Word...le

Whew! That was a lot of blocks! I'm still working on more, but nothing new to post today. I'm purposely posting them one block per entry, because eventually I want to make a Blurb book of all my Dear Jane blocks. I figure if I'm going to put so much time into this quilt, I should document it!

So surfing around my blog feed today, I saw something interesting on Anina's blog (who happens to be the wonderful host of the Dear Baby Jane Quilt Along). Here is my wordle cloud:

Ok, it's smaller than I expected, but I'm too lazy to make it larger. So apparently Wordle takes your most frequently used words and makes a word cloud out of it. I don't think it takes into account the entire blog, maybe the first few posts? In any case, I wasn't too surprised about "block" or "fabric" or even "freezer" and "paper", but I was surprised about "really". Then I realized that I (really really really) like to repeat the word when I'm writing...

In any case, I am late on my Common Threads block, and I found out that it was Melissa's birthday too! I am a bad quilting bee participant! But I will get it to you as soon as I can!

In looking at your recent posts, I see wonderful quilting being done at your house. What a lot of work but what a treat for us to see.

I saw that Wordle thing on someone else's blog. I ought to give it a whirl, too.

I should really start using "block" more often since my most common word was "little". What's up with that?

This is fun! Your words totally make sense. I tried it on my blog, and I'm embarrased to say that mine are all "non-words", e.g. "like", "just", "got", etc... In other words I sound like a dumb teenager! :P

I saw this on Anina's blog too, but I couldn't figure out how to get it on mine. It was fun to see the words!

What a neat idea to do a Blurb book. I had never seen that before. I'm kind of old fashioned... I've been typing up entries, printing them out, and then putting them in a binder with little scraps of each of the fabrics I've used. That Blurb thing seems way cool!

Hmm... I may need to try that Wordle thing too.
