I have spent a lot of time considering my floors - one kitchen and one conservatory. The dilemma has been that when I lay out my lighthouses and words, I haven't liked what I've been able to achieve with fabric as much as I have liked the tiles!
Well I think I'm happier with my words encased in fabric now, but haven't quite been able to let go of the floor, especially the terracotta one, so in the end I went back to my boxes of fabric and found something that I think might do the trick. Here is one of my shorter blocks, with the new fabric incorporated:
And here it is in its place, more or less:
I've also been pondering layout in a more general way: I've been trying to make 6 lighthouse work, but I have a couple of problems with this. Firstly the pieces I have now are very wide and I don't much want to follow any route I've come up with for adding some length. Also, some numbers are just more pleasing to my eye: 3 is good, 6 doesn't float my boat, 9 is one I have kept coming back to in all sorts of contexts this year, so I am going to bite the bullet: 3 more lighthouses coming up.
