Mosiac Bargello

I found this pattern by Dereck Lockwood a couple of years ago and fell in love with it. I just never thought I would make it - just another pattern to sit in the drawer and stay on my to-do list.
Well I decided to start it a few weeks ago. I managed to get the yellow ones done and again I thought it would be awhile before I would finish it - Another UFO
My mother and sister came down for the weekend and I thought this would be something I could do while they were here. And a good thing too - I wouldn't have gotten as far without my sisters help. We worked on it all weekend and when they left Monday morning I didn't have a whole lot left. So when I got off work I plunged in. It took 4 more hours and they were done.
I couldn't stand it and had to lay them out to see what they would look like.

Now I can't wait to put them together and get the border on. At least I have them this far and it won't take much to finish it - Another UFO
