promises.........

On Saturday morning I set a challenge with Susan..............
We were going to get our strips done by Sunday night..............

I worked pretty hard yesterday I was all stripped out........ and I am not finished but the end is in sight..........3 strips pieced............3 strips pinned together all worked out.........top and bottom have piles of fabric and that is about it......
And also yesterday morning Shez showed us her daisy block and I said I would get mine done.............well it was my last job in the Chook shed for the day but I did get it done before dark......just.....
Thanks girls..............I achieved lots with your motivation........blogging is great..........
Susan's your good at cracking the whip too............the really weird thing is we both emailed each other pics of what we had done right at the same time last night...............how freaky is that..........psychic minds...............
Keep Stitching............
