So I know my car is older and things are going to break down, but why do they have to cost so much? Sigh. My baby is in the shop getting a new ball joint, alignment, and a new tire. There's no question about having the work done or not, because it has to be done. I'm not going to buy a new car any time soon, so the amount that we have to put into this one in repairs is definitely less than a car payment would be. Oh well, gotta do what ya' gotta do. On the upside, I do have a nice new Ford Escape to drive as a loaner car. Pretty nice ride.
On the quilty side, I got the backing and batting loaded for the tee shirt quilt last night. I am going to float the top, since it isn't very big at all. If I have time tonight, I may even be able to get it all quilted. Will have to see how things go when I get home. Tonight is my night out to dinner with darling son. Probably go to Sunset for dinner, as I think he is kind of burned out on Tilley's right now.
I also have to sew up some quilting samples for my friend Sandy. She has a top that she might want me to quilt and would like to see some samples to decide what she wants to do. It's kind of exciting now, doing a little bit here and there for other people. I'm also waiting on another gal to give me a top that I promised to quilt for our church raffle. The lady who always made the quilts has stopped, so one gal is making the top and I am doing the quilting. She is going to do the binding, also. Works for me!
With those three projects, I am going to be about at the end of the roll of batting I currently have. Good thing I am going to Paducah soon! Whee! Hancocks here I come!
