New Things

My PT has been in the shop (again) for over a week, waiting for parts, and I have had to depend on friends and family to get me around, which is of course a pain for everyone. 
Image result for 2010 PT Cruiser redI got impatient and decided it was time for a new car. I went online to Carmax with no idea what I wanted, other than a hatchback and heated seats. I found this 2015 Lexus CT 200h, with less than 19K miles and it had everything imaginable on it. I fell deeply in love and got my sister to take me over and I bought it Friday night. 
I am giddy with happiness and don't care if I ever see my PT again...but I will have to retrieve it, if and when it is ever fixed.
So, confident that I am able to get around when needed, I stayed home Saturday and quilted. What else?
 One of our members of our church group Knitwits is moving and it was decided she needed a quilt from us, and an crocheted afghan too. I did the quilt using the cherries and strawberries fabrics I have in my stash. The design is simple so the quilting had to be fancy.

 It was fun to do and is my first finished quilt of 2018. 43.5"x55".


  1. Woo Hoo! Nice wheels
    I used to have a purple PT Cruiser which I loved, but it's been dead for quite awhile now.

  2. I know a few PT owners and the cars just didn’t last.

    Most of mine have reached a decade and beyond. My own Prius was 10 December 31, 2017 and is still going strong. Around 65,000 miles on it. I hope to reach 100,000 before I have to consider replacing it. When I do, I’m considering a pure EV. By that time I just won’t be doing long distance driving any more.

  3. Now that's a cool car! Judith P.
