To my house for coffee and oatmeal/chocolate chip/cranberry cookies. Make sure and bring your shorts as the temp is 77' so far today. Yesterday it got hot enough I almost turned on the air conditioning.

Just think how nice it would be if we could all meet and get to know each other in person. I've met some of you at the retreats but there are so many new people who sounds as interesting as the "older" members.

Maybe some day!

I've been threatening to go south for the winter but your 77 degrees in Kansas may change my mind, lol.

It's a beautiful day here as well, since the fog burned off. So far the cold front they were promising hasn't brought any colder weather, but the day's not over yet.

Don't forget, we are wintering on Arizona but in a few weeks we will start wandering our way home. First stop is Elephant Butte Lake in southern NM.

I'm in Prescott AZ. Are you nearby???? Your coffee and cookies offer sounds wonderful! Really, if you are nearby it would be great to meet you. We are a mile high in Prescott, so we got that doozy of a snow storm a week ago today. Most of it has melted off and today is 59 degrees. your 77 degrees sounds awesome.

Ooh that sounds heavenly. Lucky you!! It's 10 degrees here in Wisconsin and snow piled high everywhere you go. Have a fire going in the fireplace and boy we have burned through the wood this winter! Temps expected this weekend below zero again. Even the 40's would sure be great, melt some of this white stuff and the ice underneath it all. Every time I get my hopes up that the worst is behind us we get deluged with another couple inches and it never gets warm enough to melt off. But if any of you get lonesome for cold weather my door is always open lol.

Carol, I'll run down to MD from PA and pick you up and then we'll use Google Maps to find Terry....no problem! LOL We'll probably have to stop for more cookies though. BTW, 28 degrees here in PA. 70's sounds great....I'd even take a high 60's.

We are in Quartzite, 20 miles from CA and 60ish miles north of Yuma. Next week we are moving closer to Yuma.

LauraP....it sounds so wonderful...this Northeastern winter has been quite horrendous this season. I am hoping for spring soon! And like you, I would so enjoy the company of fellow forum friends to share the quilting passions and bond!

Quilty hugs to you and so jealous of the warm weather you are experiencing! I see that you live in SE Kansas; how far are you from Joplin, Missouri. I have a sister that lives near Joplin......

Laura, we were just in Quartzite mid February and then Lake Havasu. Darn, might have crossed your path and not known it!!
I'm heading to a quilting retreat in Memphis, TN end of March through April 6. I am looking forward to spending some time getting to know the ladies better and get some quilting time in.

I want a full report on the lake/area. We were in the general area a couple years ago but didn't go to the lake. Now DH is really interested in going back to check it out.

That would be fun. Hey Monique, we could drive together. After Monday's drive to the retreat, I can drive through any storm. But as you said, I probably need to wait for the snow to melt a bit. Here's the view looking out my front door.
