Another Damn Quilt
I continue to be in finishing mode with the quilting thing, and finished this sucker over the weekend. It has the imaginative title Labyrinth. Four years in the making, it has over 3000 individual pieces. Technical details are over at State of the Craft, as is the custom.
Why? I'm not sure. Why does anybody do anything?
Here's some fresh linkage for all of you map and geography dorks. You know who you are, and it's absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. The book arts and image dorks might want to check some of these out, too.

Meanwhile, by way of Chance's blog I discovered the following entertainment. It's the most map fun you can have without a map. Or maybe it's not. Kind of interesting, though. Can you top my 88?
Two weeks into the beard project, we have a bona fide (albeit admittedly quite scrawny beard), as seen at left. Interestingly, I had a test of beard resolve at this fragile state of new growth. I am going to interview for a possible promotion at work tomorrow morning. After brief internal debate, I have resolved to keep the beard and rely on my snappy repartee to get me through the hour. I'll trim the neck, of course.
Anybody with good mojo to spare at 9 a.m. PST tomorrow, I'd appreciate whatever you've got. You know I'd do it for you.
