BOMs Away Monday - 12 Nov '12 - Yeah! Getting there!

Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!

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


First of all, Thank You to my husband, his brother, and all our friends and extended family who are serving or have served in our armed forces. I hope you're having a great Veteran's Day weekend!!


My hubby's last deployment was at Camp Alamo in Afghanistan

Love this shot of him, but it sure gave me mixed feelings!!  lol



This was a super happy BOM week. :D

Got the LAST character block fused. "Decked Out for the Holly-Days" turned out a lot cuter in real life than I thought it was going to be.



Did up the snowflake filler block yesterday and sewed the quilt center together this morning!



Now I just need to do the patchwork border. That's good, because I've passed my tolerance level for time spent on a given project.   ;D  heh!

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

Happy Veteran's day to your family! That is a sweet shot of your hubby, but I know what you mean by mixed emotions. :)
PS- Your Christmas quilt is fabulous!! I love the "Decked Out" block.

I appreciate your husband's service and your's too! So hard to have your family separated under such trying times. Love the progress on your McKenna Ryan quilt. I love her designs but find the quilting part so challenging! You are pretty darn close to that point it looks like. Good luck.

Haha, I love your husband's picture. Mine has so many like that. Why do they even show those to us?? The Christmas BOM looks awesome - love all those characters!

It really feels good to finish up a project doesn't it? Even getting the center together feels like a finish to me :*) And please add my thanks to the service people in your family!

Ooooh, that McKenna Ryan Christmas quilt is gorgeous!

Your husband is so brave. I can imagine you have mixed feelings about that picture of him.

You are coming along fabulously on this quilt! LOVE it!

A great big THANK YOU to your husband for his dedicated service to our country! I have a military family too - I appreciate the sacrifices he makes for all of us!

Great pictures of your hubby! Love your blocks!!

Nancy said...

Thanks to your husband for his service. And your quilt is looking wonderful! Your idea of the turntable on the coffee table is a great one... thanks for that.

That photo would have made me nervous too! Your quilt is coming together very nicely. Intricate as always:)
