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.
How was your weekend? Mine was fun. We had our next belt test on Saturday - we're at brown belt now, with Devon one cycle higher at brown senior.
We were approved to sponsor one of the incoming cadets at the Air Force Academy. That means we can take him off base with us if he has liberty (free time) approved. He's in basic training right now, and they get the one day of liberty if they have a sponsor. So we checked him out for Doolie Day Out, and he came to our testing with us. Fun thing - his name sparked a question from me that I couldn't resist, and he grinned and told me, yes he is actually related to the creator of Star Trek. His grandfather was Gene's cousin. Bunch of nerds in our family, so we loved that trivia of his. Sure was soothing to have him with us all day while we miss our own young military man - particularly this week after the attack that killed 4 Marines and a Navy man on home soil stunned us all.
That hit to the equilibrium also made me dump my regular schedule for BOM work. Instead of working on Garden Friends, I focused on my patriotic project and finished the rest of the paper-pieced fireworks blocks for the Americana QAL.
I had fun playing with the various scraps in my bin for these. I had lots of those dark blue scraps, so I could keep the sky pieces the same for some uniformity, while all the other parts vary for each block.
Did you work on your BOMs? Go ahead and share so we can keep each other motivated to keep them from stalling out. :D
