Quilt ADD in therapy

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 - Book Break

       

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)


Oh!  I'm so sorry!

I abruptly decided to take a week off from all things quilting, and my brain's been hyper-focused on the audiobooks I help make.

We finished up the play Belinda, An April Folly in Three Acts, by A. A. Milne.   (Yep, that's the author of Winnie the Pooh fame, who also gave us this amusing romantic frolic.)  I love working with all the folks who help record, and also to everyone who oversees us and makes the covers for us (a much more finicky task than you'd think it would be!)  The audiobook is published now (and free) at 

Belinda: An April Folly in Three Acts





And we're hard at work on The Bat, by Mary Roberts Reinhart.  



This one will take a few more weeks to wrap up, as it's a dramatic reading, and it takes a while to gather everybody's recordings for all the chapters and then splice things together. It's rather like making an audio quilt! 


I've been volunteering with LibriVox for a couple of years, putting in 1-5 hours every week. This past week I enjoyed submerging all my free time into it.


And now, I'm headed over to my cutting table to draw out a monkey and an elephant to work up a Baby Photo quilt that my daughter asked for. Need to hustle on that, to beat Oliver if he decides to come early!  Official due date is 4 weeks from now. . .  Getting super excited to become a Grandma!!!



~*~*~*~

Have you worked on any BOM type projects recently? We'd love to see your progress!

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. It is always nice to take a week or so off and relax and unwind in listening to audiobooks sounds very relaxing. I am so excited for you on being a grandma. There is nothing like a grandbaby and I am sure you will spoil yours rotten. Have a great week and happy quilting.

  2. I had no idea you did that, Lynette! How fascinating. I never thought about how those audiobooks come together behind the scenes.

  3. Like Rebecca (above), I had no idea you did that! So you're a reader? I've often wondered about doing such a thing myself, but as I've listened to audio playback of myself reading to grandsons, I don't think I have a pleasant-sounding voice. But how fun for you! I'm happy for you to soon be a grandmother too. Oddly enough, another friend, also in Colorado, became a first-time grandma last week, to a boy named Oliver. Surely the most popular boys names these days are Henry and Oliver. Have fun anticipating his arrival!
