Welcome to the Link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
so they don't stall out in UFO-land!

Hi! I finished all four "Crescendo" applique blocks for my Harmony BOM:
And more importantly, I got the taxes done!
Thank goodness for the extra month this year. I just didn't have the energy to work these up before I got the COVID vaccinations - On Saturday, 10 days after the second shot, I suddenly had so much more energy than before! I still need to test and see if I can do cardio workouts, but for the first time since getting Covid in October, I actually felt that impatience while sitting - that "I can't just sit here, I've got to get up and do something!" feeling!!!!
Until now, it's been an exercise in forcing myself to work through cement and molasses to do anything at all, a stretching out of how long I could last against the slog, but never a feeling of energy available and eager to go. I'm not quite 100% pre-Covid me, but at least 85% now, and the last three days I've only needed short sitting breaks after long physical work stretches. My house is getting reclaimed after seven months of serious neglect, and it FEELS GOOD!
Sooooo grateful I decided to vaccinate! I did luck out and my body has learned something about fighting the long-Covid. Here's to hoping that the inability to fight it away has been my problem all along, and not actual permanent damage to my heart and vascular system!
But back to quilting! Have you worked on a BOM type project lately?
