Challenges and crazy blocks

I've had a busy few days preparing for my tests in hospital later today, really not looking forward to it but needs must. In the meantime I've managed to get the last two TAST stitches done and got ahead of the 100 Stitches in 200 Days. TAST week 3 - chain stitch
TAST week 4 - Chevron stitch
Block one When I decided to do the 100 Stitches challenge I didn't have any crazy quilt blocks but did have these lavender and cream blocks left over from another project. I decided to use them for the challenge and put them together at the end into a wallhanging. I've just completed day 16, decided to get ahead as I'm not sure how long it will take me to come round from the tests, it normally takes me a few daysl

So these three blocks are the summation of my work on this challenge I will post individual stitch days later but I've got 10 minutes before I have to leave for hospital. I'm sure you'll be able to pick out the days for yourself though.

Block two

Block three

None of the blocks are completely finished it is very possible I'll add more stitches as the challenge goes along but thought you might like to see them so far.

Your 100 details stitches are fabulous. I really ,like the blocks to. Really showcases just the seam treatments (as oppose to all the 'fru-fru' I add!!)
