Judy L's UFO Challenge

What I Am Working On

This is my Matchstick Marimba. It is one of my UFOs that had only been cut. I was concerned that it would take a long time to piece it so decided to get a jump on it before it's number was drawn for Judy L's UFO challenge. What I am NOT working on is the UFO that Judy DID choose for this months challenge. I will work on that tonight now that I know this one will not take long to finish up.

This is my Hydrangea Shawl. I finished crocheting it last week. I wove in the ends last night and washed it. I had to soak it as I had a spot of something on there. I think it was dog slobber as my dog loved this yarn for some reason and would not leave it alone. I blocked it this a.m. and have the fan blowing on it. Can't wait to see how it looks tonight! I will probably fluff it in the dryer too.

The matchstick pieces are really great...did it use up a lot of scraps or did you have to buy yardage for it?

Your shawl is very delicate, the color perfect--the matchstick top..is an awesome pattern, it would be excellent for a donation quilt. I have so many donation wanna try it's..I had best make several. Sew Peacefully. FLO};o
