    Hi all
    How about a chant: ready set go, ready set go. I am drilling away on my levy quilts so I am ready.

    I will miss the train, DGD#3 visiting. I have never ridden along but want to see what happens. I might catch you at the crossings and wave.

    I'm betting we will slow down enough at a crossing for you to jump on.

    LOL, it sucks to have to wait till we catch up with YOU!.

    Sun is shining here, it's been in the high forties, low fifties in the NW, I guess we keep sending it all East.

    Let the party begin.

    I have to work too, however I do plan on popping in tomorrow to see the first clue. Then it will be rushing home to pick fabric.

    Looking forward to tomorrow.

    Man, you put pecans in the granola! Bummer! Guess I'll have to bring my own snacks this time. Didn't know you had gone green. Ds2 loves his juicer. Knew we should have tried for a lily/daniel connection!
    Can't wait to see what fabrics will work for this! Have set some up for a modern wedding ring, so this will be another set up. Cutting into my stash, no shopping allowed! Are you going to the mod meeting on saturday, dot?

    It's 07:50 here, and already the sun is so hot we have to close the curtains! I'll be using some of my batik stash for this mystery, but I need some neutrals...... so .....I'll go shopping while I wait ...it will surely help to shorten the next 8 hours... See you at the station!

    It is good to see some old quilting friends jump on board the train. It is 01/31/14 and my cutting mat is ready and my rotary cutter has been primed. Just need some guidance now. Fabric is piled everywhere in anticipation of being the next mystery project. However the sound of the wheels on the metal are mesmerizing and I think I will just curl up with my fabric for few winks. Is Judy onboard yet? Maybe I will just go to the Diner Car to see if there is any hot black coffee.

    Please don't drink all the coffee, aurora! I will be up all night from the looks of it. It's almost 3:00 and I'm wide awake. I'll bring donuts and fruit to the dining car and meet you there! Next stop I'll need to pick up some sweet-n-low or learn to drink my coffee black. How long is this train ride?

    I would sure enjoy some fruit. Don't worry even I cannot drink a whole pot of coffee at one sitting. Guess we will find out how long the train runs when Judy wakes up and joins us.

    Sounds like it is going to be a wild ride. You quilters up so early. I unfortunately have to go to work. But don't leave without me. Soooo looking forward to this trip.

    Not to worry, sustraley. I have a feeling this train is a little like the Hogwarth's Express in that it just shows up where someone is ready to board.

    And we are off, just started picking up passengers. Everyone should be on board soon so come on over to the new thread and let's get the party started!

    I won't be coming back to this thread anymore, see you over at #6.
