- My car broke down awhile ago, and the Subaru garage said it was due to a mouse eating the engine wiring harness. ( if you are a regular reader, you know all about this. ) They had to replace much more than that in the end, but I thought it was over.
- Then about 2 weeks ago it broke down for my son. He had it towed. A few days later after much miscommunication on their end they said it was running fine….they could not find anything wrong with it.
- I assumed that the tech guy had tightened something that he’d missed and they did not want to admit to that. I didn’t care. It started up in the bitter cold, was running fine when I took it out….I thought that the Saga Was Over.
- Then on Friday afternoon, out of the blue it started the same-old thing. Shuddering, shaking back and forth and stalling. I managed to get it off the road and had to wait 2 1/2 hours in the cold for a tow truck to finally arrive. ( AAA kept telling me it would be just a few more minutes, then I’d call a half-hour later and get the same story. )
I have a 2010 Subaru Legacy that ran like a dream until all of this began. Now I don’t know if Subaru will finally figure this out or not :(
I have to work at the Vintage Secrets antique mall on Sunday ( we work as part of our rent-deal there ) & will either be getting a car to rent or have to get a ride…I WILL take some quilting there, since snow is in the forecast, on top of another round of sub-zero temperatures, and I doubt that it will be very busy.
I am about 1/2 way through with the hand-quilting that I’d decided to do on the inside portion of this baby quilt: Nothing fancy…the perimeter is machine quilted and the hand-quilting is just following some wavy lines drawn with a saucer. I will finish up the borders with machine quilting.
Then, even if the Mouse and Car Universe has it in for me now, surely SOMEBUNNY loves me ? :)
After I finish appliqueing this bunny, I am going to embroider Somebunny Loves You around the top. I’ve taken to making a mug / candle mat for the new DIL around each holiday thus far this year so I thought this would be cute for Easter.
Whether or not SPRING will arrive seems up in the air at the moment but Easter will for sure :)
