What a fun greeting

We made it home....and we already miss the warm weather...when we left FL it was in the home to the 50s...oh well, such is life. I was greeted though by my tulips and daffodils that were in full bloom...I love spring.

I had another surprise when I got home.

When I opened the fridg to put away things from the cooler, I found that cans of Pepsi and diet Pepsi we left in the fridg before we left had frozen and exploded.....all over the inside. SO, I had to clean out the entire fridg....just what I wanted to do. It is amazing that nothing else was frozen....Does anyone have a theory about why just the sodas froze? The other items included a bottle of V8 juice, a jar of mayonaise, ketchup, mustard, relish, jelly, beer, wine, and assorted other condiments.

Memoir time.....

I have been thinking about my quilting lately. I have been pretty lucky to have had some recent recognition for my efforts (The McCall's Quick Quilt publication and the Accuquilt Barn Quilt Contest Finalist). I think about my grandmother who was my inspiration. I have one of her quilts hanging on a rack in my living room right now. She died over 30 years ago at the age of 90 but I feel so close to her even now. 

Happy quilting

Congrats! I made the top 100 too and feel honored and excited! I too have my Grandma in my mind and is a motivator for my quilting. I have her name as my middle name and always sign my quilts with my full name. Funny thing is she wasnt really a quilter yet still made simple practical quilts for all of her grandchildren. Practical. I thinks that why I admire her.

I have no idea why just the sodas froze. Maybe it is the air from the carbonation.

I, too, have been so lucky to have grandmothers who inspired me in my stitching. Aren't we lucky?

Of course, grandmothers all quilted. I had no interest in quilting when my Nan was alive. Now, I wish I had.
As to the fridge thing...not an iota of why it would freeze everything except the setting was too low.
All that sweet sticky stuff...YUCK!
