Winner, Winner and Winner!

First Winner:

Marcus High School Band was awarded 1st place for large bands in the State of Texas Tuesday at the State UIL Marching Band contest in San Antonio!

They also won first place in the Super Regional Bands Of America contest over the weekend also in San Antonio.

The show finale, check out the flags in the back... those are 7 by 11 feet! That's my daughter in the front on the right side of the 50 yard line.

Second Winner!!! a tie!
A tie between the San Fransisco Giants, winners of the World Series ....

and ME! For scoring these wonderful finds on sale while in San Antonio at the band competitions.

Both of the above piles were 50% off , the charm packs were 30% off!! I found Arcadia and it was on sale!!!

I also splurged and got these as a little treat.... not on sale.

Third Winner:

Sara Craig is the winner of the 4 fat quarters from the Bad Blogger Giveaway!

Thanks everyone for playing! And for the input on the disappearing 9-patch borders. With the competition season over (till Winter Guard starts) I hope to have a chance to get some of my projects going again and I always appreciate the input and comments that you in blog land provide.


  1. Congratulations on all the winners! The marching band did so well and what great photos of them in action. What lovely fabrics you scored as well!

  2. Thanks again, Diane! And congratulations to all your winners!!

  3. Congratulations to your daughter and the rest of the Marcus Band! That's so fabulous! What was their show theme this year?
    And great job on the fabric finds! You had pretty much the perfect plan - while the band's busy with their long hours of 'hurry up and wait,' Mom can pop on over to the fabric store! :D

  4. Yay, Marcus Band!

    Did you go to Quilt Haus?

  5. Congrats to you all. Love the band photos. So cool.
