Carolina Crossroads Clue Five and Six....and Seven..

Last night I spent some time squaring and trimming my hourglass units and pinning all of the little parts of all of the block for Carolina Crossroads. This morning I went to Weight Watchers and weighed...I lost 3.2 pounds this week (for a total of 2 oz. short of 26 pounds!) which I am quite happy about. I am riding the bike for 30 minutes six days a week and this week I added walking on a very inclined treadmill (it constantly defalts to the incline) for 10 min three times a week after biking and Pilates for 30 minutes once a week. This is more exercise than I may have ever gotten in my life since I was a kid. I am almost liking it. HAHA. I have a long way to go but I am going to get there. I believe!

I went to June's for the better part of the day today and these pictures show my progress as I got this block all done and laid out all of them just to see what it would look like.

I need to cut the little blue triangles so this half block isn't quite all together yet, but getting there. I also did the four corner blocks partially but didn't take a picture of them yet.
This is as far as I got on the twenty five other blocks.

I had a good time and managed to unpin everything I had pinned and got all of this farther than I had expected. So I have a bit to go on clue five and six but I am mostly to clue seven, finally!
June spent the day trimming up and deciding on a layout for some happy blocks she has in asian inspired fabrics. We had a treat of Chinese food for lunch (leftover to my son when I got home) and I had lots and lots of coffee too. It was another fun sewing day and I am grateful for good friends to sew with.

I really like this color combination! Might have something to do with the red white and blue phase I am in right now :)
