I won a giveaway!

I've just found out that I won a giveaway at Linda's Art Quilts. And the prize is some hand dyed fabric which is just what I need for my fiber art. I found her blog through a blog hop promoting the new season of Quilting Arts TV.
There'll be no sewing for me today; I'm getting ready to go a barbecue at the beach for my father in law's birthday. It's a warm sunny day so we likely would have headed out there anyway. It's always nice to get together with lots of family.
I did do a sketch with my tea after breakfast this morning using colored pencils and some water-colour pencils.

Also, this is in the middle of my sewing room, upside down while it awaits felts for the legs. I picked it up at the second hand store yesterday. It is going to fit between my sewing cabinet and cutting table. I may paint it first.

I spent half my morning getting a line of clothes out, frosting cupcakes, and making this rustic potato salad.

Potatoes, cooked, diced, peel on
Eggs,
Chopped celery,
Finely chopped red onion
Chopped red pepper
Crispy bacon
Dash salt, pepper

Sauce:
1/2 and 1/2,Greek yogurt and mayo
Honey mustard
Dijon mustard
Dash apple cider vinegar, (all to taste, I never measure)
