On a bad note...we'd gone out to eat lunch with a couple of her family members and I was driving my Tahoe. Had a wonderful lunch at a Japanese steak house and the guy cooking had us laughing til we cried. He was a great entertainer as he handled that big old grill and utensils. Everytime he banged down the spatula on the grill, I jumped and he'd apologize! LOL Anyway..for the bad news.
As we left the restaurant, we discovered my Tahoe had been broken into! At least no window was smashed. They'd used something to poke into the key hole and pop the lock. Stole a container full of quarters I'd been using for toll roads...probably a hundred or so $$. Also stole a quilt top that my friend had been working on for a baby shower. Both were in the front of the truck...she'd sorta stuffed her bag under the passenger seat. She was very upset about that and I wasn't too happy to have my Tahoe damaged and money stolen. We filed a report...but don't expect anything to come out of it. In the back of the Tahoe, I had 2 quilt tops and the backing for them that I'd just purchased. Also was a huge roll of batting that my friend had purchased. They didn't take any of that.
Then the day I was ready to leave...I had a flat tire! Had to wait until friend's hubby came home to change it out for me. Shame on me...I've never changed a tire in my life...much less try to figure out how to get that full sized spare out from under the Tahoe. But I watched him and I think I just might be able to do it. He used his compresser to air up the tire and zip/zip...I was ready to head home.
So here's what I got accomplished! It was windy today and I had to take pics in between breezes! LOL
Remember that Christmas Star Strip quilt that I had put aside? It is finished and quilted! I sewed the binding on while at my friend's house.
