Sewing Quilt Top for Road to (Secret)

I woke up at 6:00 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep.  I am not a morning person, but I figured I'd might as well make good use of my time.  So I started sewing together the quilt top for Road to (Secret).  I got one quadrant sewn together, including theme fabric border pieces.  I'll have the rest sewn together shortly.  As usual I'll machine quilt in sections.  I've divided the quilt roughly in half vertically.  The sections are wider than I like to deal with, but I'll get through it.  I'm planning to do an enclosed seam to join the sections.

I'm without a car at the moment, have been for about a week.  I'm not sure how long that will last, but hopefully not too long.  People have been wonderfully generous about giving me rides.  I work in a large office, and two co-workers who live within a few blocks of me have been getting me to and from work.  My son and daughter-in-law took me to and from church on Sunday.  A fellow church orchestra member gave me a ride to/from rehearsal last night. 

Today I needed to go to Joann's for extra backing fabric and some thread for the Road quilt.  Fortunately I live near the mall where many buses are.  I missed a bus to take me the half mile to the mall area, so I walked.  Not a big deal.  Among my errands, I needed to go to two banks which were by the mall and across the street from one another, so that worked out.  I stopped at a nearby restaurant and had lunch, then went back across the street to wait for the bus that would take me to Joann's.  Things went pretty smoothly.  I did my research before I left home, so I knew which bus I needed, what time the bus stopped, etc.

All the public transportation I've done on vacations paid off in my own home town today.
