I can't do any more Brick Blocks as I've run out of design wall space and I can't get an overall impression of how its going when the blocks are piled on top of one another.
So it's time to clear the bigger design wall. That means back to Music is Magic.
I started planning the layout and putting the first row together yesterday.
I originally wanted the letters to jump about a bit, but it didn't seem to work with this quilt. So this is how I feel it should look.
I'm starting with 1" strips between each letter, but I may need to rethink that as I progress.
I need to drop "beyond" down a bit so it doesn't clash with the A above it and make it more centred.
The second row needs moving down a bit too so the two A's are separated out.
I want to leave the "y" in "beyond" as it is, dropping down between "all" and "we", and the last line will need to be spread out a bit as the exclamation mark has still to be done.
Once the top is finished it can be pinned on The Young One's wall as is until I'm ready to quilt it.
In the meantime, I still adding to the pile of strings when I get an opportunity to play Leaders and Enders.
Changing the subject.
The second series of Downton Abbey started the Sunday before last. For me it's not hitting the same spot as the first series did. I'm finding the actors a bit wooden and I get the feeling they are reading their lines off an auto cue. All except the brilliant Maggie Smith.
We'll see what happens this coming Sunday which appears to be a bit more exciting. Lady Edith needs a good hard slap, but I won't spoil it for you!
And woohoo! The last in the current series of Dr Who tomorrow night. I wonder if all will be revealed.
