And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game - Joni Mitchell
Audrey of the blog Quilty Folk had a brilliant idea to applique a circle a day for a year that she called Quilty 365. I decided to play along starting on Nov 4. I had been thinking of making some type of journal quilt so decided to choose my fabrics based on some highlight of the day. I also add a little handwriting describing the highlight. Reminds me of the old Joni Mitchell song Circle Game so I'm calling my quilt Circle Game.
I'm showing my circles Nov 4 - Nov 29. I have fabrics chosen for Nov 30 and today but don't have those circles cut yet. (It's been a long couple of days at work).
And, in case you are curious about some of those highlights -
In health news I found out lumps in my breast were cysts, my granddaughter needs to carry epi-pen since she had a severe allergic reaction to fresh pineapple and my health insurance premium will go up 127 % next year...Affordable Health Care, my ass.In other news, I experienced an awesome sunrise, saw Venus every morning on my way to work and we had a record 9.9 inches of snow. I finished a book, celebrated 29 years on the job, thought I heard a mouse under my bed, bought a new laptop with Windows 10 to replace my antique Windows XP. Gas was 1.99 a gallon, we ate the last of our fresh tomatoes and I started a Peacock quilt. Can't wait to see what December brings...one day at a time.
