BOMs Away - Kitties, Moons, and Hearts

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


Welcome to the 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.


First of all, we've had some more family changes. Some of you remember that we lost our Siamese, Koko, a week before Thanksgiving. Well, we also lost our gorgeous calico at the end of December. We miss you, Selma! You were a truly fabulous kitty and beloved member of our family for 13 years.
 
 
 
 
So, with heavy hearts and empty spots in the family, we recently stopped at a shelter and adopted this gorgeous little guy. His name is Navarre, and he's an amazing DYNAMO! Soooo friendly, instantly loving every person he meets with all his little heart. He's incredibly smart, and a perfect gentleman who's never once had a litter mishap.  :)
 
 
 
 
 
 
Now, about BOMs. . .  This week I made my last two "Hello, Moon" blocks. 
 
 
 
 
 
I ended up going with the cow that Heidi came up with instead of the fox in the original BOM group. I love that fox! I wanted both blocks, and had decided I'd figure out a 13-block setting, until I couldn't find a single fabric I liked for the fox. So I stuck with the cow replacing the 12th slot.
 
So here's my full set, which means next month I get to mess with a setting!
 
 
 
 
And, of course, little Navarre had to "help"!
 
 
 
 
During the week, I got the embroidery added onto the two other blocks that I appliqued on the cruise. Block 4 and Block 5:
 
 
 
 
 
How have your BOMs been doing? Make any progress lately? We'd love to see.  :D

Man, oh, man, your projects are astounding. What a lucky little kitty you have there, just as cute as a button! I think he needs a companion to help him get into trouble!!

Kate said...

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about Selma. Such a hard holiday season to lose them both.

But how did you manage to get the good kitten and I got the massive pain in the butt?

Lee said...

I'm sorry you lost two furry family members so close together and so recently :( Navarre is so cute! I'm sure he will be very happy and it's so wonderful of you to adopt him.

Barbara said...

I absolutely LOVE your cow jumping over the moon. Now I want to remake mine since I've never been happy with that fox. Did she create an applique for it? Or did you use a diagram from somewhere? I'm a terrible artist, so if you have something that would help, please do tell!

Barbara said...

P. S. So sorry about your kitties. It's so hard to lose a friend, and to lose them so close together is a heavy burden.

Your heart blocks are gorgeous! What a cutie, Navarre is. I looked at the 12 blocks and thought what a nice quilt top - thought they were already joined. Maybe you can find a fabric that color.

Nedra said...

Very cute kitty. And I love the name Navarre. Your quilt projects are very nice too!

Kevin the Quilter said...

Lynn! I am SO sorry! Two losses so close together! How tragic! I am sure your little Navarre is bringing some joy back into your lives, not to mention your happy little moon quilt! I love the starry background fabric you used in the blocks!

Love everything about your Hello Moon!! Sweet!

Debbie said...

Cute name, Navarre. How fun to have a kitten. Both your projects are so awesome!

Dana Gaffney said...

Lynn, I'm so sorry about Selma, your hearts must have broken losing the two of them so close together. I know Navarri will go a long way in helping, he's adorable :)

Quiltdivajulie said...

Losing one cat was hard enough for us - I cannot imagine your losing two! Very happy that Navarre has moved into your lives - he is such a handsome fellow!

Congrats on the new kitty! And your "Hello, Moon" blocks are fabulous!

Lynne said...

What a handsome little fellow. Your moon blocks look fabulous together.

I am sorry about losing your two kitties. That is so hard to go through. I lost my wonderful cat a year ago. I sure miss her. We got a new kittie this past July. She is a love-bug. I found your badge on another site and wandered over. I love your quilts, you are amazing!

Heidi said...

Navarre is absolutely adorable!
And that pink cow is too! Now we have Barbara making one too!

Leanne Parsons said...

Wow! Your calico looked just like our Merlin did. We lost her about 6 years ago, but I still think she was the pretties cat ever. Little Navarre is pretty cute too, though.

Judy said...

I'm so sorry to hear that you've lost two of your feline friends. That's so hard and there's an empty space. Navarre looks like a great addition to your family! I like your quilting, especially the applique/embroidery.

Shanna said...

I am sorry about you loosing yor babies, but this new bit of furry sunshine looks like a fun addition. You have been getting a lot of things done! Great Job!
