I think FaceTime is an apple product

we made it to branson with a bumpety thump in Denver, and a bumpy ride to springfield. Other than that it was smooth sailing.

Maggie - we are going to be traveling the same route!  I will PM you with my cell number.  I will leave Channahon about 5:00 and will be near Springfield around 7:00.

I can't get to PMs today, only groups. You can send it to my email quiltinmaggie@gmail.com. Once you respond I will delete this post. Happy and safe traveling!

We're all excited.Nana and I are in West Memphis, Arkasas.   We will be in Branson later today.  We have started out fun early.  Since leaving Nana' s house on Thursday, we have been to 3 quilt shops.  We will have to see how many are between here and Branson.  LOL

My DH suggested I go on up today! ...

Diana and Nana, if you are going up Highway 65, there's a good one just north of Harrison.

If you are in West Memphis, we will be close to each other....

How exciting, I love reports from the retreats!!! And Branson is my old stomping grounds spent every summer there growing up, and The Lake of the Ozarks. I am a K.C. Mo. Girl.  You all be very safe!!!

We're 3 hours away! Someone is sleeping in our room so we'll stay in a different I one tonight.  How does it look for having access tothe sewing room early?

Well talk about early birds - save me a table near by.  I'll leave as soon as I wake up  (usually 3:00a) and dress and have one cup of coffee!

I drove through so got here early as well.  Sam says we should get the sewing room by around 11 tomorrow as a group will be using it in the morning.

Well, the worst of our drive is behind us.  Traveling 20 mph on the interstate is not fun.  We were only able to hit one of the four shops we'd hoped to get to, so that leaves more money to spend at Quilts & Quilts in Branson.  We're in Osceola, Iowa, this evening.  Will leave bright and early in the a.m. and stop and see Barbara on our way down.  See you all Sunday afternoon!  A glass of wine would be welcome!

PS - we should start a retreat pictures thread in the regular forums.  Groups are too hard to get to.
