First, I'm sharing a photo I took one morning about 7 am when I dropped my husband off to work in the Mohave Desert. The desert always shows us the best sunrises and sunsets, doesn't it? It also means I've got to get reacquainted with everything in there, and unpack my bags of quilty 'stuff' that I haul between Montana, California, and Arizona. It takes me awhile to figure out what to take, and then I have to find places for everything when I get home. It's the story of my life for awhile, and I'm not complaining...much. I am a bit irritated when I can't find things. For instance, I know I uncovered my chalk and ounce pads in a bin in California, and was so happy! I had been looking for them for ages in Montana. Well, now that I am back I can't find them. I could have sworn I packed them. Oh well...

In my lsat post I said that it is okay to change your mind, at least I was giving myself permission to do that! Well, today, I am giving myself permission to give this up, and move on to something else. It was an experiment and I'm not terribly unhappy that I've decided to quit this. I didn't buy any fabric, in fact, I made myself just use stash. I learned some new circle techniques, as well as appliqué ideas. But this little project is going in a bag until I decided to toss it, or maybe I'll use that background for something else another day.
I am going to try some different techniques in the next few days.
Thinking I might like it if I organized the circles. Not.
Here are a couple earlier versions.
