Trials and Tribulations
When my husband arrived we transferred the groceries to our van and he drove the car slowly, with me following behind, to the corner where there was a repair shop and I left him there. I drove my Mom home and then my sister and I carried on with our plans. (Ultimately, the car needed to stay overnight so they gave my husband a lift to my Mom's where I picked him up later in the day.)
CanSew and they sell a product called Poly Plus 65/2 that I want to try. I know that many other long arm quilters use it and are very happy with it and the price is a lot better as well. They have a location in Toronto so we decided to give it a go. There is a minimum $ order so after spending the money I hope that it works well for me. I plan to give it a test run in a couple days and I will give a review of my results.
My car is all fixed now - apparently the brake line corroded and that is why it just let go. I am so glad it didn't happen when I was driving at a high rate of speed and needed to stop quickly. When they had it on the lift they showed my husband that the gas line was badly corroded as well and it needed to be replaced. We are talking $$$ here but you gotta do what you gotta do. My car is old now, it is a 2001 and even though we have kept it well maintained, things are just wearing out.
