A couple things (edited)

Whew, I got the tops, backs, bindings, & batting boxed up & ready to send to the long armer tomorrow! YAY! (I wanted then done so much earlier.)

I have a Halloween give away! I will choose a name randomly upon my return. (I have to be able to reply to you in blogger...)

o.k. 3 things...

Houston... I have mentioned previously that we are staying with my dad. He not unlike my husband is cryptic. So I was left not knowing when/if he was taking time off from work while we were in town - since her knew we were going to the quilt show. Apparently, he is taking most of the time off... So on Wednesday during the day we are going to do "something." & we are going out to dinner before the show. (I still plan on meeting everyone at @7:30 near the Hoffman challenge quilts.)
He thought that we were only going to the show for 1/2 a day... Tee Hee! We already got out tickets, so we will be going to the show on Thursday as well. Everyone I have talked to says that you need at least a full day.
And then, we will be spending more time with him on Friday before we leave... :o)

Am I right to assume that everyone is interested in the giveaway? I'll draw this time next week... I hope to post some from Houston in the mean time - no promises. Right now I am patiently waiting for the Airport Shuttle...

If your Dad thinks of it as a museum visit...he might enjoy it more. My Dad has been several times to help push Mom in her wheelchair and I think he enjoys it. We'll be there Friday.

Yeah, my sister volunteered to go with me to the quilting convention here. I thought it was really sweet, until I realized she had allocated two hours for the thing. Um dear, I plan on being there when it opens, and staying all day until it closes. Maybe even come back the next day.
Have enough fun for all of us at Houston! Take pictures so we can come along.
