Design wall

With very little time to sew last week I still managed to get this complete circle ready to applique...but I'm not sure where I'm going with this. Jeffrey said I should make 5 more and make a traditional style quilt with it but I'm thinking more...artsy than that....
This is what I'm quilting; that's April and May that you see there:

This is the last of the embroidery for the Christmas books; this week I need to fit in the book making for at least 2 but really I'd like to finish the 50! that I appliqued this month and last. (Here are some finished one's if you'd like to see them.)

I found this small stack of magazines that have been waiting for me to look through and pull what I think I might want to do someday. I'll pull them out and put them in one of my notebooks;
Here are my 5 Christmas notebooks that I look through when I run out of things to do. Melissa wants a Nativity to stitch so I skimmed through them quickly this morning. I started looking at the dates; my earliest date was Good Housekeeping 1978; which is the year my oldest was born.

Judy has more design walls up this wonderful November day.
It's time to go exercise....bye.

I also use notebooks to keep pages of projects that I want to do. I go thru them every now and again to cull.

You have been busy. I also use binders for my magazines. I think it is time to go through them again.

I used to keep binders of stuff, but when we moved to the RV, I just couldn't take all the binders! I scan the things I want to keep into PDF files now. It's a little more work, but it's convenient. I love your circle -- it's fascinating! :)

ohhhh love love love the circle!!! I think that you should do one more - cut it in half - then put all three in some kind of art quilt - its super cool. Can't wait to see what you decide!!!

the circle project is very interesting, looking forward to what you come up with for it.
I keep magazine ideas in binders too, but limit myself to 3 big ones and every once in a while I go through and cull them out. It's always interesting to see how I will no longer want to make something that I can remember REALLY wanting to make one day.

I like your scrappy wedge circle. I never thought to use it that way with scraps. Looks really good.
