Bill took off early yesterday morning to go to the lab and run a few errands. He never got more than 1.5 miles from home; a man ran a red light and they collided. At least Bill hit their side of the car instead of them T-boning Bill or this would be a very different post!
The only sad part is the loss of this vehicle which we both love to drive!
The insurance company has deemed it totaled so now we have to go car shopping
which is hateful to me and tiring right now for Bill.
We do go today and pick up a rental until we find the replacement.
The car is a Ford Escape--Bill had a very narrow escape;
how grateful I am that God spared his life.
We did have to go to where the car was towed and clean out all personal items
and remove the license plate.
I'm always sad to say goodbye to a car!
Very little was accomplished after all of the extras of the day--
I did have to cut the extra fabric to the side of the quilt I was working on at the frame
and sew it to the bottom which was 6" too short!
What a shock. After sewing it to the bottom of the quilt,
I loaded it back on the frame to finish the bottom border!
I knew there was a good reason
why I always place the top closer to one side of the backing than the other!
Off the frame and awaiting its binding.
And a new quilt is loaded on the frame.
As soon as we are back from the Enterprise, I will hit the quilting trail!
Doing my own thing, I have painted the front of my church.
We will be driving our rental on Sunday which will be strange
we will be going together and that is too wonderful!
