Mystery Challenge

I have been working oh so diligently on my "top secret" projects as well as having something to share with you too.  I didn't want you to think I was a slacker.  No slacking in this Queen's Palace!  And then Jo at Jo's Country Junction threw out a challenge.  Oops there goes the diligence right straight out the window.  Her challenge was to work on or finish that UFO you've been working on before Bonnie Hunter announces her next Mystery Challenge later this month or the first of November. You can read about Jo's challenge here.  

Well Shucks!  I haven't worked on my Grand Illusion Mystery since the last time Jo threw out a challenge just before the retreat way back in July.  Oh Geez!  I really don't have time for this but I can't pass up the challenge.  I really need to work on it at least.  Halloween is just around the corner (and no there is no way I will finish it by then, even though I told myself months ago that I should).  Sooo.....

I kinda set a goal for myself in that I wasn't going to work on it for more than 1 hour in a day and maybe not every day.... I'd have to see.... but I would work on it.  Well, I worked on it last night late, for way more than an hour... and this is what I got accomplished.

20 more Unit 4 A blocks completed.  That brings my total to 40 and that's what is needed!  Whoo Hoo!

AND... I got 20 more unit 4B blocks finished, bringing my total to the needed 40 as well!  Check that off!!!

Pretty darn good progress I think!  I think I have all the pieces cut for the 200 Unit 1 blocks.  I just need to make a bazillion half square triangles and then assemble them.  We'll see how much progress  I make in this next week.  

Are you participating in Bonnie's Mystery Challenge?  It really is a lot of fun and it's so inspiring to see everyone's color choices.
