The good is that my Tis The Season Quilt is finished. I posted the top a few posts ago but now it is quilted and bound, and I am really happy with it. I love the stripey border and binding and the little touch of gold it brings to the colours, as well as pulling all the other colours together.
Here's a close up of one of the corners. I mainly did stitching in the ditch but added two little rows in the outer border.

Now for the bad....
Yesterday I was travelling home along one of our major highways and it started hailing. I pulled over to the side of the road and waited it out with my three passengers. The hail stones were the size of golfballs and the noise in the car was loud. But being the true blogger I am ( smile) I took out my camera and took some photos. This is looking out the front of the windscreen with the hail on the wipers.
And this ordinary photo shows the road after the hail had stopped - This is a three lane highway ( in one direction) and it was just covered in ice.
The bad news is that there are dents in the car - we haven't really assessed what we will do about it yet.
It is just one of those things.
