FOs - Last ones for a while!

There were a couple of hats and a pair of fingerless gloves:

I also finished this.  It was one of my great-aunt's UFOs that I inherited.  I've been working on getting it completed for years and it was one of the UFOs I'd hope to get completed last year.  There were 120 blocks originally.  I sewed them into block of 4 then seamed them.  I see why it she didn't finish it.  The thread was from several dye lots, but now that it's completed it's not that bad.  The only regret I have is that I don't have enough thread to do a border,  When I can get out and about I'll look, but for now, I'm calling it done.  I'm going to use it as a topper in the guest room, but it could also be used as a tablecloth.  If I decorated for spring, I'd use it with white placemats and my thrifted green luncheon dishes.

And that's it folks!  Until I gathered items for these posts, I didn't realize I'd gotten so much accomplished.  No wonder I was so exhausted!  Of course I've got lots more on the needles and hooks.  The machine will have to wait until I can negotiate the steps.

If you're going to Maryland Sheep and Wool, have fun!  Be sure and post to your blogs so I can enjoy it vicariously.

Those hat ensembles are so chic!
Good for you finishing that UFO. I hope someone does that for me one day. I'm leaving plenty behind.

I am sitting here with a very bad case of the MDSW blues. This is the second year in a row that I'm going to have a rush, rush trip in order to say at least I got there-if only for a few hours. I really need to learn to say NO-and mean it. The first weekend in May is MINE. :(
