Challenge Results: Wow, you ladies certainly came through with a beautiful variety of projects. All of them did a wondrous job of “matching and using” the colors given. So much fun! All were winning projects and the following entries inspired the most attention:
          1st place – Carol Jarboe
          2nd place – Jan Gorely
          3rd place – Kaye Hearn
          3rd place – Pat Hersl
Maybe the ladies will bring their pieces back to show again.
