    I went to my LQS today to check out the annual sale. $9.29 - $9.99 fabrics for $4, $5 and $6 dollars - including one I just paid full price for, darn it. I only had time to buy one piece I needed tonight (at full price) with plans to spend I lot of time there tomorrow. On the way out of town to pick up a granddaughter, my car was totaled. I am home, though in much pain. If I can walk tomorrow, I've already put a non-sewing daughter on alert that I need to go to the fabric store.

    This store only has one sale a year, so it's a good chance to get some great fabrics. The first will be the backing for my second daughter's birthday quilt. That one needs to be done in early January. I'd better start my list as I won't be able to pop in daily. Double darn. I hate car shopping.

    Oh, I hope you will feel better soon! That's why I shop online for the most part! No driving.

    So sorry you have to go through this. I an glad that you weren't seriously hurt and are still making plans to attend the LQS sale. Word of caution - you may find that you are even more stiff and sore tomorrow, so remember to take whatever the doc recommends for pain.

    Sorry about the car,but thank to the Lord you are ok. And like a true quilter and material shopper, you would crawl to the store. LOL I don't have a car now so My shopping is all online. I noticed some real deals. but alast, no money till Jan3 and SS.
    just be careful, because sometimes you do not feel the pain untill about 24 to 36 hours later. been there done that with a whiplash injury I got some year back. Hope you have something for pain and can sleep tonight.

    Take care of yourself. You might not feel like going tomorrow. They say it feels worse after 24 hours. I hope not in your case. Glad you are okay other than a few bangs and bruises.

    Only a quilter would total their car one day, and make plans for quilt shopping the following. Waaaay to go!

    So sorry about your accident, but the best thing is, that although you're banged up, you're not dead or in the hospital. Hope you're feeling up to shopping tomorrow.

    Still alive and trying to lay out the birthday quilt. Not enough fabric, so I've been raiding my stash. My face, face, neck and back will be better tomorrow, but I'm keeping a eye on a pain in the rib area. My young granddaughter is here to take care of the dogs and call 911 if needed. It'll be a learning experience for a 13 year old.
