Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!
(We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.)
Off we trekked to Garden of the Gods. Let me tell you, this is one of the most beautiful little pockets of geographic amazingness, and it's so accessible - and perfectly FREE!
The really fun part was the reception the quilt got. I'd talked myself into just doing my thing and not minding one bit if anyone thought it was weird for somebody to be holding up a quilt in a public park (gorgeous Saturday weather = lots of folks out there). I needn't have worried - far from getting odd looks, we actually got at least six requests from random park-goers to please wait long enough for them to get a shot, too! lol!!
First full-family shot we've been able to get for a long time:
Scott saves Marissa from being crushed!
Sisters have a new clubhouse?
Heather, Devon, and Mariss with the Three Graces and Cathedral Spires formations in the background.
I think this was the Tower of Babel formation behind me and Marissa, but I might be turned around:
My silly ape man!
In the midst of all these gorgeous red formations, you have a striking white mount:
The Kissing Camels are a favorite with everyone:
And, look! We found Manfred (from the Ice Age movies):
I'm thrilled with the quilt, bolstered by its public reception, and antsy to get more of my BOMs and UFOs out of the storage unit. Scott says he knows right where those boxes are, too - 18 feet back from the front, behind floor-to-ceiling packed-in obstacles. :P Forget that! I'll just have to be happy with the couple of projects that made it here to the apartment for the next 2 or 3 months!
I'll never run out of Dear Jane work while we're waiting to get a house. A whole slew of Babies finished up this week. Scott loves the F-16 impression they make:
But these two snuck in early this morning for a "Santa" impression, having missed yesterday's "flight" photo op:
That's 10 altogether! A whole month's worth. I'm so excited to have half the catching-up finished now. We'll see if I can get the other 30 finished before the August fabric shipment!
Have you made progress on any of your BOMs or interval projects? Link up here to show it off! :D
