|first set of circles|
|this week's set of circles|
These two photos are of the large circles....35 in all! Not a bad number.
And these are the smaller circles...47 circles.
It's the first time I've counted the circle, and I discovered that 82 circles are done. (The photos and a calculator made that little chore easy.) Then I found another five circles hiding under a stack of the newest fabric I pulled for this project...so 87.
One of the good uses of taking pictures is that it has helped me to realize that I've gone overboard with the number of plaids that I'm using for the background. This is much too busy. I've prepped many more circles and will use those, but then I'll have to resist using the stripes and plaids for the squares. In fact, I really want to do more solid on solid to help calm this crazy down just a touch.
Otherwise, I'm loving everything about this project. Just look at this neat stack of finished blocks. Maybe I should start thinking about what I'll do with them when I call a halt. After all, that could be any day.
