Yesterday afternoon and evening I spent a lot of time arranging and rearranging the Memories of Smudge blocks. Five more possible layouts were the result. I’m having a blast playing with the blocks on the design wall.
First of all, I decided to see what it would look like with the blocks containing the lightest piece as a 9-patch in the centre. This is still a possibility.
Then I thought I’d play with them in the centre in this formation. This one is definitely out of the running.
For the third layout of the day, I thought I’d try changing the orientation of those five blocks. This one is also now out of the running.
For the fourth layout, I went back to the V idea, but with the darkest blocks on the outer edges.
And finally, again the V layout. This time with the darker blocks right around the V and the other, medium blocks on the outside edges. Looking at this photo, I think a few blocks still need to be moved. I often see things in a photo that I don’t necessarily see when looking at the blocks when they’re laid out.
There are two more layouts I’m going to try today, one of which is the S suggested by Elly in yesterday’s post. I want to decide tomorrow and get started putting the top together.
Mr. Q.O. has been entertained by some video called Gangnam style, which has inspired today’s Baxtertoon in which Baxter’s offering kitty classes in that style.
He was resting up after his vet visit. Absolutely not his favourite place to go.
