Friday Fun Day (delayed a bit) & The Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

I didn't get much sleep last night (Too excited about Heirloom and Pernilla's Journey coming today I think).

Some of the almost 39 prints in Heirloom
Our Friday Tutorial for The Quilted Fish is going to be slightly delayed today. So I thought you might like to see this fun tutorial from Sew Take A Hike a diaper wristlet with changing pad out of Laurie Wisbrun's new fabric, so cute!

On to the Giveaway... today I decided to let you pick your own. I am giving away a $25 gift certificate to my shop. You get to pick your own prize. You can even save it for future use with one of the fun lines that is coming later.



Okay this one you get to work for as well... Here is my favorite quote that uses the word "Intrepid":

"She'd not known she had it in her. She was feeling...well...rather intrepid..." Chloe Zanders - Dark Highlander by Karen Marie Moning (honestly if you haven't read her you don't know what your missing)

So your mission if you choose to accept it is... either come up with your own quote that uses the word Intrepid or find one from somewhere else. This is still a random giveaway so no matter the quote you can win. But I will be choosing a few for the pages of my website in the future.

Leave one comment with your entry quote and good luck. Giveaway runs until next Friday July 29th at midnight.

See you in a little while with a treasure of a tutorial from Jana...

Man it is hard to find "intrepid" quotes! I wanted to give you one that wasn't already mentioned and this is what I found:

“It is very perplexing how an intrepid frontier people, who fought a wilderness, floods, tornadoes, and the Rockies, cower before criticism, which is regarded as a malignant tumor in the imagination.”

Edward Dahlberg quotes (American Novelist, 1900-1977)

It's not exactly a quote but the first thing I thought of when I saw your challenge was the UK adventurer Ed Stafford who recently walked the length of the Amazon and has been on UK telly quite a lot in recent weeks...here's a link to a newspaper article about his adventure (note the headline!!) http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1302921/Is-Britains-intrepid-hero-Scott-Antarctic.html Thanks for the giveaway!

Captain James T. Kirk: Personal log --stardate 4309.2. We have
established that the thing which destroyed the U.S.S. Intrepid and
the Gamma 7A system is an incredibly huge but simple cellular being
whose energies are totally destructive to all known life. Both Mr.
Spock and Dr. McCoy have volunteered to go in a specially equipped
shuttlecraft to penetrate the cell, find a way to destroy it and
free the ship. Dr. McCoy has the medical and biological knowledge.
Mr. Spock is better suited physically and emotionally to stand the
stress. Both are right, both are capable... and which of my friends
do I condemn to death?

(Can you tell I love Star Trek?) And at least it'll make you laugh - if you remember how William Shatner talks!

"My little brother is the most intrepid climber I ever did see" - Graham (age 5, referring to his 14 mo old brother after explaining the word intrepid to him).

I do love Michelle's quote...

And where was this diaper wristlet tutorial a few months ago?!?! I know I will have no time to make it before the babies are potty trained now that they are here.

AMKreations said...

Every artist, no matter what medium with which they create, intrepidly display's their work in an exhibit to be critiqued by an audience of peers...they must be prepared for either praise or criticism.

This is just a thought I had...art is so subjective...and you really must be able to fearlessly release your work for others to see...knowing full well that there are those who will like or dislike it.

Thanks for a chance to win.

What a challenge! I found this quote from a movie.
"Dance is a very powerful drug Mr. Keane.

But, one must shoulder its challenges with intrepid countenance if one is ever to reap its rewards."

Heres one I found for 'intrepidly'...hope it counts.

Every one knows the fine story of Perseus and Andromeda; how the lovely Andromeda, the daughter of a king, was tied to a rock on the sea-coast, and as Leviathan was in the very act of carrying her off, Perseus, the prince of whalemen, intrepidly advancing, harpooned the monster, and delivered and married the maid.
Moby Dick LXVIII-CXXXIV by Melville, Herman

I love it, the damsel in distress rescued by the intrepid prince...classic love story.

Emilie said...

Ok, here's the thing. I don't know any good quotes, but here's what I have: when I was a little, there was a show called: Les intr├ępides (the intrepids). It was literally one of my favorite shows. I live in Qu├ębec Canada, so this show is in french. Here is a link to the show and a clip of it on YouTube:

Follow the steps of the fearless, the daring, the bold, and take an intrepid step into a whole new quilting world - that vast world of free-motion quilting that celebrates spontaneity and quirky charm.

Janet said...

To follow up on Our Busy Little Bunch's quote, Wikkipedia also says this "In 1976 British-born Canadian author William Stevenson published a biography of Stephenson, A Man Called Intrepid. Some of the book's statements have been called into question, notably in Nigel West's Counterfeit Spies (1998). "Intrepid" was probably not Stephenson's codename, but BSC's telegraphic address in New York."

Not living an intrepid life is like sitting on the sofa and letting everything pass you by.
? stupid?

here is one i found:
"The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible,
but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore...
Unlike the mediocre, intrepid spirits seek victory over those things that seem impossible...
It is with an iron will that they embark on the most daring of all endeavors...
to meet the shadowy figure without fear and conquer the unknown."
--Ferdinand Magellan, Explorer (1520)

The most intrepid shopper finds making a choice from all those fabrics rather daunting, but exciting at the same time

Mom C said...

As you may recall, we have enjoyed the 32 ft. Intrepid for a number of years, and for the last four, the 35 ft. Intrepid. We have used it extensively as a tender to our 130 ft. motor yacht, the Silver Shalis. We have towed it throughout the Mediterranean during the summers of '07 and '08, traveling many thousands of miles from the Turkish to the Spanish Coast, and all places in between.
I just knew Intrepid had to be used militarily, like USS Intrepid, or Starship Intrepid or HMS Intrepid. But it is the name of a line of water craft. But I can see Capt Kirk and Spock piloting it into deep space. Great name, great images.

Sue said...

Wow this was a tough one. I found a bunch of quotes but most were already posted so I decided to go another route. This is from Intrepid Potash's 2nd quarter results statement. Not very exciting, but interesting that two businesses with polar opposite products share the same name. "Intrepid estimates that it produced between 205,000 and 215,000 tons of potash and sold between 220,000 and 230,000 tons of potash. Production within the quarter includes the benefit of approximately one extra month than historically normal of production from our Moab solar solution mine because of favorable brine levels and harvest conditions. Intrepid estimates its average net realized sales price for potash sold during the quarter was approximately $455 -- $465 per ton. "

I know you already did the giveaway. I don't care. Here's a good quote:

It is easier to find a score of men wise enough to discover the truth than to find one intrepid enough, in the face of opposition, to stand up for it.

-A. A. Hodge

Doh! I see someone already found this one for you. I like it a lot!

I am drooling over all the Heirloom I have been seeing around blogland lately. Joel Dewberry can do no wrong in my books :)

But the stubborn descendants of the twenty-one intrepid people who plowed through the mountains in search of the sea to the west avoided the reefs of the melodic mixup and dancing went on until dawn.
