Painting the Town--Pink!

Yesterday morning I sewed up this easy pink bow tie block before work!  I was thinking I was all caught up and since it was an easy one, I stayed that way (or so I thought!).

 Then the Jacob's Ladder block showed up on Angela's blog so I decided to make that tonight.  It doesn't look like it has enough contrast in the picture, but it better in person.
Then I noticed that Angela's page of links had "Broken Dishes" listed on it, but not yet linked.  I had seen it before but just thought she hadn't made it yet...then I vaguely remembered seeing one...I did a search for Broken Dishes and VIOLA there is was all in pink waiting for me to find it since Hannah's birthday (Feb. 9th!).  I worked that day so somehow I missed it, but yay I sewed it up tonight and I think now I am actually on top of all the blocks...loving this RSC Challenge!
 There are my five pink blocks so far...we aren't going to comment about the fact that one of my blocks is a titch larger than the rest...I may redo it, or it may wind up in the back!
Here are Bonnie and I on the last day of the Tuscon workshops.  I miss her already and look forward to when we meet again!  In other news, we can use this picture as my "before" picture since I am getting back on the wagon and joining Weight Watchers tomorrow morning!  So excited to pick up the pace with eating right and will be riding my bike again regularly!  My goal is to get back to hiking, and for that I will need to lose enough so that my knee will stop aggravating me when I walk!  So here goes nothing, once again!
Linking up with SoScrappy's Rainbow BOM!

Great pink progress! Best wishes to you in your weight loss endeavor. I know how hard it is personally! What a wonderful photo of you and Bonnie!

Beautiful progress on your pink blocks! Best of luck with the weight watchers. Hiking sounds like a great reward for your efforts.

I love hiking and could do with losing weight myself - best of luck with WW. Your pink blocks are lovely, I had one of my craftsy 2012 BOM come out way too small instead of too big. Still no idea why but it looks good on the backing. (Still not quilted yet!)

The blocks look great! I saw a picture of myself at a family reunion in June and it was just the motivation I needed to loose weight (and being asked when I was due while holding my new baby). I did a lot of walking, 15 min at 10AM and 15 min at 3PM break and eating turkey on flatbread for lunches. I also did a lot of portion control, no second helpings. Good luck with WW.

Great blocks. Good luck with Weight Watchers. I need to cut back on my eating and start exercising more too but will wait for a change in the weather xx

Great blocks this week. Good luck with Weight Watchers. I have to be my own personal weight watcher, and it's hard on your own. You're sure to get stimulation and encouragement from the rest of the group.
