BOM's Away

So I almost didn't make my 4th block for the local BOM in time, which would have meant that I would have to pay for the next block.  Thankfully, I made it in time and I went off on Saturday to show my block and pick up the next one!

The Legacy Sampler.  Temperance "T" (January BOM,  or Block 4)
The Legacy Sampler.  Star of Victory (December BOM,  or Block 3)

The Legacy Sampler.  Courage at Pickett's Mill (November BOM,  or Block 2)

The Legacy Sampler.  Woven Union (October BOM,  or Block 1)

The Legacy Sampler.  Soldiers Crossing (February BOM,  or Block 5)
I also have been making those test blocks of these blocks in the Martinique Fabrics rather than repeating them here,  I can do a recap of those blocks when I reveal my finished 5th Block in a few weeks.

I am also in progress on the 2nd Block in the Sugar Block Club BOM, the first Block of the Craftsy BOM, and both Block 1& 2 of the Skillbuilder BOM being held at PileOFabric.  I dropped making the block of the Week for the Women's Right to Vote Along.  I kept trying to make the blocks but it didn't work for me.  I need a consistent level of instructions and this Block of the Week just varied too much.  It almost seemed to depend too much on the Block program to make or obtain the templates.  I may be mistaken, but I think its for the best that I leave off working on this one.  I think it will all work out in the end, especially since I have found a couple BOM's that I think I will really enjoy.  My hope though is I can really stick with it.  I plan to link up to the BOM's AWAY linky and then take a look at what others are doing about the web!

See Ya Later!


  1. Hi, Shanna! You've done a great job with these blocks. I can totally understand dropping something because of instructions challenges. If the project I posted with the link-up weren't for my cousin who passed away, I'd be dropping it big time. Talk about insufficient/messed up instructions! Oh, well. I'll muddle through it for her and in the end next year I'll have two awesome gifts for her mom and her widower!

  2. I totally agree with you. Life is way to short to be frustrated at any time. Too many other things to do that you will enjoy more. Have fun, smile alot and forget things that worry you. XX Kathleen
