Angela (soscrappy) gave SUCH an excellent name idea for my "stumped" block yesterday. "Diamond Fields" is a perfect fit for this block.
After paying bills this morning (bleh! Anyone else procrastinate with bill paying?)... I pieced together twenty blocks from all the units I had pre-sewn previously.
And then......ummmmmmm....... Now what? This literally is a design in the making; no pre-plans or much thought of how to tie them together. Therefore, I pulled...and sat back... and looked...and pulled...and pondered.... (yeah, we all know this dance, right?)
And then I thought maybe to GO BIG with the baby and come up with a connector block....
And this is where I needed to leave things for the afternoon because we had some unexpected visitors in the form of Paul's parents. They arrived at noon and stayed until a little after 3:00, just visiting on their way up to the Farm for the weekend.
OH! And all that rain today!?!?!?!?!?! Oh the poor, poor tomato plants. It's a good thing they are hilled up; they may just be okay once the water seeps into the ground. I don't have any official reading on how much rain we received today, however an acquaintance said his gauge read 2 inches at 3:00.
A portion of our neighbor's field was turned into a swimming pool. At one point today, I was considering calling the Olympic Committee to request to host the 2012 Summer swimming events in our garden and neighbor's field.
All-in-all, due to the rain and visitors, it has been a rather lazy day. Caitlyn put "The Call of the Wild" DVD into the player around 3:30; we purchased it about a month ago and haven't watched any episodes yet. I don't recall hearing about this series at all, but the 2-hour pilot was excellent, and we paused the 2nd episode in order to start dinner. Speaking of which, time for me to skidaddle back to preparing it.
