BOMs Away - Fancy Forest Flimsy!!



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.


Oh, gosh, you guys! My head is so crammed right now with wedding organization and the fitting/sewing of 14 outfits that I can't remember anymore what I have and haven't taken care of in my personal realm. Sorry this is so late!

I even finished my Fancy Forest quilt top the morning I put these posts up!!


Isn't it wonderful, particularly under the pines we are fortunate to live under? It's no mystery why this quilt called to me.

Here's a wee bit of the real sewing that's going on here:


Tudor wrists on the three ladies-in-waiting gowns I need to do up. There is the bridal gown, of course, two moms, two dad, a groom, 4 squires, and a flower girl - maybe a second if there's time to do that one up as well. Luckily, one of the bridesmaids is a costume major who's doing her own, and she'll be traveling here from California a full week before the wedding (mid-December) to help with hems, adjustments, and last minute decor. Bless her~!!  :D 

An hour or two of quilting time on BOM day is a wonderful break for complete ME time to do something that is my normal sphere of creation and doesn't carry the mental intensity of figuring out all the pattern adjustments for various bodies. But I am enjoying the clothing saga, and the items are coming out so pretty.

Have you done any BOM work this past week or so?

BOMs Away - Fancy Forest Quartered



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.


Today I got all the quarters sewn together for Fancy Forest. Heather's down for the weekend, and I had a little help from her cute kitty. Gotta love cats!






I must have accidentally erased the pic of the first quarter that I finished. We took an afternoon jaunt into the city for a little sunshine-catching and Pokemon gathering. I love all the art points of interest to be found. Fun times.  :)

BOMS Away - Triathlon & Americana



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.


Trying to post from my phone. . . Rather interesting!

I've been up here in Nebraska since Thursday night so I could be with Devon for her big U.S. Nationals Triathlon. What
 a super exciting experience! She absolutely amazes me.  This was her very first Triathlon, and it's straight into the Nationals age group Olympic length race. (She qualified for it when she did a sprint dual thingy 6 weeks ago.) And she even finished in the top half.  The distances, to the best of my memory, are almost a mile of swimming, just under 26 miles of biking, and then 10K running (about 6.2 miles). All in the summer heat with no breaks. It was quite thrilling!







Now we're visiting grandparents, and I've been working on tucking tails on my DOD Americana. I'm almost all finished with the quilting - just the fill work left around the border windmills.



And I officially despise posting from my phone!  ;D

Have you done any BOM work done this past week or so? I  know summer gets crazy!

Hi! I hope you've had a nice weekend. I managed to get the thistles all sewn up - that's all the blocks finished up for Fancy Forest! 


Next BOM time I hope to get a quilt quadrant assembled, at least.

BOMs Away - A Bit

We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.
This week's link-up is at the bottom of the post.


Yikes, I'm late again. We had company over the weekend and I completely forgot to put the post up. Weather was so nice, watermelons are delicious right now . . . there may have been some picnicking with Pokemon Go involved. . . We had a good time!

I didn't get much BOM work done this round - just the prepping for the final set of blocks. All the colors are cut and organized, ready for stitching next weekend.


~*~*~*~

Did you have a good weekend? Did you get any BOM work done this past week or so?  :D
