BOMs Away - Mother's Day, Ruffled Roses, and Jane


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 this post.

I have had the best time for Mother's Day - this is the first time in 11 years that I've had all three of the girls with me for the day. It was gorgeous outside, so we spent some time hiking around on the trails near the Air Force Academy. 

I just love these ladies.  :)  

Even when they're photo-bombing. . .   lol~!


We also got what has apparently become a regular Sunday visit from the nursery herd of mule deer in our area. They are a group of 9 mothers and juveniles that roam together. I think they are 3 mature mothers, 3 "babies", and 3 "teens".

Today the mothers and a teen settled down for rests under the ponderosas while the young ones lapped happily at the various bird feeders around the yard. Can you find all 5 deer in the shot below?

So - second week of the month is for Ruffled Roses. Got its trellis border finished and attached, along with the next stop-border to protect all those seam ends. 

And somehow I got 7 more Jane babies caught up despite a gruelling 1750-mile-in-two-days trip to St. Louis to move our oldest home from college for the summer. Got a nice little walk in with her on the Greenland trail by Palmer Lake on Friday morning. 

I hope you guys have had a nice week as well!


 What have you 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.

Looks like you had a great day with all of your daughters and the deer (I could only spot 2, even on close-up!. Looks like you live in a beautiful part of the world. Love the Ruffled Roses, the centre is just gorgeous!
