Another Manic Monday (OK - Tuesday)!!

My apologies to any of you who tried to look at my blog yesterday and were greeted with a blank page! Apparently a link I had added caused the posts to disappear. How weird is that? Anyhoo--hopefully it's back now and working properly.

We had a fun little trip last week. I actually didn't take the camera (duh!) thinking there wouldn't be much to take pics of, but you might have enjoyed it more than I thought. Bill and I had gone to a travel show here in Tulsa a couple of weeks ago and at the booth for a new Indian casino on the OK/MO border, we won a couple of free gift certificates! His was for $50 worth of food and mine was for $25 worth of play money. So off we went on Thursday for a little Valentine's getaway.

I really wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. I had found that if you mentioned "the web" when you made reservations that you got $30 off your room! That made the room $69. And BOY!! Was it beautiful!! They spared NO expense with gorgeous granite, big flat screen TV, and a beautiful tile steam shower along with a huge king sized bed that you practically needed a ladder to get in to! Wow!! So we went to the casino and spent several hours playing. They had a Valentine's deal where, if you accumulated 50 points on your players card, they would give you a little box of chocolates. We both had done that and when I got mine, they had me turn it over and scratch it off to reveal Happy Valentines. Great. Then Bill turns his over and wins ANOTHER $100 in play money!! Besides that we enjoyed a delicious steak in one of the 4 on-site restaurants with the gift card and had a delightful time. Came home with a little money even!

After a leisurely breakfast we took off for Joplin and I did a little SHOPPING! We stopped at the darling shop in Carthage where I did the book signing last fall and I got this gorgeous group of fabric. Haven't decided what to do, but the colors are wonderful!

Then hit a couple of antique malls and can you guess what I found???? Let's see--- Could it be FEEDSACKS??!!

Other than that, by the time we stopped for our famous fried chicken, I guess you can figure that I didn't lose any weight! But I didn't gain, either, so I'm OK with that! We had a lot of fun and now I'm back to work..... Sorta, anyway.

Hope you all have a great week and get lots of time to stitch!

Blessings~

Oh how lucky you were last week, a hubby that will go shopping! The Moda is very nice but you know what I am drooling over, why can't I ever find anything like that here in IL. way to many quilters that is what I think! Take a peek at my blog, I am using your fabrics for my tea swap, I could not show the whole project yet, but when it is over I will send you a pucture. Have a nice day!
