BOM Week

Firstly, I would like to thank Robin, from Crafty Musings, for the Kreativ Blogger Award. Robin is a busy little quilter. Her Jane Stickle blocks are fantastic and the Autumn House BOM, she recently started, is right up my alley! I look forward to seeing each block. Thanks again Robin.

What's that? More free BOM's! Have you seen, Baltimore Bliss, Season of Grace and Geese in the Forest. Sadly, I will have to save these for another day, as my project boxes are full. Or, maybe I could purchase a few more project boxes!

Last week, I did a little more organizing. Once I found out the shelf life of DMC floss, I decided to better organize mine. I'm still working on it, as I have about 250 older skeins. The new floss can wait. Because the skeins unravel and lose shape, I decided to transfer them to bobbins. They will be stored in DMC's floss organizer boxes.

Last week was also BOM week. I finished January's A Tisket, A Tasket block and The Bugs, from Noah's Ark.

Then I completed the February block of Country Calendar.

Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart. ~Author Unknown

Until next week.....happy quilting!

Karen, I love all your FREE BOMS! I need to get going on the bugs from Noah's ark and then the last block. I am looking forward to having it complete!

You have such great projects in the making - there are so many new things popping up all the time. I literally will never live long enough to do all that I want to - but, again, I have been saying that ever since I fell victim to the quilting addiction over 30 years ago! It is so apparent that you also enjoy every minute you spend doing this wonderful thing called quilting! Enjoy!

Hi Karen,
I just love all your stitching. I really want to try it, but I can't add another project to my "to do" list. I was a past counted cross stitcher and had 6 boxes of that thread. Good luck organizing all the DMC floss. Not sure why they don't just sell it on those cardboard bobbins.

Hi Karen,

Your T-A-T block looks wonderful. I love the colors. Thanks for the heads up for the other BOM's. I printed off Baltimore Bliss. I'd love to do this one in wool.

I was so inspired by your organizational ways so I went out and bought more plastic bins and have been spending the morning sorting and labeling. My studio is looking great, thanks to you.

Have a super stitching week!
