Thanks Connie! I am just happy to use up my leftovers. :)

It will be such fun to see what we all ended up doing with that top border.

Beautiful design, Barb! You and I are headed in the same direction with the top border modifications.

I'm going to replace the '2013' with a bouquet, because apparently I cannot count and ended up with extra pieces from previous borders. Now I get to use them yay.

Here's what I am planning (you can see the '2013' in the design as reference to the size and space I'm trying to fill):

I have all the leaves and the top middle flower already done; so am hoping this won't be too much more work.

I love everyone's proposed modifications...we're pretty good at it! Hey, maybe we should design our own BOM! :shock: On second thought, probably should leave it to the pros! :lol:

I am going to leave the middle section blank for now, because I plan on putting my daughter's wedding date and their names in there. It will be their wedding present!

Another idea is to put in the pot and flowers from the bottom border.

Or maybe a large flower surrounded by 4 small one, in a diamond pattern.... like this

This is the border that I came up with. I hope you can make sense of the photo. Like I said earlier, the first picture shows how I flipped the design so that the 3 leaves are the end of the border instead of in the middle. As you can see where I redrew the bird, I flipped the bird so that it's looking to the center.

The second picture shows the small amount of re-drawing that I had to do in order to get the vine/flower section to flow in order to place it in the middle of the border. I had to adjust it just a tad on the right hand side, but as picture 3 shows, it lined up almost perfectly on the left side.

Love your nest. That's a cute idea.

What about a nest?!?!?! I hope you can see the picture - it's the same little bird inside the nest with a few eggs. (I would turn the two outside birds so they face in). Or is that too many birds?

Rosa, I'm working on this, and you are right, it seems strange that the vines come out of nowhere. I'll go back to the drawing board to change this as well. I'll post a picture once it's fused in place. I may do the 2013 a little smaller too.

Rosa - I was thinking the exact same thing! I haven't come up with what to do in the center but I'll post my idea when I do - can't wait to see your ideas... Deb :)

Re: Month 9 Border 01 Sep 2013 22:12 #109534

I haven't started on this month's border yet, but I have been considering what I can do to take the 2013 out of the border. I think I've figured out what I'm going to do... :D It always kind of seemed strange to me that the vine for the top border sort of appeared from thin air. So, I am thinking that if I flip the border as designed, the 3 little leaves which form a sort of flower would be on the end of the border instead of in the center. I would then need to switch the birds so that they are facing the correct way. That takes care of the outer parts of the border. Now for the center. It should work just to continue the u shaped vine with another "hump." Add another flower (be it the same as the rest of the border or one from another border) and there you have it! I haven't drawn it out but I really think it will work and will look good. The other thing I might change are the leaves. I'm not loving these rounded leaves. :? Maybe I'll do a mixture of leaves from the other borders. Now I'm getting excited to get it started! :lol:
