I bought these diamonds in November at a sewing room sale that our quilt guild has every year. It was a nice big bag of them for $10.00, already cut up. I started to play around with them a bit this morning. There are a few more colours than this and about 15 of each fabric - and about 20 fabrics. I think I would like to sew it up in some sort of a gradient - going from purple to green and orange - which are the main colours. I have always wanted to do a quilt like this and it was so nice to buy the fabric already cut up into the diamond shape. They are quite large - about 6 inches on each side. I will probably fiddle around with them for quite awhile yet. I don't really have a big enough design wall to put them up on properly - so I just put 6 of each, and I have some that I'm not sure if I would use at all.
Jim and I went out for a couple of hours this afternoon - went for lunch and then wandered around the stores for a bit. He got quite tired and sore by it the end of it all, but it was nice for him to get out. It has been raining steady and hard for the past 3 days and he is not really able to wear a coat so he can't just go outside for a short walk or something.
He was thinking of going to work tomorrow but after getting tired so quickly today he thought better of it and will stay home for a few more days. I made him a couple of T-shirts with the right arm and shoulder cut open and velcro put in so he is able to get into them and actually wear a shirt now.
I am working tomorrow - so he will be on his own for the day. We will see how that goes!
