I know, I know! I thought I was going to stick with the Stormy Seas blocks but I decided to finish the blocks for row 3 of the brown & blue Silent Garden top. This is block 7 for row 3 and is definitely one of my favourites of these stars. One more to go and then all the blocks for that row will be done.

Then, of course, I had to make a Harpsichord block. This time a pretty medium orange one.

While I was working on these, my attention was really focused on the Stormy Seas blocks. I’ve sorted out exactly what I will need to print as my plan for the weekend is to get everything printed, cut and sorted into little glassine envelopes so that I can continue sewing the Stormy Seas blocks
for a while – until I’m totally distracted by the new Inklingo Golden Wedding Ring collection when it’s released.I’m thrilled I was able to find the leftover pieces of the original seven batiks because, while I don’t need to print much on them, I do need to print a few more of some of the shapes. Finding them as easily as I did proved to me that keeping small pieces is definitely a very good idea and made it easy to make the decision to add the two new light batiks to the mix. So the printer is going to get a workout this weekend!
