BOMs Away - Boards and Borders



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.

Yesterday I was working all day at our regional tournament for Taekwondo, and even competing a tiny bit. I'm on the crutch because my hip flexor tweaked itself 3 days ago and was still refusing to hold my weight. It was a little "interesting" getting into a legal position, and I only placed one board since I had to start and maintain a tight crouch (translation: hardly any power availabe). But I succeeded in not DQ'ing, so that was happiness (and that's my broken board on the mat).


Here's what it really would have been like! This is Kavin, a dojang-mate about a year ahead of us, and schoolmate of our youngest. He went right after me, and it was fun seeing him do this successfully.


Well, mine would have gone like that mostly. . . Kavin resoundingly smashed 7 boards, and I would have tried only 3.  ;D


All that meant that today I just wanted a lazy day of doing nothing with the family. So the only BOM work I got done was about 1/4 of the binding stitching on Kelly's quilt. 


I'm eager to get this one taken off the longterm UFO list!!

How did things go at your end? - Did you do any work on BOMs this last week or so?

Lynette,

This was a fun post to read as I continue to discover more about you. I love that you compete in such a wonderful sport. I am presuming it is Karate - how wonderful!

Also, thanks for the link up. I hope to be a little more blog social as I cross things off the wedding list. We have much done!

Ooooh, sorry about your hip. You're a brave woman smashing boards like that. Very cool.

Not much sewing, but I did get to sandwich three quilts, so I'll have plenty to quilt in the coming two weeks. One I have to finish by Friday. You are an inspiration - not letting a hip keep you out of the tournament.

Um, just one board seems daunting to me! Does anyone ever injure themselves smashing boards??

I think that broken board is so much more impressive with your hip giving you fits, congratulations. We've been doing some spring cleaning and found our daughter's broken boards all signed and dated, such proud memories.

"Only 3" hahaha! Lynette you are amazing! And with a crutch, no less! The family that smashes together, stays together!
