|Server in JoAnns today|
Today we shopped. First Jo-ann's always intended to be my most major purchase shop and so it proved as I bought large and small mats, and a large rotating mat and packs of large and standard blades. My fabric purchases were relatively restrained with small amounts of Halloween fabrics to make Trick or Treat bags for or group sales table calico or muslin as it known here and bright blenders for my Linus quilts.
This was followed by a trip round Walmart where my friend bought presents for family members while I tended trolleys. I got a few FQs destined for Linus quilts.

We registered for the show and checked where the bus is due to leave for tomorro Halloween.w's tour and found ourselves among a very happy crowd going to watch the Houston rockets. Lots of razzamatazz.
Then cocktail time at the hotel. The barman took a shine to us and gave us special treatment with ameretto margarita then Blue Hawaiian. culminating in strawberry daiquiris.

Over cocktails I was thrilled to chat to Victoria (Vicky) and Beverley fro Generation Q magazine, already a firm favourite with me. We ere presented with our very own advance copy.
