BOMs Away - The Stalled Edition



Welcome to the Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays! 
We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately. 
This week's link-up is at the bottom of the post.


Have you guys done any work on BOMs this week? This made week 2 in a row for me of no progress in that arena. My day was filled with a little family fun and a lot of wedding planning/action-start-up. Part of that wedding action was actually some quilting, but not BOM work. I really need "Fireflies in the Meadow" off my FMQ station and my basting pins freed up. So I worked on that. 


These pics are actually from yesterday, when I was finishing the work with the glow-in-the-dark thread. I ***love*** this fabric collection! And I'm so happy with how the quilt has been turning out. The glow-in-the-dark thread is AWESOME, although it's almost as fussy as metallics to quilt with. The center and the border are both more-openly quilted, and after I put in the grass, I wasn't happy with the caving-in of the band between it and the ditched edge of the center. So I went around a second time making clover, mushrooms, and fern buds. Very fun, and looks terrific in the dark!



Today I got going on the outer foot of the border. It's just over half finished, so tomorrow I should be breaking the machine back down to put on the binding. And then I'll have to figure out what to use as a cover project for Top Secret  - oh! My "Garden Friends" BOM will work fine. It, too, needs applique stitching, so the machine will be in the right mode.

BOMs Away - Go get 'em, Kyle!



Welcome to the Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays! 
We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately. 
This week's link-up is at the bottom of the post.


I did zero quilting work yesterday, which means no BOM work here to report this week.

Instead, we spent the day celebrating Kyle's long-sought entrance to the Marines. Staff Sgt. Green picked him up in the evening to report for Basic Training. We won't see him for 13 weeks, and then it'll be a whirlwind wedding so they can use his post-Basic leave for some honeymooning before the rest of his initial training. So Devon will be mopey since she won't see him for a while, and I'm actually rather heartsick myself since he's now left our home for good (he's been living in our lower level for six months, which is a mother-in-law-to-be's dream, to be honest). 

Go smash it, Kyle - we know you'll succeed and look forward to greeting the better man you'll be on the other side! The Crucible? No problem! You got that when it comes!!
