BOMs Away - 5 Nov 2012 - Once Upon a Star - Happy Birthday, Devon, and Halloween Fun

Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!

(We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.)


"Sealed With a Twist" was a far simpler block than most of the Wish Upon a Star blocks, so I got the whole thing done up this week.  :)



This Monday is our second daughter's 19th birthday. I worried that she might see the quilt  from the last post that we brought up for her, and think "Oh, great - another one." (Because she already has two Mom Quilts up at her dorm room.) But what she said was "Oh, cool! I wanted to ask for another one!" She was cute as bug for Halloween: 



In case you wondered, yes - insects can be zombified, too apparently.




In another state, her older sister and friends had a blast putting together Avenger costumes.



Heather did an amazing job on her Loki outfit this past summer.



And I forgot to share one of our pics from our earlier trip to St. Louis, which is silly - because this crowd can really appreciate a humorous yarn-bombing. This is Barry Flanagan's much-loved statue, "Thinker on a Rock," which he has loaned to Washington University in St. Louis. 



Somebody did a terrific job knitting him a vest. They even used a huge gauge to keep it in scale with this 12-foot intellectual!

And a final thought - My Dad and his wife are enjoying a tour of China. Wouldn't this dragon make a great quilting study?

What have you guys done on BOMs or interval projects lately? Weeklies are welcome along with regular projects that you’ve broken into monthly units, and –of course- true BOMs.   Share your eye candy and show off your progress since the last time you linked up! There are some wonderful monthly and weekly projects going on out there. :D
