On the way back down, I stopped by both of my son's colleges to see them. I arrived on Halloween to spend the evening with my oldest son. His college hosts Trick-or-Treating in the dorms. It was fun seeing all the college students in their costumes, and the local kids and families going thru the dorms, gathering candy. My son dressed up as a Star Wars Storm trouper going to the prom. He got the purple leisure suit from my stepfather this summer. Now I'm on the hunt for another leisure suit for the younger son. He really wants one in orange, if possible (his school colors).

The world is a small place. I read a blog written by a lady from my hometown in Texas. She moved there years after I left. It is the same town that hubby's and my family still live in. Well... I got a chance to go shopping at the local Hancock's while I was in San Angelo. It was one of the few places I got to shop at while I was in town. Imagine my surprise when I laid my fabric bolt down on the cutting table, and recognized the lady who was going to cut it for me. I checked her name tag, then asked if she was CollectIn Texas Gal? She said 'Yes, I am'. I told her that I am Cheryl's Teapots to Quilting. What a surprise for both of us! Sue wrote the cutest blogpost about us meeting here. Please read it, it is sew cute!

Yesterday, I pulled out some fabric, and made some blocks for Erin.

I don't have pictures of the other fusibles I was working on. They aren't ironed onto backgrounds yet. I'll show pictures of those later.
I found lots of goodies on the trip down and back. I haven't even had time to unpack them, so, I'll post about them later.
Have a Great Week!
