Still "stripping"

Still RRCB
 Now I have been sewing on these strip blocks for 2 days and I have just finished 26. This is going to take a long time. Hopefully I will have finished before the next clue on Friday. This strip piecing is strangely addictive. I have been trying to do other things like putting some Christmas decorations up, and buy some gifts but  all I can think of is the strips and then I am just drawn into the sewing room, lol. I did manage to buy 3 gifts but I am nearly ashamed to say it that they where for my daughter, ok that's nothing to be ashamed about right, but the other 2 where for my furry babies. Can you believe that the first gifts I buy are for my cats, not my hubby, but the cats. Does that say something about me? Is it good or bad or just a little strange?

Your blocks are lovely. I only have 40 finished. If I could sit and sew without interruptions I would have them all finished. But people and pets have to be fed and need to go outside, then back in.

well isn't easier to buy for cats than for people? I sure think so!! Look how amazing your blocks look! I LOVE them

I think those string blocks would make a great quilt just by themselves. Beautiful.

Your strip pieces are absolutely GORGEOUS!

That gives me a lot of encouragement in picking out my fabrics. I've not been able to start the mystery because of another deadline, but will be doing so next week. So, I have 5 weeks to catch up to!

Lovely, just lovely!
