Quilt ADD in therapy

Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love a wide variety of styles and techniques encompassing both machine and hand work. I am a longarm quilter who can work for you. I enjoy any style, from pantographs to all-over to full custom, ranging from traditional to modern. I love bringing vintage tops to life and am willing to work with a challenging quilt top. Instagram: lyncc_quilts

BOMs Away - Crunch Time

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.
Hey there! Bear with me over the next 4 weeks if I'm a little slow getting this linky up or not as social as I used to be. It's crunch time for the final draft of my thesis to be turned in, and I've got 4 chapters remaining to fix up.  This is this week's task:
These last chapters are in my "Throw Down" stage, where all research and analysis notes are pasted into documents that are organized by divisions of information. Meaning, with the chapter for this week, there are 55 pages of such info copy/pasted as I worked with the individual items (and there are thousands of them) into an organized Word file under appropriate Navigation Pane headings. But when you get to each heading, it's literally a pool of individual items/thoughts that need to be logically ordered and then massaged into coherent paragraphs. I expect this one will finalize around 9ooo words, something like 30 pages.
Sooooo - I was busy yesterday finishing the clean-up of footnote formats in last week's chapter, and the sum total of BOM work I got done was quilting the maze work on the dark half of THREE ENTIRE log cabin blocks in Kelly's quilt!  Woohoo!!  ;D 
But hey, something is better than nothing.

Have you done any work on your BOMs recently? Hope my U.S. friends are enjoying their Labor Day weekend!


  1. The quilting will wait and you'll feel good getting that done.
    See you in a few weeks

  2. You can do it! It's only four more weeks, and then you're smarter! :D

  3. Yes, some sewing is better than none. I bet you're doing a bang-up job on your thesis. Hang it there. This too shall pass.
