Quilt ADD in therapy

Colorado, United States
Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love a wide variety of styles and techniques encompassing both machine and hand work. I am a longarm quilter who can work for you. I enjoy any style, from pantographs to all-over to full custom, ranging from traditional to modern. I love bringing vintage tops to life and am willing to work with a challenging quilt top. Instagram: lyncc_quilts

BOMs Away - Of Loss and Re-engagement

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.)

R.I.P. David
We loved you, Nephew, and will miss you.
At 26, this man was far too young to go. Alcohol poisoning is the apparent cause, 
but investigations are expected to go on for a few months.

Our family is still reeling from an inconceivable loss. After two weeks of stunned lassitude, today I pulled out this project that has languished for several months.

Dinner Plate Dahlia - I made the B set of petals.

I do apologize for dropping off the planet for a time.


We would love to see any BOM work you're done lately.

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.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  9. Lynette, we have missed you! I am so sad to hear that the reason for your absense was a family tragedy. It is so hard to lose someone and so young. I will pray for your family to find peace. I wish I could give you a hug and tell you how to make the hurt go away.

  10. I know the devastation - we lost our 28 year old daughter in law to pretty much the same thing. I'm so sorry
