BOMs Away - 21 Jan - Beach Walk and Baubles from Nat


http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yBA0dP9XZiY/TdlBWrZfbOI/AAAAAAAAAcM/mjC0IDWrqZY/s1600/BOM+Button.jpg

Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!

We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.
This week's link-up is at the bottom of this post.


Got "Whale Watch" for my McKenna Ryan "Beach Walk" quilt put together.  So cute.




And Scott put up a hook for me so I could hang these awesome knit baubles that Nat of Made in Home sent to me from England! Even though she had a brand-new beautiful baby boy! I was super impressed, beyond being impressed in the first place that she could knit these.




I just love having them hanging in the kitchen at the seating end of the bar. (Which is also my work space for fusible art blocks, heh!   





Hmm. . . wouldn't it look nice if I could put together a coordinating mini quilt to live under them?

A note:

It seems that anything coming into the U.S. from Europe these days is taking an incredibly long time - 4 to 8 weeks - so hang in there if you're waiting for something. It may be delayed in customs and not lost.

 What have you guys done on BOMs or interval projects lately? Weeklies are welcome along with regular projects that you’ve broken into monthly units, and –of course- true BOMs.   Share your eye candy and show off your progress since the last time you linked up! There are some wonderful monthly and weekly projects going on out there.

I know that whale took a whale of amount of time to make! McKenna's patterns are so detailed. Good for you to have made it. And love those knitted baubles. How creative! They're also very special, coming all the way from France. It's good you could find a place to show them off.

As always - impressed by your detailed projects and your patience with applique. Just noticed your new page design (I usually only see your posts in Google Reader) - sweet photos of your girls with their quilts:) And congrats on winning those knitted baubles from Nat - she has such great style!

Your whale block is so beautiful, so many sweet little details. Those knitted baubles are wonderful. I couldn't even imagine how to knit a ball shape like that let along one with lovely patterns.

Oh, I love your Beachwalk block. And thanks for the reminder that I have most of those patterns in a bag, just waiting for me to get the nerve to take them out and begin working on them. Maybe now is the time.
