the circles and HP are taking over

I have been making circles any free moment I have. It has somewhat become a form of therapy which is great. Maybe this is why quilters quilt, the repetitive motion lets the mind free. So this week I had a meeting with an advisor at VCU. I have not written about this yet because I wanted a little more information and thinking time before I went public with it. I am going back to school this fall to work on another batchlor's degree in art education. I have decided that I want to be a high school art teacher. I am not crazy about small children but there is a certain lure to the high school aged ones. The idea of being able to help a handful of people continue their art is a great thought to me. I filled out my aplication and sent it in already so I am hoping to be re-admitted soon so that I can sign up for classes. I am excited about this!
I love the way that the circles are coming together and I think it is going to be a really great looking coverlet-quilt when I am done. I have another stack of circles to work on this weekend at the beach. I have still been posting things on etsy so make sure you check it out.
Currently I am reading HP (Harry Potter) 5 for the third time at the moment, before the movie comes out next week, and will read 6 before 7 comes out because there is a lot of build up in these two for the last one... I am sad this is the last one but can't wait to see what happens.... ok ok I give you permission to call me a dork here.
I am off to the beach again this weekend, maybe some more birdhouse photos, to maybe turn into a book eventually. Enjoy 7/7/07 this weekend, there is a lot of hype going on about the luck in that day,... we will see.
