I Won!

What did I win you ask? A quilt! DH brought it home last night. My MIL belongs to a quilt guild and they pieced together a quilt to raffle off this past weekend and wouldn't you know it, my name was picked out of the hat :o)

It's absolutely gorgeous. I tried to get the best picture I could so that you could see every aspect of it. It's huge though! I love the fact that my MIL worked on it so now it will definitely have sentimental value. I guess I owe her a dollar for buying that raffle ticket ;o)

On Friday, DH and I tried a new restaurant called the Back Nine. It was really good! Sweet potato fries...yum! Thanks Faith Ann for the recommendation :o) We made a few quick stops to check out new laptops but nothing caught my attention plus the fact that computer shopping in this city sucks. Why do we have to be in the armpit of the country???? LOL!

Saturday morning I was up at 6 am so we decided, last minute, to take a day trip down to Bangor, Maine. I stopped by Jo-Ann's Fabrics and AC Moore but was quite disappointed with their selections. I was able to pick up that extra set of 8 X 8 Q-Snaps that I wanted though. Since we had Brie with us, we were limited in what we could do. It was so hot that we didn't dare leave her in the car for any amount of time so that made shopping very awkward.

For supper we went to downtown Bangor and ate at Paddy Murphy's. It's a quaint little pub and the food was really good. Sweet potato fries again! Yum! My sandwich was made up of grapes, Granny Smith apples, pecans, chicken (all mixed with a sauce or dressing), tomato and lettuce on toasted sourdough bread. The best part about the trip though...I found personal sized containers of Ben & Jerry's ice cream and it included...the spoon! If you haven't figured it out by now, small things like this are what amuse me and make my day ;o)

What a gorgeous quilt!!!! That colour combination is stunning.

Mmmm, I love chicken salad with grapes and pecans. The ice cream sounds pretty darn good too.

Congratulations on the win, nice looking quilt !!
Sweet Potato fries are big here too. I usually just dice them up and pan fry with whatever seasoning I fancy at the time.

Oh what a beautiful quilt, I just love it. How nice that your MIL bought you a raffle ticket and you won. Fantastic. This is a lucky week, I won a raffle in Hallmark stores and won 2 Christmas ornaments.
Cathy, Thank you so very much for the surprise you sent me in the mail. I love it. I can't wait to use it. I have to take a pic and post it on my blog, that was so sweet of you, you are a doll. Thank you and sending you big hugs. xoxoxox
