Chookyblue........

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Nothing like a bit of whipcracking to get me motivated!

Chookyblue is the finest whipcracker I know, with only four blocks left to stitch and two blocks to make Chooky set me the task of dedicating 15 minutes a day to stitching my GJ and I had to show her my progress by Friday, so here it is Chooky!
Birds in the Tree Done

Lawnmower Done

Smell the Roses Started and
these happy ladies traced and ready to go.
So next Friday Chooky I'll report on next weeks progress, who knows, maybe I'll have the top completed by then.
Happy Stitching Everyone!
