We'll work it out but I thought I'd let you know!

I'll also do a last post on Wednesday with all that I know about food and PP! Looking forward to meeting all the new people and seeing all the "originals"! :)
Hi Karen:
Thanks for the parking info. Sharon and I will be together so that'll be one car. Diane will be there on Friday and will leave on Saturday so she'll have her own car.

Food:
Sharon's DH is smoking our turkey. I'll also have stuffing, gravy, cranberries, Best Food Mayo, and bread for turkey sandwiches. I think I'll also bring some fresh asparagus and roast that. Thought a turkey dinner for Thursday nigth might be good then snack on the rest of the turkey the rest of the week end.

Sharon and Diane: Don't know for sure what they'll be bringing except I know they won't be empty handed. Both said they'd bring a bottle of wine and snacky stuff.

SUGGESTION: Do you think we need to share our cell phone numbers with each other via PM so we can kind of keep in touch with each other as we need too while in route? It just seems like a safe precaution incase there are unexpected things that come up.

Prayers and good thoughts to all of you for a safe, uneventful trip from home to the retreat house and home again, home again, jiggidy jig!

Feathers, you made me smile when you listed BEST FOODS Mayo. The ONLY way to go!

If anyone needs my number please send a PM. Since I ended up as coordinator, it would probably be helpful if I at least have yours. I have numbers already for Alice, Faith, Cindy H, Sandy, Jen and Lorraine.

Though we really don't have room for any more to stay overnight for the retreat, if we can work out a shuttle from the casino (1/2 mile away), I'm sure we could have a few more who might want to come for the day on Saturday, especially to learn the PP!

I also went to the restaurant (Beachdog Cafe)that we talked about doing breakfast on Friday morning. Yummy!!! The challenge is that the entire place only seats 14! We will probably have to eat in shifts! :) Remember that they only take cash or checks!

If I've missed something (or added :)) something please let me know!

Feathers has a bingo game and a word game. Bring 3 fat quarters (purchased or cut it yourself).

Quiltingnonie is going to show us PP and will post a supply list.

The rental has a fitted sheet on the bed but only as a mattress cover. You will need bedding and towels. I believe they provide kitchen towels, soap, etc. I will confirm this before we go![/quote]

Chicken lasagne has been purchased! I will set out my Scrabble game, so it won't be forgotten! I am looking forward to getting to know all of you! Quilting is a good place to start friendships! Food also helps! :-) Carol

P.S. I can bring some Christmas fabric for stockings also.

The stocking project sounds like fun and I'd love to contribute. I'll bring the necessary material. Any word on a supply list for the paper piecing lesson? What about the applique - what will be needed for that? I'm getting really excited for this coming weekend!! I hope I don't forget anything. I'm planning on waiting to see what food may be needed after everyone gets there and I'll make a run to Safeway.

Look at the top of this page, you'll see the supply list for the PP!

I would love to come over Saturday to learn the paper peicing, but have to go to Sisters OR for my nephews graduation. Sounds like your trip is turning into one fun weekend. Have a great time everyone.

Address for the house is 5299 NW 53rd Drive Lincoln City. It is on a weird corner on the left just after the bend in the road (Logan). I'm going to put up a mylar balloon so that you will have an easier time finding it! I'll arrive no later than 3 to make sure we have all that we need.
