Needlework Tuesday - Finishings

Yes, it was a productive week. Last week I told you about 2 projects that I was determined to finish. Each only had an hour or two of work required to finish up. I put my hands to the task and they are done.
.
The first was a wall hanging. Its 29 3/4 inches square. I attended a year long series of applique classes and made a heart of each technique. They range from fused and stitched, to hand applique. Around each heart I inked in the technique employed. You can just notice it on the second picture of the ruched heart. It is hand quilted.
.
I have attached a label and completed the documentation sheet and even photographed it. Now its waiting to February to move to hubby's office.






The second project I finished last evening. I needed to darn in some yarn ends and sew on the 31 tassels to the pictured shawl. I am so thrilled with how it turned out. It will be put to go use this winter that's for sure.
.
I suspect that there are few other almost finished projects lingering around the house. I vow to finish them as I find them. I'll continue to post my results.
.
The challenge to you is still open till next Monday. I wrote about it last Tuesday and few readers have commented that they are working on much larger projects that will take ages to finish. Post a comment if you have a project that has been sitting and it only requires and hour or two to finish.
.
I am almost finished that green scarf that I showed you last week. Will have the pic for you next Tuesday.

Over at 'Tropical Screamer' Darilyn has posted a pic of block C-4 from her version of 'Dear Jane' Quilt. She hand pieced this one.
