What’s up in the Universe?? {GIVEAWAY…ready…set…}

ETA: I was writing this post on Wednesday…in the midst of it my server went down. It is now 5am on Thursday when I am finally able to get back into my site. See! The Universe is whacko! I did get a nice message from my host
The server mysql-a.mac^&*%$#.com (aka mysql-a.%$#mac.com) is down. We have technicians on scene working to restore service as soon as possible. Unfortunately, we do not currently have an estimated time of repair. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing. About the 5th time in 5 months. I’m moving my site soon.

I apologize. I know I said I would have details here on Monday. The Universe must be whacko because I had 2 big life blows dealt me yesterday and today. One by someone I trusted for many years and one a la familia. As a DEAR friend of mine says “Family makes ya’ ’bout to bust!” To top it off my server went down as I was writing this post. Oy with the poodles already!!

    Tomorrow I will be giving the final details and “rules” for the Quilt Le Tour de France giveaway. The Tour ends one week from today. I will have the drawing on Monday, July 26th. Here is something I want to share:
    I came across this quote today. I love it

    “Today, more than ever, the crafts have the mission to reconnect the human being to the Earth and her substances,
    bring healing to the senses and soul,
    and foster the creative capacities of the human being” – Renate Hiller

    Renate Hiller’s site is Fiber Craft Studio
    And a wonderful video by her

    Tour Days 2 & 3…boom boom pow – look at the Quilty goodness!

    Oh my Stars and Garters! Will they ever stop falling down? Yesterday I believe every single cycling team said hello to the road with their bodies. Today the cobblestones did them in. After mechanical issues Lance lost over 2 mins and dropped to 18th. He was not the only one with mechanical problems. It’s gonna be a long three weeks!

    On the quilting side of our Quilt le Tour…
    Look at what Maddie has done!
    And I see a few others with pictures up in our Flickr group but I am not sure of your names. If you have pics to share please be sure to add them to our flickr pool. Again, if you haven’t joined the group on flickr please do so. !!! I will only be drawing names for the giveaway from the members!!!
    Me? Aside from helping my son {yes, the one that has was hit by cars 2x in June} clean up a nasty road rash infection on his ankle {and no, there is no way he is going to stop riding} I am slowly working on my quilt blocks… but first I have a custom cycling hat to finish up for a Rep from Specialized

    and then I have 3 hats to make for an ALL LADIES Alley Cat race. They will be given out as race prizes. So, yeah, that’s my excuse for not showing my Quilt Le Tour progress.

    Here are a couple of peeks at some of the giveaway items:
    Penny from Sew Take a Hike will be giving fat quarters of:
    Alexander Henry ‘Starling”
    Flea Market Fancy “Barbells”
    Momo Wonderland “Snip Snip”
    Heather Ross “Kelp Stripe”

    More tomorrow!

    Confessions of a Gadget Geek

    I am a very simple person. I believe in living a simple life style so others can simply live. . . but I have a nemesis . . .
    “Hi, I’m Robyn and I am a Gadget addict, a Techie and a computer snob. {Macs rule}” My confession will help you understand my dilemma. I have never, N-E-V-E-R owned a 1/4 inch presser foot. You know, the kind all the with-it, famous, and serious quilters use?
    Like this for newer Berninas:

    or this for the older Berninas

    I own both an old 1530 and a newer Bernina and they are both living in want of some 1/4 inch love.
    I suppose for now I will continue on using my plain vanilla ho hum presser feet.
    Don’t even get me started on my lust issue with the new iPad or that I now am limited to blogging my photos from this
