I'm thinking in circles

I have finally cleaned one section of my shelves and have fabrics in order on this section.  If a shelf falls in the night, you know it was overloaded.  It's still too full, but at least it has been straightened up by necessity.  Also has some new supports underneath.
I've been working with circles.  My husband gave me a wonderful Olfa circle cutter.  It's a great tool, cuts circles in seconds.  It's so much fun, I find myself surrounded by circles.  Now what to do with them once they are cut?
I do have a plan, so I must get busy and get it organized into a quilt.

Outside my kitchen window 02/13/2010

February is moving fast

How can February be half-way over?  Celebrating Valentine's Day was the first big clue February was moving too fast.  It's a short month, but it could slow down a little.  We've had snow, which for Georgia is not common.  At least not three inches of snow.  But the grandchildren loved it, the remains of their four snowmen still remain standing if not a lot skinnier and shorter. 
The sun catcher that activates spinning when the sun hits it began sending little rainbows all around my kitchen walls and ceiling.  It was beautiful to see the colors again.  The sun has changed it's direction and now shines directly on the catcher.  Could that mean Spring may really appear in March?  Longer days mean more beautiful rainbows on my ceiling.
I've not been working on my quilts as much as I should.  Seems there are things that get in the way.  But tomorrow is a new day and I have a border to decide on for my challenge quilt for our guild.  I will get busy.
