My next project is a baby quilt for the bass player in my nephew's band. Michael always introduces him as the motorcycle minister because he rides a motorcycle and is a part time minister. There was some reason the universe was telling me to buy that pink fabric with the skull and crossbones a while ago and now the reason has been reveled to me! I improv cut the fabrics and here are the blocks laid out on the design wall. The quilt will look nothing like this when done.
I watched the TDF last evening. I tape the live broadcast and then watch it at lunch and when I get home from work. There was a horrible crash yesterday which involved at least 20 riders that were going 33 - 34 miles an hour. Maybe you saw it on the news last night? The officials stopped the race, which in all my years of watching the tour, I have never seen happened before. The reason why they did this is because all the doctors and ambulances were taking care of the crash victims and if another crash would happen there would be no one to take care of those riders. In fact, shortly after this crash there was another crash, but there were no TV cameras or doctors to take care of those riders. The race was held up for about 18 minutes and then the whole group got rolling again. Three riders had to abandon, broken wrist, either a dislocated shoulder or broken collarbone, and a head injury and bleeding. The bleeding and head injury rider had hit the light pole. The rest of the riders including the yellow jersey picked themselves up and caught up to the stopped riders.
