BOM Meditation


This is block 12!!! of the Primitive Gatherings Penny Garden Block of the Month.  I totally recommend it you have never done a wool BOM to start with one from Primitive Gatherings.  You are guaranteed fabulous wool.  I prepped this block on Sunday to take with me on the Fabric Stalkers Sunriver Retreat 2012 which starts on Thursday...be still my tachycardic heart!  Although I will have all the block done I still have the joy of the wool appliqued border.

On Sat. while talking with Cakers, a Fabric Stalker and Woolie follower she mentioned something about making a list...of projects to be done by the month.  After our conversation I couldn't let go of the idea.  Why you ask?  Because it is already April and you know what that means...Primitive Gatherings may come up with another BOW (block of the week) starting in June!!!!!!

Although this is going to be a busy year for the Woolie (Me) and there are going to be many changes in my life...which always cause stress even when it is a good kind...I thought to myself, Self...how would it feel to be caught up month to month on the projects that fall into the BOM category.  When I made a list of those projects that fall into this category, I came up with 10!  If I spent a portion of one day on one BOM that is only 10 days out of the month...right??!!!  leaving 20-21 days to work on UFO's.  I am a freaking genius!  To start with I am going to make a check off list with the month at the top and the list of BOM's at the bottom and as I do them I will cross them off....oh the satisfaction of crossing off items on a list!  To get myself started on the right track I am only taking BOM projects to retreat so I can try and catch them up!  The ones that are from 2011 I will try and finish the blocks on retreat, the Bunny Hill ones, since neither were ever started I will make them 2012 BOM's and try to get 4 blocks done on each.  The 1st Sat. 2011 BOM is morphing into a totally different quilt...pheww...I got my work cut out for me...looks like I will be burning the midnight oil at retreat!

Here is the list!

1.) 1st Sat. Block of the Month 2012
2.) 1st Sat. Block of the Month 2011
3.) Stars and Sprigs (Homestead Hearth BOM 2011)
4.) House quilt (Anne/Sandy/Anna BOM 2012)
5.) Tisket a Tasket (Bunny Hill Free BOM from...humm 2009?)
6.) Snowbound (Bunny Hill Free BOM from....2010???)
7.) Summer Stars (BOW from Primitive Gathering 2011)
8.) Penny Garden (BOW from Primitive Gathering 2011)
9.) Civil War BOM 2011
10.) Harrington & Hannah (free BOM from Raspberry Rabbit 2012)

I feel better already!!!
