Kathy - Actually, Bill would not be using the cane if it wasn't for his back problems. Hopefully, things will get taken care of within the next year.
Kathy and Barbara will be rooming on the main level. The rest of us will be on the bottom level but there is a very good ramp down there. It's all handicap accessible. The inside stairs are not at all steep. It's only getting down to the lake that the need for stairs comes up although I suppose you could walk down the yard. IDK
Maddie and I are bringing the accuquilt Go so if you want 2 1/2 inch strips you are welcome to use it to cut to your heart's content. warning you may never want to rotary cut strips ever again. we will bring our other dies as well for those who wish to try things out. Maddie will accept any fabric anyone wants to donate to her for her mission. We have a good collection of flannels for Beth to take home to do rag quilts. others who need donated fabric to make quilts for her please remind me so i will be sure to pack you a good size box full. We live close enough and have a minivan if anyone needs be to bring anything special. just speak up! I have my bags of cuttings for the pet bed filler, forget who wanted those. i am bringing Maddie's machine as well as mine so she will not use it all the time so if any one needs to borrow it,, again just say so!!

Nan:if anyone is good at making biscuits and gravy for breakfast
I'm not sure what you mean about biscuits and gravy cause I grew up in PA, but I make a great sausage biscuit. I also make a tasty creamed beef on baking soda biscuits. Is that like biscuits and gravy?
Thanks for the offer Andrea, I live in Lakeland but I am going on to Indiana to visit my son after the retreat. However, it is good to know because we might want to hook up some other time. I am hoping they do the VB again as I would love that, but found out about it too late this year. I just plopped my b... down in a chair because I couldn't walk another step and there was Mary and I heard her mention a retreat and started asking questions. I don't even recall who she was sitting with at the time.
OK guys, I may be a Yankee but I have been in the south long enough to understand biscuits and gravy, so, Mary, put me down for 2 breakfasts and I will do a couple of egg casseroles for one and something with sausage gravy and biscuits for the other one, OK!
Everyone ,biscuits and gravy are one of those comfort foods that once you try them your hooked. I use to make mine from scratch but have gotten lazy in my old age and now used canned biscuits (grands) and packaged gravy ,its still yummy. I like mine with eggs on top to ..Barbara
I definitely agree and have gone to the canned biscuits also, but I still make my sausage gravy from scratch. Eggs we can do to get more protein even thou I use LOTS of sausage in my gravy.
Kathy sounds wonderful can't wait .Barbara
I'm too late joining QCA to go to this retreat, but I would love to have more information for next year or the year after. Sorry to post here, but I cannot find an email address for Mary anywhere! Mary, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!

I'm a transplanted Yankee and we always called biscuits and gravy...dessert...lol After Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, that really was dessert....and I'm a Yankee thru and thru even though I now live in East Tn. We also ate pancakes with sausage gravy instead of butter and maple syrup(the real stuff). I was raised in the country on a farm and these are comfort foods for me. I'll help out with any breakfasts where needed. Sounds like lots of breakfasts are in the works. YUMMMMMMM
