BOM Rehab... Were You There?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!
What could be better than being around the people 
you love and/or doing what you love to do!
I actually celebrated the week before... 
this happens sometimes with the hubby's birthday
being right there around Mother's Day. 

Some moms made it into the Rehab though....
Block 12 has not arrived in mailbox's yet for those of us working on
the FQS  Mystery BOM , so alternative projects needed to be found.
And amazingly enough... that didn't seem to be hard to do!

I'm seeing stars!
 Cheryl from Polka Dots and Ric Rac pulled out an
ancient BOM to work on.

Satu has a couple of BOM projects she is
catching up on! I love her Raining Cats and Dogs block!
I am so tempted to do this one!

This is a sweet little BOM embroidery block made by Sherry
at Blessings from our Nest. She managed to find a little
bit of time in Rehab too!

This is from Celine from Esprit Patch. It's part of her It Just Takes 2 
BOM poject. She only has a few more blocks to make now!

It seems that Messy Karen was in the rehab too!
This is her Oh My Stars BOM...

You can find the information for this block of the month at 
I have seen this BOM before and really loved all of their star patterns! 
I would love to make them ... maybe soon!

 And although I did a lot of sewing over the weekend...
this is where I left off with my Block 11. The units are ready to put together!
That's 11 out of 12! woohoo!
actually, I made an extra block, so I am at 12 now!

 I am happy to have finished the Busy Work mini projects from Pam Buda.

I saw so many beautiful  Pocket Patchwork finished last week 
I am glad I had a chance to catch up! This was a very fun project... thank you Pam!!!
I have to say... it was a 5 Bobbin weekend!

How was your Mother's Day?

wait wait wait!!! I have a couple more people that were up late in the Rehab!

From Endlessly Diverted, Helen is working on her sashing for 
her 2008 (yes that's right) Designer BOM! So close to the finish line now!!!
I like that sashing... it's a pretty simple solution with a big impact!

This one is from Kim at A Peach in Stitches blog.
She has a little whoopsie here (she already noticed)
but a quick little fix and her final block is done!!!

Good morning Sinta

Once again this week I did not get to work on my BOM's. Being Mothers day i had to get 2 Amy Butler Weekender Bags finished and 7 scarves made for my family. Back to it all this week, yahoo...
Keep up the motivation, what happens when you finish the FQS Mystery?????

Messy Karen said...

a bit of a struggle to get started on another project.

Lesley said...

Thanks for sharing so many great blocks. I love what you did with Pam Buda's patchwork pockets! Gorgeous!

Darlene said...

Wow, lots and lots of productivity for so many in Rehab. :-)

Block #12 arrived today - woohoo! I'll be in Rehab this week. I found an old BOM to work on, as well.

Hi Sinta. I know Cheryl, she is wonderful.
I had a lovely Mothers Day! Hope you did too!
XO Kris

Your Pam's Patchwork Pocket is really beautiful, love your fabrics choice. XXX

Gosh, scrolling through those projects makes me wish I could take on a couple more BOMs! LOL!! Glad you enjoyed a happy Mother's Day (at some point this past week or so)!! Hugs! :)

Mary said...

I'm officially inspired! I've loved all the pictures I've seen here and then went to read Thought and Found to look at the Oh My Stars quilt along because I love star quilts. So now I plan to join in. We send you photos weekly rather than monthly if we have something done, yes? It's been so much fun to see everyone's work with all the different projects and fabric choices!

BOM!!! LOVE that! Sinta, sounds like you are enjoying time at the machine! Cute stuff always to be found here.

Glad to know your mother's day was fun and LOL about smokey the bear.
Your grand is adorable!!

Happy belated birthday wishes to Fred, too.

much love,
