Deb and I have been planning all week.  Had a shopping trip to JoAnns with a Stone Colld Creamery Ice cream thrown in a couple of days ago. ;o)  I have decided on one UFO and one ongoing project that I was working on last year, my big king quilt with topic of "things I love".

We are going to miss Judy and Wendy.  We look forward to meeting Spud whom we have heard so much about, and the other newbies.

We plan to leave Sunday morning so hope to meet up with some of you around noonish, if not a little before.  I'm thinking it is about a 3 hour drive from here, but don't remember for sure.  So many things to pull together.  Deb has been cooking special things for her Dad to enjoy while we are gone.

We have to watch our granddaughter, and Deb's niece play Soccer for an hour or so tomorrow and also plan to fill up with gas.  At this point I feel panic.  Can we pull it all together on time and not forget something major?  Well, I guess we'll soon see.  Safe travels everyone.

Kris

How far are you from the airport?  Luckily I am only about 10 minutes from ours.  My first flight is at 7:30am.   Which airline are you flying?

THe airport is 1.5 hrs away and my flight leaves at 630. I have to be there 1.5 hours before the flight. Sucks for DH driving back.

On flight to Seattle. All my flights changed when I got to the airport. I'm now on Delta.

My original flight was delayed 2.5 hours so they had to do a ticket reissue. We're flying over Milwaukee right now. The wifi on the plane is not very good. Just over three hours until we land.

Hopefully they are!!!  I just checked and AlaskaAir has multiple flights  today with open seats still available.  If not, maybe Judy E could pick her up on the way.

I am just about packed, need to do a little touch-up on the house today before Nancy and Randy arrive this afternoon.  I am so excited about them coming for the night on the way to Leavenworth.  I haven't heard, but no doubt they had a great time at Gini's last night!  My little sewing area doesn't compare to Gini's studio...in many ways (lol) so doubt Nancy will be too impressed with that.  I am getting excited!!!!  Time is almost here that we will all be together and giving each other real {{{hugs}}}.  YAY!

Oh, and as for a name, the only thing that came to my mind was the "Yodeling Quilters"...how lame is that!  I am sure someone will come up with something better (at least I hope so)...

Oh, like that response. Mom just went to the clinic, she thinks she might have shingles. Egad, I hope not. Dad and I have had shingles. Nasty. And of course she will still come :-)
