I got a little carried away in my original plan on the borders for Nancy’s Ocean Waves. I decided I needed to scale back a bit. My original design has a Mariner’s Compass in one corner and a ship’s wheel in the opposite corner with this rather intense swirly-twirly ocean applique design.

intense-border1Hahaha. Yeah, I just kept drawing. And adding circles. The other two corners include a house with a lighthouse.


I am kinda in love with my borders but the free design sheet will have a much simpler border. I don’t want to overwhelm anyone. The borders for Nancy’s Ocean Waves will be something like this with some starfish and shells. And probably some circles…


I am determined to keep working on these until they are done so I can post the update to the design sheet. No promises on a date though. Real life always interrupts my plans…
