The name of the restaurant is Beach Dogs Cafe. The food was excellent! The other recommendation was for sourdough bread at a local bakery.

It was great to get to know everyone! Thank you, Karen for all your work arranging it! And thank you to the ladies who kept the dishwasher running!

I made it home in only 7.5 hours. After the cheese factory, two quilt shops sucked me in but I'm finally home.

What a fantastic time. I drove down there knowing none of you and came back with 15 new friends.

Oh my-my my my! I haven't laughed so much and talked so much and ate so much as I did this last weekend! What a wonderful group of women. I sure hope pictures will be posted of the projects that were accomplished this weekend. Candlequilter and ugly cook (and a few others) seemed to like the cooler climate downstairs and just wait you will see why. Hopefully someone will post their beautiful creations!!

Those of the upstairs group were just as creative! Alot more noise of course and serious eating taking place but lots of beautiful work being done too. Congratulations to you who were able to make your wallet swell at the casino and a special thanks to those who hung with me and experienced the shrinkage! It was all for fun!

Thank you ladies for such a wonderful weekend it was soooo much fun!! You are so special, each one in their own way. I'm so happy to have the opportunity to get to know all of you better. Until next time we can gather together . . .

Will post pics a little later if I'm still awake-I can feel the lack of sleep now that I'm back home!

I had a wonderful time and feel very renewed! Thanks so much to Sandy for the name tags and the game! Thanks to Laurie for teaching me a new skill in quilting! I'm going to have to put it to use and make a quilt now! Like all of you, I appreciate all those who brought yummy food and kept the kitchen running! I feel bad about not being able to help with the final clean up but I know you all did a wonderful job! My GD looked beautiful in her dress!

Who's taking on organizing the next one? :)

Anna Renee on her big day!
