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.)
Hey, there, folks! Please forgive me about missing BOMs Away last week - Scott and I got absorbed in doing some super-cleaning and switching-around of house function in several areas, and I totally forgot to do a link-up for you. That was all on me.
This week I have "The Little Soldier" to share.
He is the first of the twelve classic nutcrackers in Sue Garman's pattern. I am saving the embroidery to do when all the blocks have been appliqued, so I'll know what-all threads and embellishments I'll want to buy. His nose will be waiting quite a while! :D
Those eyebrows are the tiniest things I have ever done in the back-basting method, coming in at less than 1/8 inch wide! I'm super happy with how they turned out. The cruncher teeth were done mostly by paper-piecing, and I'll probably end up replacing them with a second try at it, as I didn't leave enough on the edges for as good a turn as I like to have. I suspect that my next nutcracker's teeth unit will be a lot happier to me, and if that actually turns out to be the case, I'll redo this one. If not, I'll leave it as "good enough," since you really can't see what I'm talking about unless you have it in hand and are looking quite closely.
How is BOM work going at your place?
Kate over at Katie Mae Quilts has joined me in hosting this meet-up,
and linking up from either end puts you on the party at both sides.
