Annette, I think what I saw from Judy was we can get in by 9am, but I'm not sure about that. I plan to get there around noon, if I leave  home by 8am, factoring in a stop at the quilt shop in Cameron, MO.! Please bring the waffles or pancakes. I love them.

Hi guys! Yes, towel & bedding are funished. I will be there at 9:00 am on Wednesday, so you can arrive anytime after that. I told her we would be ready for her to check us out at 3:00 pm Sunday. I don't think they had an ironing board. I was planning on bringing mine, and will ask Sue if she can bring hers. I have a tabletop one I can bring also. I will also bring a large cutting mat. Here is short list of things I'm bringing    cutting mat, rulers, iron, ironing board, extension cords, surge protector, and many more things (probably a whole car full!) Can anyone think of anything else?

Thea, are you bringing the Keurig? Also, don't you plan on lifting a thing, we will help you load and unload!

It's supposed to be really warm here this weekend - I think the high today is 97. I didn't see the weather last night, so I'll have to let you know. I think we will need the AC though!

Can't wait to see everyone. You all drive carefully!!!

Judy

Judy, thanks for the weather report. Helps to decide on clothing for the trip. Now I won't have to pack my bikini to wear around the house! Lol!

OK I'm in the final stages of getting ready.  Check is written and sewing material ready to put in car.  Just a few errands today and laundry, then I can pack the clothes and then the car to be on the road early tomorrow morning.  YEAH,!

So, It's "tomorrow" already.  Are we going to get to see any photos this evening?

Good question Patti.   Maybe they have quilted each other into cocoons.

Still no word from the Iowa crowd?  I guess they are being serious quilters.

Or they didn't bring a news reporter.

Internet very sketchy, and no reporter. I forgot my camera, Internet is so slow we get tired of trying to download pictures. Your only chance of seeing pictures is if Thea posts when she gets home. She's the only one with a camera. Sorry, everyone.but, what happens at Walnut Place stays at Walnut Place.

Thanks for the update, Elaine!  How is Thea feeling after her surgery?  Are you all getting a lot done?  Safe travels home tomorrow!
