Diamond day.........

We had a rainy morning yesterday so we didn't leave the house until noon when we met my son for lunch.  I got borders sewn onto 4 more diamonds while it rained.
Here is the whole bunch on the wall with the next batch paired up.                         We went to see "the Help" yesterday afternoon.  It was actually my second time to see it and I enjoyed it even more the second time.
Dad had the last of his antibiotics last night and he is getting a lot of physical therapy at the nursing home.  He is enjoying having all 3 of his children visiting him this week.

Glad to hear Dad is doing better. He's so STRONG!

I have to tell you I had a dream about how to make the diamonds. I couldn't figure it out so I didn't sleep well. Dagnabit and this is the gawds honest truth. I mean, how to cut the dang diamond in the first place and all that. I'll go back and look today. Sheesh. Dreaming of working out a block in YOUR SLEEP. That's not my idea of fun.

Haven't seen the movie, The Help, yet but loved the book!

Oh, that is so sweet that you were all there to visit with him while he knows about it. They can slip away so fast.

And those diamonds are gorgeous! I just like seeing how you have paired them. I lvoe your matches.

My friend and I went to see "The Help" this afternoon. It was terrific- I loved the book as well.
Happy quilting,
