I'm baaaaaacccccccckkkkkk....

Hi y'all!!!
Yes I am back from our trip to Las Vegas!
We had a great time with friends W & J, and had a wonderful home away from home (with 3 TVs in our 5 star suite! Big wowzers!!!)
We saw 3 shows (The Jersey Boys, The Blue Man Group, and The Beatles "Love" Cirque du Soleil)...

We did lots of walking and looking around, up and down "the strip", and boy are my feet glad to be home...
OUCH! 8-/
I bought trinkets and souvenirs, and...
Lots of "eye candy" that will fit nicely in with my "stash"!! Wink! 8-)
Yup! I did the Quilt Tour!
Five shops!!! 8-)
My friend W surprized me with a gift of "the tour" as an early 50th B-Day prezzie!!!
Before the trip I had decided to forgo the "tour", and only visit 1 or 2 shops on my own while in Vegas.
What a surprize indeed!!! What a wonderful friend! W even went on the tour with me!!! She doesn't quilt... What a trouper!!!
Thanks W!!! You are so special to me! 8-)

I will post that "eye candy" I bought all this week... Promise!!!
I am also hoping to get some blog visits in this week too... 8-)

Happy stitchings!
Myra

You have a very good friend there. When I was in Vegas I didn't see a single quilt shop. Maybe that's why I wasn't all that impressed. Five quilt shops would have definitely impressed me. I'll be looking forward to your eye candy.

I didn't know that Vegas had quilt shops. That must have been fun. Look forward to seeing photos.

When I went on the Tour, our limo stalled out under the (in)famous 'Welcome To Las Vegas' sign. They had to send another limo for us so we could continue on the tour. We spent the time getting to know one another and talking and laughing like all quilters do. I found out that there were 3 other quilters there from Denver only 50 miles away from where I live. Small world!
