It is much quicker to get the blocks ready for the vertical alternate rows of the Silent Garden tops. It seems it’s so much quicker that I almost forget to take pictures before they’re joined, as I did for the brown & blue ones. For the Tranquil Garden blocks I did remember – but only just in time!
And I am not picking favourites.
Because it’s impossible.
Except – I think that maybe out of the blocks in row 2, this one may just be my favourite.
Although – hmm, maybe this – no, I am not starting down this rocky road. This is exactly why I said I wasn’t picking favourites. It’s impossible to pick just one.
While most of them are predominantly blue or pink, some of them are a mixture and others have mostly green in the centres.
My fussy cutting/printing wasn’t quite perfect for these stars. They’re not too far off, but are just quirky enough that I think it adds a little bit of character.
This is one of the few that has really no pink or blue in it at all.
When I was laying out the stars, I realized I had enough to make the Tranquil Garden top a bit longer than the brown and blue Silent Garden top. So then I quickly added the setting pieces to the final alternate block for row 2. What a difference taking the photo on a piece of batting as opposed to that hot pink batik makes – I think I prefer the stars against the batik.
The leaves are finally starting to make an appearance and soon we’ll have our lovely curtain of green mostly hiding the office tower on the other end of the complex.
And there has been lots for Jake to watch out on the roof garden.
Baxter has spring fever. He has been racing around the apartment, tossing toys in the air, meowing for more and more playtime and, of course, hiding his favourite toys so that we have to crawl around on the floor, looking under furniture for them. And then he crashes on the corrugated cardboard scratching surface in the middle of this toy. He sleeps there often. I can’t even begin to understand why as that has to be uncomfortable, especially in comparison to his little house or a nice soft spot on the couch.
