Susan :
Is there still a room for a couple?

I was writing out the final payment check to send off tomorrow to Mary and I told DH that you both might be coming.  He was really excited about seeing Bob again.  I'm thinking there is still one or two more rooms for couples but of course I'm not Mary.  Also....there is only 2 months left until the retreat!!!  Oh happy day.  I'm going to keep thinking about this all week. Maybe it will speed everything up for me.....LOL

Our Smoky Mountain retreat for 2013 will again be the last full week in June at the Lodge at Douglas Lake. We still have up to 12 spaces left. The cost will be $200.00 and we have 25 spaces. The list is as follows. If you told me you wanted to come when you were here in June or October of this year, please message me and remind me.

The lodge has a 1200 square foot room where we set up our machines and workspace for the week. It's really the perfect venue for a quilting retreat.

 

  1. Mary
  2. Andrea Dee - Deposit received - $100
  3. Kathy Fritz - PIF
  4. Carolyn (Sister of Janis) - Deposit received - $75
  5. Janis (Sister of Carolyn) - Deposit received - $75
  6. Mimi - Deposit Received - $100
  7. Dave - Deposit Received - $100
  8. Beth - PIF
  9. Bill - PIF
  10. Diana - PIF
  11. Ann Johnson
  12. Darlene
  13. Larry
  14. Sue
  15. Bob

 

We will be bringing our own food again and I will assign each room a meal, either breakfast or dinner. Lunch will be leftovers or sandwiches. We will also do our gift exchange and have a trash to treasure table. This was such fun and Sara Wall, who is a member here and the owner of the lodge, is a wonderful, gracious hostess.

Mary, can you assign me 2 breakfasts again.  I don't mind doing it alone and I get up so early, it works great for me.  Thanks!

 

Have we heard anything from Sabrina? Sure hope she can join us again.

I PM'd Sabrina a while ago and she just wrote back this weekend to say that she can't make it this year.  Her best friend is getting married that weekend and she will be in Canada for the festivities all week.  I told her we would miss her sweet ways and lovely accent.  She also has a lot of relatives getting married or having babies so she's been busy with showers and bridal teas.  That's why she hasn't been on much lately.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!  Grandbabies are so very special.  will you have pictures by retreat time?  It seems like 2 months is so long, but I know it will speed by and we will all be together soon.  Can't wait.

Andrea - Congrats!!  Have you started baby quilts yet??

Sue - Bill and I are looking forward to seeing you and Bob again. I'm glad you are coming!

Mimi - 2 months?  I want to go NOW!!  However, I am trying to finish the projects I did at Branson so I guess I'll use the two months to catch up (sort of).

Kathy - Who gets up early??  Seems like I beat you a couuple of days last year :)

Mary - Just let Bill and I know what meal you want us to do.  Thanks for arranging all of this again - I really like the location and hope we can make it work again!

Me too!! But work always gets in the way of what I want to do.  I have to keep myself happy somehow. So knowing there are only 42 more days of work and 2 months before  the retreat is my happy pill.

Andrea do you know which kind of grandbabies you will be spoiling?

No, don't know gender yet.  Tina is due Nov 24th and Stephanie is due Dec 30th so I've got a few more weeks before we know Gender.  Soooo excited.  Can't wait to see everyone.
