Tuesday last week our dear old car
428,615 kms was enough and she wasn't moving from her warm spot in the sun outside our house.
We had an inkling that the car was on its last legs and John and I have spent the last few weekends checking out cars and going for some test drives. What an unbelievable car the Tarago has been - 20 years old and 2 minor mechanical repairs until last week's issues.
Today we collected our new car.
I have really liked this model since I first saw one a few years ago parked outside Camden Quilt Show (must have been a sign) and never thought we would own one. It's a dream to drive. Looks like 2010 is our big year for upgrades - sewing machine, car - wonder if John will want an upgrade on his wife?
Block 8 Tail Feathers is finished and I stitched 1-1/2 corner blocks on the train to Sydney today.
Was hoping to finish Block 9 over the weekend then remembered I need a birthday present for Wednesday - I'm going to make Melly & Me's Matryoshka Dolls from Homespun No 64.
