Quilt ADD in therapy

My photo
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 - From the Heart ~Flimsy Alert~

 


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.)

It was 88 degrees yesterday afternoon when we took this photo. . . 

My "From the Heart" BOM quilt top is completed!!
Pattern is from The Quilt Company, designed by Arlene Stamper and Melissa Harris



. . . and now this! We're supposed to get at least 6 inches by suppertime. 


It's Snowing!


Colorado weather is always entertaining!!

Truthfully, though, this weather is a Godsend. We've had terrible wildfires in the Rockies for 4 or 5 weeks, now. Six or Seven major fires in Colorado alone, and our skies that are usually technicolor blue have been brown the whole time.

Supposed to be like this:



But it's been like the following photo since late July/early August. There's a mountain RIGHT THERE. Four blocks gets you to the hiking trail!



 It's been awful. It keeps your sinuses messed up and angry, and makes you cough every so often, which freaks people out if you're at the store. People with issues like asthma and COPD are having an especially difficult time. Seems like we wear our masks as much for the smoke as for the pandemic.
  :(

The worst part is that all but 2 of those enormous fires have been human-caused. Come on, people!! Get with the program. Drought. Fires. FIRE BAN. Knock it off with your stupid selfishness, and keep your smoking out of the forests and stop ditching patrols so you can sneak in a campfire. And what the heck??? California has also been having terrible, TERRIBLE fires this year, and one of those, forcing many thousands of people to evacuate, was caused by someone setting off pyrotechnics FOR A GENDER-REVEAL PARTY. What the heck??? Those parties seem pretty excessive to begin with, but who in their right mind thinks it's anywhere near an OK idea to set off pyrotechnics in a drought zone that's already besieged with record-breaking fires?? Please, PLEASE use an overabundance of caution in our situation, everyone.

Does anyone else wonder how much longer we humans will be able to breathe on this planet with all the crazy wildfires we have all over the planet burning up so many oxygen-producing trees, and the Amazon being continuously torn down for "development"?

Anyway, I apologize for running late on BOMs Away. We had to make an unplanned emergency road trip up to Nebraska to help Scott's folks. 

What's up at your end?

~*~*~

How about you? Has any BOM type work been happening there?
Sure would love to see!

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.

  1. The moisture, even in the form of snow, was welcome across Colorado. I do wish it had been just rain though... Your quilt top is bright and cheery.

  2. It just goes to show what a year 2020 has been when early snow is a welcome relief from wildfires! It's hard enough to breathe with having to wear masks, let alone air quality compromised with ash and smoke. How good it is to have a ray of sunshine in the form of a finished BOM to cheer the days! Lovely!
