Ok, here are the 5 blocks I have finished. I have 3 more to do, then I can put it together. That square of tannish fabric is the background I picked out for the background the other night. I like how it looks with the outer points, as well as the inner. Once I get the setting squares and triangles cut out, I will take another pic, as I realize that I should've hung it closer to the outer points, but I don't want to keep messing with those diamonds as they are pretty stretchy at this point. I spent a lot of time agonizing over the colors, and the order they should be in. I wanted them to blend to some extent, but also to stand out, if that makes sense.
The first full week of school went well. I am ready for the weekend, though. I am going to Earling tomorrow to visit and attend a little party for my niece's 21st birthday. Should be fun!
