Weight Loss Monday

Why yes, it is time for the official weigh in at the WW meeting tonight. Guess what?? I really was down by 6.4 pounds!!! So I managed to keep it off this week so far. I went to the gym today and worked out for ah hour then went to Pilates for an hour and then I came home to eat. I was starved!! When I got home from work and before I left I let the dog out into the front yard and then I happened to look out the window and this is what I saw.
Sidney and Laxy
The little girl next door was sitting next to Laxy petting her. It was too cute!

I told you I was working on a baby quilt and I thought I would share the blocks with you so here ya go:
Sail Away 001
and these
Sail Away 002
and then the tall ships
Sail Away 003
They surround a BIG ship and I decided that I want to use U of M fabric for the base of that one but I don't have it finished yet. I did realize that the background fabric I was using had directional fish on it. So that meant re-cutting some of the pieces and I suspect I will need to do some more before it is done too. Oh well. I got all this flue fish fabric on clearance so it's OK. I even found some cute sail boat fabric that I can use with the fish for the back too. Good day shopping in the stash!!

Let me know what you think of the boats! I hope you all have a good day too.
