So exciting to see that people are starting to be en route. I can't wait to hit the road Saturday morning. And the weather forecast is perfect for the Oregon beaches.


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Darlene:
Donna I am in for the crab DH is not so he can eat bologna.

Darlene, I have you down for the crab.  Too bad DH will be eating bologna...lol!  Maybe the aroma will entice him?  

EVERYONE - I am bringing 6 large green bell peppers and a grocery sack of ripe and green tomatoes to share.  PLEASE do NOT buy any on your way!!!  I am sure Jacy, Karla, and Nancy may be sick of seeing fresh tomatoes, but not everyone is...lol!  

Gini, I also have some jalepenos and cayennes in the bag with Sam's salsa in mind!

Well I had a successful morning and now we have a place booked for my DD's wedding. So now I can leave tomorrow and not have to worry about that. 

Donna I'm in for the crab dinner. I don't think I'll eat out much, Diana, I'll bring some peanut butter and homemade jelly to share.

Hey everyone!  The weather seems to be cooperating....60's and sunny here outside of Eugene.

A side note is that there is a shop going on when you guys are here! http://www.seworegon.com/shops.html

One is Lincoln City's shop, Center Diamond (awesome place for batiks).

Maybe collect some goodies and sign up for prizes!

Jacy,   That sounds great.  I used to make my own jams and jellies but age and arthritis stopped it.  I now buy all my jams from the Amish shop we have locally.  Only 3 - 4 ingredients and I can pronounce every one.  Sugar, fruit, pectin, and citric acid.  Thank you so much.

Pam, isn't Center Diamond in Cannon Beach?  I looked at the shop hop and didn't think there were any nearby.

Snowbird Quilter:
And a warning ---  There was a news report on one of the Portland TV channels that military flares have been washing up on the Oregon beaches.  One on Glenneden beach.  They look like 2" pipes about a foot long, with sealed ends.  If you see one call 911, don't touch it and walk away.  Probably nothing to worry about, but felt I needed to warn you.  Donna B may know more about this.

Patty, I missed this this morning!  No I didn't know about it.  Thanks for the heads-up and I am sure we will all be on the look-out now!

Hi Gang,  Well, I will get to Portland some time today.  My connecting flight was pulling away from the gate as I got there.  My flight from Knoxville was 15 minutes late and I did a half marathon between terminals and gates.  I don't leave Houston until 6 pm and arrive in Portland at approx. 9 pm.

Diana,

I hope by now you're there safely and catching up with Nana. 

I can't wait for Saturday morning so I can be on my way.

Wednesday might be good for Newport and fabric store.  By then some of us might realize we need more fabric. 

I already realise I need more fabric. LOL. I went to the LQS today but remembered my trip so I'll wait 'til I get there. I'll probably be shipping another box home.

I'm getting excited now too!  Although I am not going to the retreat I know I'll be enjoying it virtually with all the good reporters going.  Do you have a name for the group yet?  

All of you going, please have a safe and uneventful trip, you'll be in my thoughts and prayers.  ENJOY!!!!!!

I made it to Oregon in one very tired piece....LOL>   I walked to a McDonalds for dinner and now catching up with you guys.   Diana is still a couple hours out.  She is definitely going to be one tired puppy.   Getting anxious to meet up with everybody.
