Quick and Dirty

Sometimes it feels like the days are so full that I hardly have a second to think. I know you know what this is like. Normally...pathetically...at 9:20 pm I'd be fast asleep. But tonight I was determined that before I went to bed I would post something...anything here. The funny thing is I've got images to post. What I lack lately is that quiet time it takes to put my thoughts together. Well I'm rebelling against that reality and posting despite the lateness of the hour and the rambling that's going on in the background. I'm also determined to post because I am practically halfway through my twinkle king size quilt.
Check this out:


Am I the only one who hears Jon Bon Jovi singing, "Oh, we're halfway there!"?

This is the coolest thing I have seen in such a long time. I would love to understand how you accomplish the circles. It's amazing!

Sophie said...

Wow - looks like a BIG project. I too have know idea how you've done this and would love to understand. If you would let us in on the (shhh) secrit we'd appreciate it - when you can next snatch a moment to blog that is.

Oh! This is awesome. Can't wait to see the finished product. And, tell us more about your wall! What are you using up there to post stuff up there? Do you have something over the wall?
