Lucky me!

Have any of you ever won the big pot in the lotteri?  I won 50kr a couple of weeks ago, thats little over $6.00 so not exactly the big pot hahaha!  But early this sommer I was chosen to be a Sewing Portfolios Ambassador and I got 3 yards of fabric from Michael Miller to play with, now thats what I call winning the big pot!!  I have been treating my fabric like gold and going back and forth on what to make from it.  This is the first time I have been given fabric so this was truly a big deal for me and.  Well, I finally found the patterns I wanted to use and be warned this post will be long!
