting matt that we could put on a table and if I can locate them, I also have things to put tables up on to get them to the correct height for cutting.
Let me know if you all would like me to bring or not bring whatever. Thanks!!
Thanks Barbara, I think I will be okay as my machine has good lighting and Mary said we might blow circuits if we have too many, so I will take my chances and just move outside if I need extra light for something,
mimi, i only help out at school one day a week, half in the second grade and half in the third grade classes. oh my, i could not be a teacher. this time of year is awful. those kids can't concentrate on anything.
to top it off there's a new girl in the third grade class and she is a pistol. previous to her, all the girls were very calm and went about their business. now she has the entire third grade stirred up. add that to their combined inability to concentrate and third grade was fun today. i'm not known as the mean gramma for nothing. the shenanigans stopped, their work was done, and the room was, mostly, quiet, while their teacher taught reading. i was still getting wary looks from some of the kids at wil's soccer practice later in the afternoon.
gini in north idaho

I can not imagine kids being wary of you....LOL> But good going getting them to settle down.

This message is for LaJuan. I replied to your message on Monday but haven't heard back from you. I just want to make sure you got it because sometimes in the past people have not received my messages. I'm sure it's my operator error if that's the case, but I need you to let me know the dates you and dh will be at the retreat so I can find you a cabin in the resort. Looking forward to meeting you all!
