Before I tell you about my weekend I have a funny husband story. Well, it's funny to me because I WAS RIGHT. I told him I was going to tell this story.
For starters, we have old cars. We don't care about cars. They are just transportation and need to be reliable and have A/C and that's about it and we always buy used cars. My Acura is 14 years old and still runs like it's brand new. Chris has a 2001 Infinity and in the past couple of years it's started having some problems and we knew it's coming to the end of its life. He's in Florida this week for 2 separate vacations with friends. He drove and I suggested/asked/pleaded with him to rent a car and not drive his car. Six hours into his trip he called and I'll give him credit because the first thing he said was "You were right!". Yep. The car is in South Carolina and he's in Florida. Fortunately he was caravaning with a friend from SC so they found a place to leave the car and he rode down with Dave and his family.
HAHAHAHAHAHA! I was right!
Now he has a rental car and will fly home and he will do some car shopping when he gets home. There's some chance that his car can be fixed but he's promised to get a "new" car regardless. He says that he wants to take my car and get me a newer (used) car but my car and I love each other and I'm not sure I could give it up.
At least I didn't have to drive to South Carolina to get him so I could continue on my solo sewing weekend and it went great.
I made good progress on the quilt on Willie. No need to share a photo because it looks the same.
I got all of the cornerstones made for the symmetry quilt. I had dyed the black for the sashing but it wasn't as dark as I wanted so it's in a second dye bath. I hope to start sewing the sashing this week.
I even made a new batch of postcards for guest house guests. I should be set for a couple of months there.
On top of that the weather here in Virginia is spectacular! I can't believe that I have the windows open in August. Aside from having to spend money on a car, life is pretty darned perfect right now.
My goals for the week are to start putting the symmetry quilt together, work on a couple of horizon postcards and get to the halfway point on the quilt on Willie.
