BOMs Away - Let's dig our way up out of this Rabbit Hole!


Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
Where we share what we're doing on a BOM-type project 
so they don't stall out in UFO-land!
(Linky at the bottom.)

I found my craft iron again! Although, I could swear in court it was not where I finally found it two days ago when I was searching for it three months ago to work on all those little leaves for Part 3 of "Down the Rabbit Hole". So now my BOM goal is to get this one caught up to Sarah Fielke's schedule by Halloween.

Today I managed to get right at 2/3 of those finicky little buggars prepped and stitched down:


All these leaves are reinforcing mightily that the freezer paper method is not my favorite applique process. I almost always highly prefer back-basting, but this is the approach that works best in this particular task, so I can move them all around a lot before machine stitching. 

I had to run to the grocery store for more freezer paper to start on these - stood in the aisle looking up at the shelf and said out loud, "Oh, cool!" when I saw the printing on the boxes:



What can I say? Little things make my day.

:D

How are things going on your end? Did you work on your BOMs recently?

Kate is literally in the process of moving cross-country right now, 
so we're going to completely understand if the link doesn't go up on her end

My word that block looks intricate. Believe it or not here in NZ we can't buy freezer paper at the supermarket. Only some quilt stores or online overseas!

Wow, that IS really cool. I guess they know that most of us buy it for appliqué instead of cooking, huh? lol Down the Rabbit Hole is awesome!
