Mimi and Barbara - I know you guys can get the blocks done.  Try for a couple a day and in no time they will be done

Now that I am back from Santa Fe (had a great time with my college girlfriends)  I am REALLY getting excited about the retreat.  I need to cut something to bring to sew assuming any sewing gets done :) - and find my breakfast casserole recipe.  I have a "can" of coffee to bring and will also have some of the tea bags as DH and I drink lots of ice tea ( usually not sweetened with sugar).  Need to sign blocks before I forget - I was lucky enough to get them done before my Santa Fe trip. 

Mary - You have been quite busy and I know that whatever you decide about the "door prizes" will work out.  Can't wait to see what we will get!!!

Gini,    Not a problem from this end.  I love company and the more, the merrier.  My quilt studio is sure big enough.  We can spend the night giggling and laughing and keeping the cats awake for a change.........

I think it would be a great evening....Gremlins and all....LOL  I have to check with the local quilt shop here in Morristown, but they have a big sale the last Monday night of the month.   They are normally closed Mondays but that one Monday of the month they are open from 5:30 til 8:30 p.m. only.  Their sale rack which is normaly 50% off is 75% off for those 3 hours.  They have door prizes too.  Put your ticket with name and phone number and they will let you know if you aren't there.    Since retreat is during that time, wondering if anyone would be interested in going?  It's a fun night and I go every month even if I don't need anything.  They have everything in the store 15% off too.   It's just a thought.

Hi Nan

I think the last time I saw a count it was 22 quilters. So that would mean 22 squares.  I'm still working on my but I'm making progress.  DH has to work all weekend so I'm putting the pedal to the metal.  Hoping to complete several projects including another quilt for Maddie.  Hope the last one was a big hit.

Nan,  22 is the final block count.  No batting or quilting, just the blocks.  That's according to Mary who is sitting here.
