circle line


I got circle blocks, how cool is that?

This is what my shelf of uncarved blocks looks like right now, packed full with 185 blocks. Yikes.


...and on a totally different subject - last night I dreamed I met Barack Obama on a Circle Line Cruise. Interesting.

How bizarre is that? I mean the dream and circle connection. BTW, what are those circles? Things that you're going to carve?

Elin said...

Yeah, they're Safety-Kut blocks.

Yum! That shelf looks like a whole lotta fun!! And circles, who knew? Cool.

I love everything you've created so far, but the birds are my favorites.

How very cool -- shows how long it has been since I purchased new carving blocks.

You are really inspiring me to get back to my own carving...AND to actually DO something with all of the ones I did a long time ago.

I LOVE your block-a-day project!

Wow! It looks like a store! I really like your work. That Yes image is really great.

Isn't carving stamps fun? I didn't realize there were circles available! And I just resolved not to buy anything else for a while! Oh well, I didn't think it was a realistic resolution :-)
