Diamond Fields

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.

I love the purple, green, and orange combination.... never would have thought to marry those together.

Wow!! All that rain!!! Hope nothing in the garden was lost.

Hugs!
