Wednesday Words: At Jo-Ann's Fabric and Crafts

Cindy hurried to Jo-Ann’s for the early opening sale.  When Jo-Ann’s had a sale and coupons were in hand, nothing could hold Cindy back.

Racing past faux limestone gargoyles and foam pumpkins, Cindy began her trek through this super store.  Gotta find Halloween fabric!  Sixty-percent off with an extra 10% with coupon….

Cindy grabbed bolts of felt and black-spider-with-glowing-ghost fabric.  Everything was going well, so uneventfulI’ll be home in time….


That was when a spasm hit her left calf, the largest cramp ever.  Cindy tried not to scream.  But some things cannot be squelched.

The underlined words are a gift from Delores @Under the Porch Light .  Please visit her site and see what others have created.  Some great stuff!

Note:  Jo-Ann's store is nationwide.  You will need a GPS locator to navigate a super store.

  1. We are getting close to Halloween aren't we? Great use of the words.

  2. We have the world headquarters of JoAnn around the block. I believe Cindy would have learned at the register that coupons cannot be used for sale items. Have you ever noticed everything is on sale every day at JoAnn. The coupons, I believe, are but a ploy to get people in the door.

    That being said, nice story.

    1. I know about the coupons not being used on sale items. My sister worked in a super story for years and felt bullied by customers who insisted to use the coupons for sale items. Oh, how she hated that job.

  7. I like this, I enjoy wandering through fabric stores myself. Ouch on the cramp though, I hope Cindy managed to hobble to the checkouts.

    1. The Cindy I created would crawl on bloodied knees to save 10%!

  8. Dear Susan, I always like your Friday posting with the words given by "Delores." You weave a story each week that has all the elements of good story telling--Character, Plot, Suspense. Peace.

    1. I enjoy Delores' challenges very much. Have to wonder how and where she finds these words.
