WE WON!!







Actually, my MIL, who lives with us, won this gas grill from Home Depot. She entered a drawing back in February, which she never thought about again. They called her last week to tell her she won - no strings attached. I sure never won anything - this is great! Now, how will hubby get it off the back of his pickup?
I started cutting out this quilt. It is a kit, Civil War Crossings by Barbara Brackman, made with fabric by the same name. I picked this up at my local quilt shop. I am a sucker for pink and brown quilts. The pattern is in "Quilters Newsletter", November 2008 magazine. I guess I really love this fabric, cause I also bought 1/2 yds of a lot of this line as well. (I can't figure out how to post pictures before and after my text, so my composition is not great, Sorry)

I don't know what we'd do without our grill. We just love it!

The best of two worlds, delicious fabric and food off that grill once you get it off the truck!
