Circles Galore

I bought this contraption to make circles. It's pretty cool. I can go from 1" to 5.5" circles. The nobby-like thing has a rotating blade in it and I just put the blade in the sized circle I'm wanting, hold the nob perpendicular to guide, and the guide thing swivels around giving me a nice cut circle. Who do I thank for this? Martha Stewart.

(Speaking of convicts, I just finished reading Orange is The New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison by Piper Kerman and I thought it was really good.)

Here's my finished Doodles in Math Class, the reason for taking the cutter out of it's packaging.

Yay! I wish I had a bottle of champagne in the fridge because finishing this thing is cause for celebration. It's been in my studio way past its expiration date.
